Since BC (before COVID), the leather coat has been an integral part of most fashion people's uniforms. And like most trends in recent years, it all began with Bottega. Ever since that brown buttery-soft Bottega Veneta style stormed the A/W 20 runway, the love for leather outerwear (be it real, faux or vegan) has increased tenfold. With Prada putting leather coats back on the runway for S/S 22 in oversized styles, we predict they'll only get more popular. Far removed from their previous Buffy the Vampire Slayer comparisons thanks to beautiful tailoring and rich colour palettes—think glossy caramel, chocolate brown, teal and terracotta shades—it's time to try out the investment buy.
