Allow us to introduce you to West 14th; based in Sydney, inspired by New York and featuring the most luxurious, buttery soft leather you’ll come across. Every garment tells a story. It gives you energy and directs your future.

West 14th’s debut AW13 collection is awash with chic, crisp monochromes with shearling sourced from Italy and Iceland, buttery soft drum dye leather from China and supple cowhide from Japan. The minimalist colour palette highlights the quality craftsmanship, clean cuts and attention to detail that have been invested in each piece. Featuring structured motor jackets with exaggerated zips, sleek draped leather trench coats, luxe shearling jackets and vests as well as tran-seasonal leather short and shift dresses, the ‘Concrete Views’ collection epitomises effortless New York style and is perfect for a gentle Australian winter.

A highlight of the collection is the Madison Blazer in a luxe black leather. This piece combines the classic, timeless and oh-so elegant shape of a traditional longline blazer with the direction and trendiness of a texture not usually used to create such a silhouette.

The collection puts an emphasis on mid-weight pieces and adaptable outwear, giving a nod to our temperate Down Under climate and remaining extremely relevant for this season.

Marking their first foray into ready-to-wear, West 14th’s AW13 collection is a tight edit of wardrobe staples; a series of must-haves in luxurious second-skin fabrics.
