Leather Essentials

At Nique we believe in creating the ultimate wardrobe essentials - investment items that are designed and made to last.
Our black leather capsule illustrates this perfectly made from butter-soft lamb Nappa Leather - specifically chosen for the properties listed below.                                                                                                                                                            
Properties of Nappa Leather
  1. The leather is very soft and pliable. It is not hard like other leathers and does not crease.
  2. The leather is tough and durable in spite of being soft. It is not easily spoiled.
  3. The leather has an intact top-grain. Hence, it is more "breathable" and does not retain moisture.
  4. The leather often develops a patina over the years that adds to its aesthetics.


The collection features the Matsuko Leather Biker Jacket as the hero item - when designing this this biker jacket our mission was to create a timeless essential that epitomises the Nique handwriting with every detail carefully considered - such as all the zips are matt black metal giving a sophisticated finish. The back of the jacket features an action back detail at the shoulders and a shaped band that curves with your back authentic design detailing.                                                      
The softness of the leather makes this jacket the perfect layering essential in your wardrobe adding edge to your outfit.                                                                         
Wear over the Ayana Dress to contrast the soft Japanese florals, dress up your T shirt and jeans look and our favourite wear back to the Yoshiko skirt recreating the nineties minimalist mood.                                                                                           
The A line Yoshiko Black Leather Skirt features a asymmetrical panel with an angled hem detail that dips below your knee. 


Wear this to work paired with the Manami pinstripe jacket and our perfect Rinji cotton modal Tee or with softest Hideko cashmere knit for the perfect weekend look.                                                                                                                           

The leather skirt is such an key item that we also designed an alternative silhouette - the Kazue A line mini skirt. This mini skirt has flattering side panels with matt black exposed zip pockets and a CB zip opening.



With minis we like to style them with oversized tops such as the Kano Tee, Fumiko knit or for a sleek sophisticated mood back with the Kimi turtleneck.

Our statement item in the collection is the bestselling Akari top - the versatile wrap top perfect as a layering item by day and at night on its own. 

The feature dipped hem echoes the styling of the Yoshiko skirt and worn together these give a statement dress look. 

The adjustable belt is slotted through the side seam and is adjusted with our matt black signature rectangle D rings.
