Benjamin Kanarek captures Hye Seung and Jin Zhou in Spring-Summer 2013 “Tender Skin” Trend for VOGUE China, February 2013.

Leather for Spring Summer 2013 gets rid of its rock and punk influence to bring a modern, fresh and soft approach in tender and muted tonalities lensed in the breathtaking Royale Mandarin Suite and its wonderful panoramic views of Paris.

Stylist, Marine Braunchsvig proposes an interpretation of the leather trend with earth colors in suede for a Loewe jacket and beige shorts with its pocket belt in brown suede by Hermès. A delicate neutral light brown dress by Mulberry underlined with brighter Fendi shoes and Hermès envelop bag. Under a blue influence with baby blue baby doll dress by Balenciaga and a bicker suede jacket in pale blue by Acné and slim cut for metallic blue and emerald leather raincoat by Burberry a must of the season. Ending with a baby pink bicker jacket by Balmain.
