Three out of 12 for leather in FT fashion-week picks

Leather plays a major part in three of the top 12 stand-out looks picked by Financial Times fashion editor, Jo Ellison, after fashion week events in Paris, Milan, London and New York at the start of 2018. All designs are part of autumn-winter 2018-2019 collections.

Ms Ellison included in her list a goatskin coat by Chloé, part of a Claude Chabrol-inspired collection compiled by Natacha Ramsay Levi for the brand. Jo Ellison said the coat was an example of “excellent outerwear” in the collection, and she said the hair-on goatskin was “as rich and luxurious as the finest clotted cream”.

She also described as “deliciously good” a long leather shirt-dress in caramel colours that Jonathan Anderson included in his collection for Loewe.

Finally, she highlighted the “sleazy leathers” that have helped designer Clare Waight Keller make a successful start for Givenchy. Jo Ellison said the leathers the new Givenchy artistic director picked helped her achieve a post-Wall Berlin look, with East-versus-West clashes.

For its part, Givenchy said the inaugural collections of Ms Waight Keller, who joined the brand in May 2017, have been a success. During the recent Paris and Milan fashion weeks, and in anticipation of the designer’s first ever Givenchy collection, spring-summer 2018, reaching its stores, it set up themed displays at its flagship stores in both cities to add to the anticipation.
