Leather is the New Black. Part One.

I was going to hold out a little longer before posting too much on NYFW, but I cannot wait!  I am gathering so many folders that I have to start sharing immediately. 
As far as "trends" go, let me say the "trend" is very black.  There has been little color in New Black, I mean New York.  Sure it's something par for the course during fall collections, but alas, I love color and color sells. I'll share color soon. 
This little micro-maxi trend is one I cannot ignore.  Leather and long. 
Timo Weiland FW 2012 NYFW. Chocolate brown leather and velvet (is that brown?).

Jen Kao FW 2012 NYFW. Black leather corset dress. 

Cushnie et Ochs FW 2012 NYFW. Black leather. I like that this one has a more casual style.  I use that term loosely. 

Christian Siriano FW 2012 NYFW. Christian always does gorgeous gowns, slightly conservative but sophisticated in their experiementation of texture.  Someone should have worn this at the Grammy's last night.

Catherine Malandrino FW 2012 NYFW. Patent corset top that's either a one-piece romper or palazzo pants.  Either way, daring almost 90s throwback look.  This has the potential to be vulgar, btw. So don't try this look at home.
