Leather gets a softer touch with feminine interpretations and details
Implications - Leather is typically associated with edgy, rocker-style looks, but now designers are coming up with new ways to use this staple material. Leather is being interwoven into more feminine styles and designs, with everything from sleep masks and scarves getting a luxe leather infusion. This adds softness to the traditional tough look of leather while also allowing fashion consumers to give their styles more of an edge.
