Durable and timeless, leather is a versatile material that can be used across a range of fashion, accessories, and homewares. Check out our edit of some of the best leather pieces that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come…
Common Projects – Original Achilles
Available in a range of colourways, the Common Projects Original Achilles is an all time classic. Though we find it difficult to look past the sleek all white pair, this black and white version is equally as excellent. Made from a soft nappa calf leather, the sneakers sport a minimalist and clean look. Their only embellishment is the signature gold serial numbers debossed on the side.

In an elegant tan colour, Hunting For George’s Leather Cushion will make an excellent addition to your couch or bed. It’s made from soft leather and comes with a comfortable 100% feather cushion inner. Over time, the leather becomes textured and develops unique markings that make it a more personal piece. The cushion is a nice way to elevate the look of your place.
Kangaroo leather is a great alternative to regular calf leather. Not only is it a more sustainable option, but it’s actually more hardy too. Moreover, the leather ages beautifully, becoming softer and developing a unique look with natural markings. Sydney brand Hentley craft all their pieces from kangaroo leather. Their Florence Notebook Wallet has a slim silhouette and can hold your cards and cash, as well as a small notebook and pen.
When you wear something every day, you need it to be of a super high quality. That’s why the Tanner Goods Standard Belt is a good choice if you wear a belt daily. It’s handmade from a thick, durable vegetable tanned leather. The belt is available in a couple of different colourways, but one of our favourites is the cobalt and copper one. It’s a refined and modern piece from the Portland brand.
With a refined and professional look, the Toffee Slim Leather Sleeve is an essential for your laptop or documents. It’s crafted from a naturally milled leather that looks and feels premium. The corner zip shape allows for easy access to your gear, and the zip itself is high-quality YKK. A padded interior will keep your laptop safe and protected, plus there’s also space for your phone or some cards too.
Taking a very utilitarian approach to design, Instrmnt created their 01 watch keeping the principle of functionality at top of mind. Its features include a Swiss Ronda 585 3H movement, sapphire crystal glass, PVD coated 40mm steel casing, and an Italian leather strap. With a 5 ATM water resistance, it’s an all-round ideal choice for daily wear. Moreover, thanks to its minimalist look, the watch can be easily styled with different outfits.
Available in either full grain leather or bullhide leather, Killspencer’s Coaster Set is a great way to enhance your desk or home. Both materials offer a very elegant look, with the full grain appearing more textured and natural. The bullhide leather is smooth and thicker, and it has a more refined appearance. The edges of each piece is handpainted, and the brand’s logo is stamped on the bottom.
Run out of floor or shelf space for your indoor plants? There might still be some unmined territory on your ceiling! Zakkia’s leather Plant Hanger makes it easy to suspend your plants in a super elegant way. The strong straps are adjustable so you can fit them around different pots, and the loop at the end allows it to be hung easily. The plant hanger is available in either black or brown.
A sophisticated choice of bag for the gym, weekend away, or just for the office. Royal Republiq’s Supreme Day Bag features different carry options, including dual haul handles and a shoulder strap. It offers multiple internal pockets for organisation and easy access to your essentials too. The 100% leather construction and YKK zips make this bag a durable and hardy choice.
The Triumph & Disaster Field Kit is the perfect companion for travel. It offers ample storage for your toiletries, or you could even use it to conveniently house your cables and chargers. The kit features multiple pockets and compartments, plus a brass hook at the top that allows you to hang it up easily. When rolled up, the kit compactly fits into your bag, secured with a nice little leather strap.
This collaborative pair of slides by Assembly Label and St Agni is the ideal pair to get your feet into this summer. They offer a premium and distinct look, while remaining casual and comfortable. The slides are easily styled with shorts, boardies, or jeans.

Moreover, it’s super comfortable too.
The A.P.C. Leather Bifold Wallet is a premium piece with a refined design. It’s a great choice if you want to slim down your wallet, but aren’t prepared to lose too much card and cash space. The piece is made from a smooth and soft vegetable tanned leather, branded with a subtle embossed logo on the back. It can comfortably hold notes, has six card slots, and two internal pockets.
The distinct scent of leather has been captured and bottled by Truefitt & Hill, who have actually been recognised to be the oldest barbershop in the world. Dating back to 1805, these guys know what they’re doing when it comes to looking and smelling good. They’ve created the Spanish Leather cologne; a fragrance that’s spicy and woody and very masculine. It’s a subtle scent, but ideal for evenings or special occasions.
