Mixed Media Leather and Lace

Mixed Media Leather and Lace

Leather and lace are always a popular fall combination.  As much as I enjoy mixing leather and lace separates, I am loving the mixed media look of leather and lace this fall.  There is something interesting about the dichotomy of the delicate, ultra femininity of lace and the tougher, more rugged leather being combined into one garment.  Could it be that good girl/bad girl vibe?  We are seeing lace sleeves on leather tops, leather sleeves on lace shirts, lace cutouts in leatherlike leggings, half leather / half lace dresses, and lace laser cut leather...just to name a few.   Take a look at some inspiration and a few of my in store favorites... 

Inspiration...

Mulberry F/W 2012
Erdem F/W 2012
Christopher Kane F/W 2012



Kristen Bell

Ashley Greene

My Picks to Purchase...

Bailey 44 lace with leather peplum top / bloomingdales.com    ($158)

Zoë Jordan burgundy leather and lace Margaret dress    (L695)

Zara leather and lace dress   ($189)


Have you tried the leather and lace mixed media combo?  I would love to hear your feedback :)

Happy weekend!
Cathy

  42. I love mixed media however..the practical side of me always gets into the way. If you have a piece that has leather on it, it requires professional leather cleaning. They consider the whole piece leather which is often 15x the price of regular dry cleaning...
