The hottest trend at Summer Jam 2013? Leather, duh. En Noir hit the scene less than a year ago, and now the brand is rocked by celebrities everywhere. 2 Chainz wore a studded leather hat, similar to the ones by brands like Stampd LA. Soon, other brands like Fear of God LA popped up, and leather-paneled shirts, pants, and even basketball shorts became a reality.
Before that, LeBron James and D-Wade were spotted at All-Star Weekend wearing matching black leather pants. But it's not just about black—Drake hit the red carpet in bright red leather pants. Is it practical? Definitely not, but it's also not accessible—these skins cost some serious dough. Perhaps the high price of admission is what keeps celebrities and dudes with the cash flow buying into the club. But is there any staying power in leather T-shirts?
