Leather Was the Layer of Choice at Milan Fashion Week

Since the ’50s, when the likes of Marlon Brando and James Dean rocked them on the big screen, leather jackets have possessed an unbreakable cool factor. Often associated with bikers and bad boys, they have been altered and toyed with by designers for decades. More recently, the trend of long leather coats has taken off–and not only in the black duster style of The Matrix–both on the runway and in street style. In Milan, designers have made their own alterations to the timeless look, ditching the cliché motorcycle jacket and reviving old silhouettes with a touch of leather.

Miuccia Prada put a colorful twist on leather outerwear at the Prada Fall/Winter 2020 show, with coats in every shape and style. Puffer jackets with the sophisticated shape of blazers came down the runway, paired with colorful ensembles and cinched at the waist. Shiny patent coats and vests were lined with brown shearling, offering a stylish option for the colder months. Mini Prada bags, large sunglasses, and chunky boots completed the bold looks.

Silvia Fendi’s newest collection featured classic, womenswear garments with a modern twist. There were monogram Airpod cases, oversized shopping bags, and lots of leather. Coats with large, bulbous sleeves in bold colors took the classic leather jacket to new, fashionable heights. A simple coat was turned into the ultimate fashion statement in pastel yellow layered over a sheer dress and fishnets, and others were paired with matching leather skirts to create a monochrome, uniform look.

Patchwork was the catch of the day at Marni’s Fall/Winter 2020 show. Leather duster coats with multicolored suede and velvet patches were paired with matching dresses, skirts, and trousers. The unconventional, homespun garments were topped off with dramatic, shimmering hair and makeup.

The longline silhouette was also transformed at Salvatore Ferragamo. Designer Paul Andrew created leather outerwear with understated, asymmetrical details, like a gray trench coat that only belted on one side. A sleek leather cape also appeared on the runway, encasing the model’s arms. These complemented the leather accessories and footwear in the collection, for which the brand is known.
