Spring Leather is Perfectly Perforated

Perforated leather for spring

Now that we're in the lamb's share of April, the natural inclination is to abandon leather for lighter fabricsto trade in patent booties for espadrilles, a calfskin motorcycle jacket for a cotton trench. Not this year, though! Perforated leather is everywhere, and the lightened-up look can carry you straight through summer.

Clockwise from top left:

  1. The perforated heels are so cute! I imagine they allow your feet to breathe a little.

  2. I think you have to go full leather though. The problem if you go cheap and cheerful with this is… you'll sweat a lot.

  3. Very true, Arash! There's nothing worse than pleather in the summer.
