leave a comment »


Most women wouldn’t go near blue leather for a social event, but unless of course you are ex-tennis star , Boris Becker’s, first wife,  Barbara Becker (pictured in the centre). She wore a stunning blue, leather military dress from Michael Hoban’s North Beach Leather, when she attended the Webster Grand Opening (July 2009). A vintage hit! Other stunning versions of the blue leather collection below,  seen on model Tatjana Patiz’s Cosmopolitan cover (May, 1987) and another from an ebay listing.

Yves Saint Laurent’s 1995 runway hit, the Mondrian dress (below) has been featured in many  styles over the years,  but I was pleasantly surprised to stumble on a leather version. A first, by one of my favorite designers Michael Hoban’s North Beach Leather. NBL (above)  minimalistic take on the  classic YSL dress by only using 2 color palettes and signature leather.
