The fall lineup at DROMe, with Marianna Rosati at the creative helm, exalted the versatility of leather, with the family-owned Italian factory’s wizardry sometimes blurring the line between what is leather and what is woven or knitted. A prime example: felted wool pieces that morphed into leather on chunky sweaters and coats.

 

Done in muted shades of steel blue, burgundy and gray, the collection offered nods to the Seventies with its fringed ponchos and bell-bottoms and the Eighties via a lean kimono coat worn with big, pleated pants. While not directional, DROMe showed the many ways it’s possible to offer leather — punched, ruched, embossed, coated, crinkled or printed.
