Leather was seen in multiple forms on the AW13 runways, appearing as tops, skirts, jackets, and dresses. Designers draped and pleated leather to create new shapes for the upcoming season. When paired with flowing fabrics or contrasting textures, leather can provide an interesting element to any outfit. Presented in mainly monochromatic neutral colors, the leather pieces that brands such as Hermes, Calvin Klein, and Jil Sander incorporated into their collections call just enough attention to the designs without dominating the overall aesthetic of the looks.
