Leather bedecked the runways this season; fall collections from Anthony Vaccarello, Cédric Charlier and Trussardi were teeming with leather jackets, leather tops and even leather dresses. It falls right in line with the enduring military trend. “From the retail shops in Europe to the fashion runways in New York, the military look is definitely still hot!” says Joy Nelson, creative design representative at Burk’s Bay (asi/74600).
She advocates that leather items make ideal employee gifts. “There is no better way to reward a valued employee who has met requested sales goals, a specific service level or a safety target than with the gift of leather apparel,” Nelson says. “A leather jacket offers tremendous value and will be appreciated well after the recognition event is over.”
