Leather featured prominently when a number of brands in the LVMH group presented their ideas for spring-summer 2023 ahead of the next editions of the Paris and Milan fashion weeks, writes Leatherbiz
In presentations in early July, Fendi combined leather with feathers in a new version of its Roma bucket bag, and Loewe showed a leather coat with a cluster of “tech relics”, including earphones, a pen drive and a phone case, attached. For its part, Celine included leather trousers in its collection.
A particular stand-out, however, was Givenchy’s use of “ultralight leather” in a range of shell jackets. The play of fabrics also included pieces made from a patchwork of upcycled leather offcuts, “laminated for a super-luxe look”.
