Wading through a monotonous line-up of winter wares? Inject a healthy dose of colour and texture with a pair of fashion set-approved rainbow-hued leather trousers.
Spotted on the legs of the fashion set at fashion month wasn’t only indigo-hued jeans or dad-inspired suit trousers. No, speckled in among the sea of monotone literal leg-warmers were splashes of rainbow-toned leather, clad on only the coolest legs among the crowd.
Indeed, after Copenhagen Fashion Week – which saw Ganni, Baum und Pferdgarten and Remain showcase their upcoming spring/summer 2022 collections – in August, there was a 50% spike in searches for coloured leather trousers after a clutch of It girls sported them to the three-day event.
Accordingly, the most popular pairs come by way of Ganni, Katie Holmes-approved Khaite and Rotate Birger Christensen, the brand Remain’s older and slightly splashier sister. Indeed, the latter can be credited with purveying the trend, after it released matching bandeaus, trousers and blazers earlier this year, all crafted from vegan coloured leather, which have been a go-to for fashion lovers since.
Whether you’re in the mood for a lilac leather love-in or would prefer yours in the colour of the season, which we’re calling Luigi green, there’s a coloured leather trouser for everyone.
