Now at the height of fashion – Leather!
Luxury leisure accessories are shaping the fashion industry. Leather hats, bags and belts are no longer simply just accessories but must have designer items. There are a lot of places that sell leatherette accessories but we aren’t talking about those. We are talking about the real McCoy – leather that smells as good as it feels, leather that lasts longer than most friendships, leather that oozes sophistication and will be with you through thick and thin.
Not just any old leather hats; Wombat Hats!
For a long time, hats were seen as a bold fashion statement, predominantly as a way of protection from the sun’s rays or as a wedding accessory. But they are making a comeback and seen in everyday life, with celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, once voted ‘hat wearer of the year’, Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher all happy to be photographed in fashion statement hats. They are now viewed as a welcome every day accompaniment, the perfect complement to any outfit. Leather hats are very on-trend, with this luxurious natural fabric being not only warm but also hard wearing.
One of the most fashionable leathers at the moment is Wombat leather. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s inspired by the outback of Australia. Wombat leather is made from the highest grade cattle hide ensuring items are not only luxurious but extremely comfortable and durable. It is a great fashion accessory for those with adventure in their soul. Wombat leather hats make you look wildly alluring and up to date with modern trend; they are a must have style statement.

Leather for men?
The attitude towards men carrying bags has changed dramatically over the last decade. Gone are the days that the only bags men could be seen with were gym bags or macho rucksacks. ‘Man bags’ used to be deemed very uncool, ridiculed and not necessary. Attitudes are now very different. It is now perfectly acceptable, and normal for men to carry a variety of bags. In fact, men’s purses or ‘murses’ as they are now known as, are a hot trend to be seen within the covers of vogue and on the catwalks of London, New York and Japan.
Bags and purses for men are now seen to be stylishly refined and the new must have fashion statement. Celebrities such as Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Cristiano Ronaldo are all seen to be sporting the look. Wombat leather men’s bags are designed for this trend, and are now seen as cutting edge, modern and extremely desirable.
For example, this waxed canvas leather duffle bag is a favourite weekend bag for an easy escape. A timeless piece that you will want to use again and again as it’s the perfect size to carry and is resilient and impressive in its role.
Trends and shifts in fashion are constantly evolving The leather jacket will always be a timeless piece of statement fashion as will Wombat hats and leather bags for their ability to look both contemporary and ageless.
