Danier Leather - spring/summer 2006

Danier brought their spring-summer 2006 leather finery to an eager outdoor audience at Montreal’s Jaguar Fashion and Design Festival.

Leather can be light, as Danier demonstrates with the women’s zip-up jacket in peacock blue (a colour that was splashed all over the runways this season). Most of these snappy jackets have straight, typically male cuts. Not even the racing stripes, however, can detract from their inherent femininity. Flaunting the softer side of leather, a dusty pink suede jacket with flared sleeves is paired with a matching skirt. The suede lilac dress has gentle pleats that fall just above the knee. Frilly skirts contrast sprightly with the streamlining, and flashes of orange, yellow and green kick pastel butt.

The men’s leather blazer has a rough cowboy finish, while the white snap-collar jacket has shoulder patches that make for a decidedly biker look. For both men and women, there’s sleek and sinister black in a variety of separates.
