Understated Leather is the example of a perfect pairing of talented minds and crafty hands.

Husband and wife team Jen and Josh, have built their brand around the idea of individuality. The Australian/Texan duo, craft hand made and up-cycled, vintage pieces that make you want to grab a guitar, kick up some dirt and ride into the Texas sunset on a motorcycle wearing nothing but a leather jacket. Well, looking at their newest campaign “Don’t Mess With Texas” that’s exactly what their wafty model Anna Herrin did.

The Understated Leather collection features leather jackets with metal hardware, laboriously pieced together by hand, denim jackets with engraved leather patches, fringed suede vests, engraved leather wallets and clutches and a completely custom made service.

In a world where fast fashion is ruling the roost, where clothing is produced in the tens of thousands, it’s more than a breath of fresh air seeing a label producing sustainable, ethical, good old fashioned hand made product.

With a “Go your own way” attitude, there is nothing standing in the way of this duo and the world other than global shipping. And they do that too.

LEONARD DOUBLE DENIM FLORAL MODEL SPRING SUMMER 2015 FASHION WEEK


Denim to me is like coffee. Long black, Latte, Cappuccino, Espresso? All I heard just then was caffeine, and i’ll take that anyway it comes. When it comes to denim, i’m like a junkie in a crack house, anything goes. Regular washed, straight leg, boyfriend jean, printed, acid washed, patch-worked, doubled, tripled or quadrupled, seriously, just give it to me.

Here are some of my favourite denim looks from Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.

You’re welcome.

DENIM DAZE


RAG AND BONE DENIM CHAMBRAY JUMPSUIT PLAYSUIT ROMPER PUPPY MOSAIC WALL


It’s Friday! The laziest day of the work week.

Who wants to think about putting on more than one item of clothing on a Friday? No one. Unless you’re a guy.

That’s why today, I settled on my favourite hybrid that is, the Denim Onsie. Cool enough to work with the warm Spring sun, long sleeves to combat the still slightly icy wind and to top it off, it’s  DENIM.

Amazing.

So with the challenge of working out my wardrobe well accomplished, I am now faced with another more pressing natter. Going to the bathroom.

Challenge accepted.

 Day 5

What better way to end a week in denim, than by doubling it.

After the week that i’ve had, there’s not much else to say today other than TGIF.

Day 4

After baggying it out yesterday in my BFs it only felt right to step into or should I say shimmy into my tight black jeans. Who am I kidding, they’re definitely jeggings.

As much as I hate the idea of a pair of leggings masquerading as a pair of jeans, these are a no brainer to pull on. Especially when I’m in a flustered rush in the morning, because I happened to hit snooze button one too many times. We’ve all been there, warm, comfortable and blissfully unaware that in exactly 9 minutes you will be thrown into a world of panic when you realise you’re meant the be in the office opening emails in exactly 35mins.

In times like this, I’m glad that 80% of my wardrobe is black. By completely limiting my colour choices over the years, I’ve pretty much guaranteed myself a 90% hit rate of not looking awful.

Black tee, tick. Black blazer, tick. Black jeans… with an elasticised waistband? DOUBLE TICK.

NB. My shoes are glowing orbs of Nike goodness in the photos so if you actually want to see what they look like, here they are taking their first bright white steps in the sunny seaside town of Monterey, CA while I was on a road trip from LA to SF up the Pacific Coast Highway. They’ve seen some shit.

Day 3

Wednesday, otherwise known as hump day. The day that to some signifies the last half of the week and to others solidifies the fact that IT’S ONLY WEDNESDAY?!

For me, it’s a slow steady process before I truly cross the hump.

When I woke up today I was tired, grumpy and wanted nothing more than to pull my track pants on. As I stared blankly at my wardrobe, my eyes on my clothes but my mind firmly still on my sweats, I settled on the next best thing. My baggiest of baggy boyfriend jeans. There’s something amazingly comforting about being able to pull a pair of jeans on without undoing the fly. As I settled into baggy, unrestricted, denimy glory, I immediately began to see the glimmer of Friday afternoon in the distance, through my sleepy eyes.

There’s not many items of clothing that can be as comfortable as your pjs but still completely socially acceptable office attire. I threw on a loose t-shirt, an oversized long blazer and my most comfortable heels and I was out the door, ready and invigorated to take on the day.

And then I remember, It’s only WEDNESDAY…
