Leather isn't usually a fabric that makes its way into spring/summer collections, however, in 2019, leather shirts are going to be a key item along with linen dresses and cycling shorts. In 2018, many of us started dressing like Texan natives in cowboy boots and double denim, and the Western trend is continuing well into 2019. Designers including Isabel Marant, Nanushka, Victoria Beckham and Ganni have been bringing leather shirt back, and high-street brands are following suit as Warehouse and Uterqüe already have amazing leather button-down shirts.
Nanushka's croc-stamped leather shirts have proved popular with the Instagram set, and they are all made using vegan leathers. "The vegan leather we are using isn't just buttery soft, but it's also sustainable because it completely cuts out the most toxic part: the tanning process," explains Sandra Sandor, founder and creative director of Nanushka. "I find it important that we make our clothes long lasting and find new methods to reuse them. That's why I always try to take the most care with all my pieces."
