boots which are made in Italy.

When you think of leather do you automatically think of black, grungy motorcycle jackets or rich, brown leather?
After a year of going through a phase wear girls dressed like Taylor Momsen with rocker-chic black leather jackets, this fall seems to be heading towards sleek brown leather jackets.
While I was cool hunting around the city I stumbled upon some fashion savvy people with brown leather items such as bags, boots, jackets, and belts all in different shades and styles. Most of the people I interviewed stated that they had purchased their item in Italy, home of the world’s highest quality leather.

Christian Dior’s fall 2010 collection, for instance, featured brown leather quite heavily with its cape-like jackets, thigh-high boots and pants. Dior also displayed different shades of brown such as mocha and a deep reddish-brown colour.
The fall 2010 line for Chloe was inspired by seventies American sportswear with a pair of caramel leather trousers and a beige leather quilted jacket.

The tan leather jacket, particularly, is very popular with the Brit Pop and Indie music image and culture and is famously worn by people such as Kelly Jones of the band,“The Stereophonics”.
Reporter Sarah Mower, in her article for Telegraph on titled “Pre-fall 2010 heralds the return of classic dressing, brown leather…” had noted that, “All of a sudden, black looks dull and wrong, and tan looks exciting and new.”
So whether it’s a jacket, bag, belt, or shoe, brown leather should definitely be a staple in your closet for this fall 2010 season.
