    1 - We loved smooth, mat leathers and sueded skins associated with many treatments

    2 - Woven leathers, tweeds, two-tones, mini or maxi geometrics, 70’s or more rustic, ethnic motifs

    3 - Waxed leathers, sophisticated vintage effects

    4 - Metallic effects : old golds, coppers or sequined aquatics

    5 - Lots of patent leathers, shine, transparencies …

    6 - “Vegetation” leathers

    7 - Mat surface effects
    - Light grains all the way to mammoth skins, heavy, supple leathers and astrakhan effects
    - Pebbly, mineral, desert effects, wrinkled dry and mat looks
    - Refined textures that resemble animal skins in light beige and gray

    8 - Perforations, grooves, irregular embossings and mesh sport looks
     
  • Novelties
    - Ornamental floral and vegetation prints, gold prints
    - Liberty prints and faded “brushstroke” effects, “garden” prints
