It’s fun time in the office!


January is normally one of those let down months, y’know after all the holidays, food feasting, present giving, days off and free smiles and laughter its a tough act to follow – but we can get pretty excited about January here in the office. We are getting ready to show our new leather jackets for the 2012 collection.  It’s actually kind of fun – kind of like a shopping spree, where you can try everything on, there are no limits to how much you spend and everyone acts like it is already yours, suggesting nips and tucks to make it fit better.  I love it!

All our seamstresses and craftsman come to the drawing board with various designers and put together lots of rough drafts for us to look at – tempting us with new colors, types of leathers, daring designs and re-makes of some classics.  So we can spend day after day, swirling, preening and dancing in front of the mirror trying to decide what our shoppers are going to go wild over!

Last year, we narrowed down our selection and choose about 15 new pieces but we experimented with leather clothes, like vests and pants in leather.  The vests were a hit – especially with the men.  And the short leather skirt with the front slit, that went over very well (I imagine with the men as well as the women! at least it worked that way at my house, he couldn’t keep his hands I mean eyes off of me)  As far as the jackets were concerned – frills and peplum were in last year – but not for 2012.   Our color selection was more towards trendy with lilacs and burgundies.

This year promises to be even more fun – we are cleaning out many style that we have had with us for at least 4 – 5 years and replacing them with updated versions in different types of leather and many new colors.  We will be playing with extra soft leathers – almost like suede that have absorbed the coloring in various ways, sometimes giving the leather that washed vintage look.  Below I have picket out three of my favorites for this year.  The first color reminds me almost of a “marinaio” or sailors yellow slicker, but without being too loud.  The style we have opted for this mens jacket highlights some decorative stitching on the front and simple lines in the waist.  The leather is supple and the color has taken in a shade that shows more intense in certain lights.

Another favorite will be featured in one of our ladies jackets and it is what I would call a dusty brown. The soft brushed leather gives it that vintage look, as if it had been hidden in the closet just waiting to come back into style. It is extremely light which makes this ideal for spring and summer wearing.

I like strong colors, but I prefer them to have an earthy feel to them, and this green is right up my alley. Almost a lime green but not that “in your face” this leather is smooth and soft … like a babies bottom. The style we have picked for this jacket will be perfect for the spring and summer evenings, it is a little fitted but definitely lightweight and has a mandarin collar.

  1. I’m with you on the softer earthier tones. I think you can remove to much of the stigma of the leather jacket if you’re not somewhat reserved. It does appear as though its going to be an exciting year for leather.
