Leather Joseph.

London, England

As much as I praise leather, life has never really granted me access to it. Well, actually that would be a lie, as the Eastern European roots call for memories of leather trenches, shoes, bags, carpets, notebooks, knives, and nearly everything else, except beautiful clothing that comes close to the fashion of the new millennium.

Yes, leather is absolutely beautiful, but I’ve never had the opportunity to acquire it, mostly because its price exceeds its charms 10 times, “Hello €4 k Saint Laurent ripped sexiness, or €3k zipped coolness“. As a big appreciator of high quality, those sky prices have always caused me frustration, while the cheaper versions annoyed me, as the price-quality ratio is not worth my attention.

But write this moment down, as finally at 20, I’m officially an owner of my first leather trousers, bought on sale (naturally!). I have a feeling this is only the start of a new, long-lasting relationship.

    Buna Doina,
    Desi am un buget de n ori mai mic ca al tau acelasi moment perfect l-am asteptat si eu. Din fericire la ultima mea excursie in Italia am gasit perechea perfecta de pantaloni din piele de la PINKO la un pret bun. I-am cam purtat zilnic in ultima saptamana! Sunt prea cool!
    Imi place outfitul tau!

    My trousers are linked to the shop I bought them from 😉

  • Doina Ciobanu

    Pinko e tare, sunt happy for you! Cred ca o piesa cu adevarat draguta din piele poate fi (si merita a fi) procurata doar la pret redus 🙂

    Felicitari Doina! Te am vazut in Richmond cind ai facut pozele. Super!

  • These trousers are definitely a leather statement piece ! You went ahead of the “skinny-crowd” with an ultra cool baggy design ! Love it , Doina !

  • Wauw they are so cool! I am also looking for real leather pants, but it’s soooo expensive!


  • Laura

    This is perfection!!

    That’s not leather, it’s a cow’s skin. A cow actually had to die in terrible pain for you to have her skin. It’s not glamorous. It’s pure cruelty.

  • I absolutely love this look! Btw your hair has grown so much.. 🙂

  • sporty chic!

    No offense to the previous comment, but the cow who supposedly died by suffering to make that pants, didn’t. It’s death was certainly caused by the fact that human beings eat cows meal since History. Can we just stay on the fashion spot???? That’s a bit of drama for less.

  • love your style!

  • lovely look!


  • Cool leather pants and the bag is just amazing, love it <3

    Foarte tari tinutele. Chiar mi se pare interesant cum sunt combinate. Am fost si eu intr-o excursie ( cazare in Iasi ) si am combinat cateva tinute mai extravagante…si lumea se uita cam ciudatel. Cred ca trebuie alese foarte bine evenimentele pentru ca nu toate se preteaza la ce vrei tu sa porti. o sa am mai multa grija pe viitor. Frumos articol. 🙂
