Leather Store in Denver Highlights Designers That Have Done it Right

October 11, 2017

Leather is a classic material that is used by fashion designers in practically every season. Some designers are able to create breathtaking leather looks, while others truly miss the mark. As the leading leather store in Denver, we know when a designer has completely nailed the leather trend. Here’s a look at some of the designers who have done it right:

The Row

The Row is a high-end fashion label that focuses on creating luxurious wardrobe staples, such as plain white t-shirts and form-fitting dresses. Almost every season, The Row introduces a new take on the leather dress, and this year was no exception. This season’s dress is form-fitting and hits right below the knee, so it’s appropriate for your personal and professional wardrobe. This little black dress also has a hidden zipper in the back that doesn’t distract from the simplicity of the design. Overall, the designers at The Row were able to create the perfect leather dress for every occasion.


Frame is a denim company, but they have recently branched out and included leather and other materials in their designs. One of their most popular designs is a shiny leather mini skirt with a slight A-line silhouette that falls to the mid-thigh. The shine on this leather differentiates this skirt from the dozens of other leather mini skirts on the market. Plus, the designers have managed to cut this skirt perfectly so it doesn’t sit too close to the body, but also doesn’t have an extreme A-line shape. Learn about the A-line dress definition.


Theory is known for using high-end fabrics such as leather and suede, so it’s no surprise that they have a number of leather jackets in their most recent collection. Theory creates garments for both men and women, and leather jackets are available for both genders. Although some of the pieces are traditional bomber-style jackets, there are a few unique items that are definitely showstoppers. For example, one of the women’s leather jackets is designed with an incredibly soft and lightweight lamb leather that hangs off of the body similar to an open cardigan. The relaxed fit of this jacket makes it appropriate for day or evening, and since it’s a bit lighter than other styles, you can probably get more use of it throughout the year.

Helmut Lang

Many people think of leather as a heavy duty material. However, Helmut Lang has designed a leather spaghetti strap tank top that proves that it can also be a lightweight summer fabric. This piece, which is made out of soft lamb leather, is cut close to the body and works well with a classic pair of slim fit dark jeans.
