Here is the latest piece of clothes waffle for The Leeds Guide
If you have any sense of common decency, or failing that a suceptibility to thrush, then don’t, for the love of sweet holy basil, wear a leather catsuit this season. Or leather shorts. Or leather trouers.
Chloe Sevigny is a liar and a fool. Angelina Jolie is a masochist. Rose McGowan willingly let Marilyn Manson take her up the gothic highway. These women are cautionary tales, not fashion icons.
However, if you will insist on wearing leather this season, and judging by the squeaking catwalks of London Fashion Week you will, then try and keep it above the waist. ‘Leather’ may sound like ‘pleasure’, but insulated nether regions are nobody’s treat.
Apparently, the trick to leather jackets this season is to wear them small, tight, and smart-casual. Which means, with a t-shirt and pencil skirt or over a body con flowery dress. Personally, I think that’s taking all the fun out of it.
So, this winter I will be wearing my leather jacket with a bare chest, an enormous moustache and several highly offensive tattoos.
