A good leathering!

Could anything be more classic than the black leather jacket? Evidently Stuart Vevers thinks not - he's created twenty-odd of them (alongside a pair of second-skin trousers and a skintight skirt or two) as his latest offering for Loewe. The collection has been titled 'Leather Icons' and the moniker fits like a (kidskin) glove, utilising shearling and finest nappa to create a clutch of covetable outerwear pieces. And, for the first time, these pieces will be available in the UK - Harrods is the exclusive stockist of the collection, which graces rails in June. What will I be rifling the rails in search of? The perfect Perfecto, a sleek leather trench, a buckled sheepskin overcoat as soft and malleable as a dressing-gown and a classic calfskin blazer. Just to show how good they would all look on me, Loewe have also produced a broadsheet-sized newspaper-style look-book with the collection styled by Katie Grand on the disparate likes of Tricia Ronane, Simon Peritone and Eleonora Bose.
