Daily Crush: Leather and Wool Jacket by Carven
By James Kim
Picked fresh off the A/W 2014 runway, Carven has released select pieces from its ready-to-wear collection via the line's e-commerce platform. From the selection available on their website, our personal favorite is the leather and wool jacket seen above.
The duality of the luxurious wool and the grungy leather makes this look a super chic, yet understated fashion statement. Just a hint of leather applique can transform a conventional wool jacket into something interesting by giving it added texture that complements the quality of the fabric paired with the leather. The black-on-black ensemble tones down the luster of the leather without detracting from the stand-out quality of having leather sleeves.
Everything from the material to the color makes this jacket a wearable outerwear piece that is easy to dress up or down and pair with a louder print, for a bolder statement, or softer patterns, for a minimalist edge.
