LEATHER... from runways to Sophie's Closet...

Céline, Hermès

Balmain, Prada

Leather -- both in terms of wear and in terms of accessories -- are all the fuss this season, in a range of colours from classic black, brown and tan to saturated reds and yellows. Fall always demands leather: it's soft, warm, and weather-proof. On the runways, Hermès, Prada, Céline, Balmain and Louis Vuitton all rocked leather ensembles and the September issues are just drowning in leather: Liya Kebede in Vogue Italia and Kat Dennings and Jessica Chastain on the cover of W. Leather accessories have expanded beyond bags, to jewelry and headbands. Model Miranda Kerr is wearing an amazing long leather statement necklace in Spanish Vogue.

As much as we wold love to walk around with a half metre long necklace around our necks, we would much rather go for a more realistic leather piece of jewelry like a bracelet or a headband. Chan Luu, Vita Fede and Ettika all offer an assortment of leather bracelets in various sizes and colours.

Chan Luu's wrap bracelets are quite classic and elegant and can be easily paired with precious stones.

Vita Fede's leather bracelets are definitely a bit on the edgy rock side. They would go great with a casual outfit or with a sexy body-con dress (think Rhianna). How cute is the one with stars? It just screams "Baby, I'm a star!"

VITA FEDE "Pesci" Bracelet (AED 740)

VITA FEDE Cometa Double Cream Bracelet (AED 520)

Ettika's bracelets are fun and playful, especially the one with charms. It's always fun wearing something that dangles! The crystal deerskin leather bracelet also comes in an array of colours

ETTIKA Braided Wrap Charm Bracelet (AED 450)

Feeling like wearing some leather on your head too? There is no better accessory than Jennifer Behr's headbands. Two beautiful new leather pieces are combined with gold for a glamorous look. The studded headband is beyond amazing! The white headwrap with crystal plays up on a more romantic side of leather, soft and elegant.
