High gloss leather is a huge story for fall 2012 with super-shiny skins appearing on the runways of Thakoon, Tommy Hilfiger and Acne.
The full-on gloss look will be sure to make a bold style statement, however if the ultra-polished effect is too outré for your tastes you can opt for a more subtle taken on the trend. Marni and Jil Sander presented tow-tone garments with a combination of leather paneling and wool or jersey which underscores the look without heading into Gothic territory.
Our worsted wool jacket with exaggerated patent leather lapel is a perfect way to dip into the trend. Pair with our tapered, skinny back wool pants featuring patent leather patches for head-to-toe leather perfection!
For the less brave, alternatively, simple dangle a high gloss bag from your shoulder for easy shiny chic!
