Fashion has a funny ability of being able to look to the future and look back to the past at the same time. We may all like to look a little retro (it comes from our love of dressing-up) but that doesn’t mean that you want to look as though you’re lost on the way to a 70s themed fancy dress party. Whilst retrogazing back to the 70’s, pulling back some of the best references (Gucci, Etro, Saint Laurent SS15 shows anyone?), this season couldn’t resist reviving one of the most popular and versatile fabrics from that decade: suede.
The suede trend is SS15’s answer to old boring leather. So smooth and shiny is out: soft, downy fuzziness is in. If you find yourself residing in the Minimalism fashion tribe this season, suede will strip away some of the harsher elements of this trend and add some soft, luxe texture to your look.
Because most of us can only dream of owning a Gucci suede belted coat, I’ve compiled a list of the high streets best suede items below. Mango will be your go-to store for anything suede this season.
