LEATHER IS THE NEW DENIM

I remember watching Matrix for the first time and thinking about the fashionable aspects of this movie. Except of everything black it was the use of leather which really caught my eye. I liked the idea of using it for uniforms to emphasize Neo's and his Matrix gang's unique rebellion. 

Many years later I still consider leather as one of the most rebelious materials out there and Gareth Pugh as one of its masters. No one knows his stuff so well but this enfant terrible
What about you, do you think leather is the new denim?

  1. I like the idea of leather being the new denim, but I think leather is in an entirely separate league of their own; tough, versatile, completely swoon-worthy, the material is definitely something to don when we need a little boost in badassery and confidence. You look amazing as usual, Ira, so cool and chic at the same time!

  7. I think leather, denim - they're both classics in their own right. You can achieve a rebellious tone with either material but I definitely get what you mean. I lean more towards leather even though I probably own more denim in real life.

  8. Leather is in a league of it's own. I have to admit back in those Matrix days I never considered leather to be chic, but I did think it was sexy in that movie loooooool! I love the leather look these days, especially a fab jacket like a biker. Nothing fiercer.

  9. Agree with you, May! It's a different kind of fabric and has a completely different impact as a fashionable piece. Definitely a boost of any simple look. Thanks so much, babe!

  19. You're the master of minimalist badassery, Ira, I really love this look!
    The Matrix is oh so stylish, even years after it remains inspirational (I want every single one of the jackets they feature). And Gareth Pugh had one of the best collections I've seen for spring/summer 2016, he's brilliant!
    Ha ha, the denim jacket on the wall is a nice touch, very clever :-)

    I do like leather, but think I prefer denim more. I have denim shorts, bags, dresses, skirts, jackets.....I just have leather bags and jackets haha. Not an even balance at all!

  24. I think leather honestly makes a rebel a REBEL. When I think of a leather piece, leather defines it. Yet for some reaason, I still haven't finished The Matrix trilogy unfortunately haha! My dad has been telling me to though! <3

  25. Oh sweetie i think it is the new denim , i have been looking at so many leather outfits and this fall/winter i believe it will take over the style scene. I watched Matrix a long time ago and yes the outfit worn by Keanu Reeves and his gang were so cool , i enjoyed the movie and the action packed in it . Now to your outfit , i really wish i could grab those heels from my screen as i have not stopped staring at your pictures since i opened up your link , Damn ,you look hot and fiesty ,i love the look!

  58. Beautiful my dear friend!! (as always!) Leather certainly is the new denim. Remember when people wearing jeans was seen as crude and low-class? It's amazing to think how upscale it has become. Similarly, how leather once relegated only for jackets, shoes, bags and other outwear pieces has now made it's way into to tops and bottoms. I am personally in love with it, and therefore in love with this post!

    I love leather. When I make my jewellery, I mostly use faux leather because real leather requires special tools, but I do recycle leather when I get the chace. Anyhow, I loved Matrix too!

    You look stunningly beautiful dear..Those pants are amazing!!!!..I think there is something very fierce and powerful about leather.

    You look gorgeous as always! So.. how are your kicking skills in those strappy heels? Could you give Trinity a run for her money? ;-)

That's why I love blogging, you can share any style and inspiration which you wouldn't wear otherwise on the street (especially on the streets of my little city).

  98. For me leather is even more than denim. It can be versatile and unusual, non-standard and just elegant and traditional. The same thing can be different and I love wearing leather always and everywhere. For it will never go out of style!
