The short, tight, zipped-up leather moto look that dominated Maxime Simoens’ spring runway has been circulating en masse at the contemporary level, and even further down the fashion food chain for some time now.

Simoens is up at the top of the design pyramid, with LVMH investment, yet he did little to elevate or differentiate his version of sporty, sexy aggression. It was fueled by a commitment to graphic contrasts — combinations of white, silver, black and an occasional flash of teal in paneled leather with zipper accents around pockets, sleeves and the curves of a tight skirt. Two pairs of pants could be zipped on or off at various points up and down the leg.
