Illustrated leather


For fall, firm favorite McQ by Alexander McQueen has teamed up with Japanese manga artist Yoshiyasu Tamura for a collection of punchy, black and white, comic strip inspired pieces. The collaboration offers a whole series of all-over manga prints, but a marriage of a classic biker and illustrated bad-girl patches convinced me that there is still room for another leather jacket in my wardrobe. This one will for sure not be outplayed any time soon, come what may swanky new leathers. So, to not look too much like I’m about to ride off, the prettiest satin peplum on the market and, wait for it, the most perfect shoe man ever made; Let’s finally welcome the legendary ‘So Kate.’ My feet are crying bloody, but very happy tears.
