For as long as we know, leather and summer have never been friends. But the runways of S/S ’20 are depicting this unlikely union. Labels like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Bottega Veneta, and Max Mara went big on the material, rolling jackets, structured dresses and tailored pants out in a medley of saturated colours (think tomato red and tumeric yellow). We show you how we’re styling our buttery-soft leather pieces. Pro-tip: while they might be ultra-comfy, dust a little baby powder on your skin before wear to ensure a comfortable day out.
