Wish list: LEATHER

Because it’s Monday, and it’s about to get really friggin’ cold in London, I decided to compile a list of warm leather pieces that will not only keep you warm; they will keep you DRY!

Since moving from the tropics to The Big Smoke, leather has been my best friend, helping me keep the wind and the rain from my ill-accustomed bones.  So, lucky me, it’s a SUPER TREND right now!

Leather doesn’t get any better than All Saints, and this oxblood shrunken biker is ULTRA! It costs as much as rent, but is so worth it! £398 from allsaints.com

This Oasis quilted leather mini is RYCH. Just retro enough to keep a girl happy, but edgy enough to join a biker gang. Love. £80, available from Oasis

Markus Lupfer’s merino (LUSH) jumper with the sequined lips on it will make any leather look a million times cooler. And any reference to Rocky Horror Picture Show is alright with me. £315, from net-a-porter

Acne is my latest obsession, they are simply too cool for school. This bag comes in two sizes, the the tiny one is just simply darling, non? It’s a snip at £500 from shop.acnestudios.com/

And those red leather biker pants, from The H&M Collaboration That Shall Not Be Named…my one true love. As the poet Cher once said: “If I could turn back time…”…I would certainly make this my priority in that crazy rush sale!
