Runway News: Designer Leather Garments at Resort 2017

It seems like all eyes are on the Resort 2017 shows nowadays. Fashionistas from all over the world are curious to check the latest trends in fashion for the following year. Leather was not taken off the pedestal even for this season, so feel free to enjoy our selection of the best leather garments during the Resort 2017 fashion shows so far.

Sexiness is back at Versace, but - in keeping with the more midwestern, American mood, Donatella Versace set out her Resort 2017 collection - it’s a different, more various kind of sexy. Donatella brought up an emergent trend of the season: the comeback of dressing in black. Starting with sleek silhouettes, black leather-trimmed suits, laser-cut bonded leather jackets and skirts, as well as long jackets and black leather belted coats.

You might be used seeing Elie Saab’s long, sheerly romantic garments and soft fabrics, and have been surprised by Saab’s choice of leather for this season. Saab paired the black leather bomber jacket with little floral details, together with a mini skirt in the same fabric, and a black silk blouse underneath, mixing the romantic diva spirit with the punk-rock chic rebelled mood.

The Resort 2017 at M Missoni was mostly about youth and vibrant energy. The bold leggings, boxy jackets, and sporty sandals offered an easy going vibe, and the black leather bomber jacket wasn’t skipped either. Styled with a black, transparent bikini top underneath, and a black mid waist mini skirt, finished up with accessories and additions in red and purple, this fabulous outfit is perfect for a cool night out with you gals.   

Although bright colors were key of Tomas Maier’s Resort 2017 collection, there were some eclectic long leather coats in pastels, as well as in black and dark hues. Bottega Veneta seemed to avoid sportswear for this season, in favor of tailoring and a strong emphasis on outerwear. The black leather trench combined with a beige woven intrecciato bag, and a pair of elegant grey pumps described the “New York in the 80’s” story in the most vivid way.
