I am absolutely under a great impression of the latest modificationsin fashion of this traditional yet timeless material because of its versatilityand adaptability. It is one of few statements giving the impression of strengthand chic to the look. There is also a great room for fetish influences as well.There are designers who used the leather like a tool sculpturingdifferent forms, releasing numerous messages and giving a great significance totheir own trademark. These designers’ work makes my heart meltingbecause of their approach to fashion treating it like a form of expression notlike a chase of the latest trends.
Ann Demeuleemester created a poetic vision of modern army of amazons, bird-like creatures and mythological fauns armored in leather ensembles, feather headpieces and goat furs and chains. The show was accompanied with the melancholic melody of Erik Satie’s piano compositions entitled “Trois Gymnopedies” though the finale of echoes of Black Swan by Tchaikovsky . There is a great range of unique leather pieces – musketeer gloves, wedge boots, leather belts with bandoliers with feathers instead of bullets, leather leggings, and deconstructed lacing girdles and one-of-a-kind collars.
