After many a nod of approval during the Mackage F/W show in Toronto, I decided I wouldn’t… couldn’t, wait for the collection to hit retailers, so I went out on a limb and WERQ’T it.
I’ve been ever vigilant whilst browsing through stores and it finally paid off when I stumbled on J Brand’s half leather, half denim pants. Frankly, I feel as though this look was mislabeled and stuck in the womenswear category for far too long. Thanks to designers like Balmain, Givenchy and now Mackage, these semi leather jegging’s or meggings (I suppose) have started to trend and find their way into men’s contemporary (Yay!).
While I wouldn’t do this look as an every day’er, it’s great to bust out for the times when you’re feeling the need for a dark, refined rocker aura. So as not go too far down the rabbit hole, I opted for a waxed denim coat in place of a leather. The coat along with the sleek Prada boots softened the overall vibe and kept it from going biker.
To my delight I bumped into Jeanne Beker, one of my favorite fashion icon’s and got a quick photo with her.
