Another weekend has come to an end and we are once again forced to get through another 5 days until the next one.
Helping me get back into the work groove is the Yves Saint Laurent Pre Fall campaign.
“Hedi Slimane knows what he likes – clean lines, sharp cuts and a heavy dose of black and white. The famed designer / photographer also has an impeccable eye for beauty, so when Slimane selects a beauty to front his campaign the fashion world takes notice. American beauty Grace Hartzel stars in Saint Laurent Paris‘ pre-fall ads expertly conveying the sensuality and insouciant chic that the label has come to represent. Hartzel captures the vibe so well that in addition to being the face of pre-fall, Slimane enlisted her for the line’s permanent collection ads too. ” – Models.com This campaign has it all from casual couture to glamours evening chic.

Leather is my favorite material and I am known to top off the majority of my looks with one of my many trusty leather jackets… no matter the season. However, I am also a fan of diversifying your leather collection to more than just black. Once you have all the basic pieces in black, jacket, skirt, pants, vest… feel free to invest in another neutral colored leather piece.
