Fall/Winter 2011-2012 will showcase pieces created for the LOVE of LEATHER; incorporating elements of the backstage rock and roll lifestyle, seductive boudoir, and darkly adventurous forests. Both men’s and women’s collections will see a continued commitment from the DANIER brand in creating garments that will reinvent your wardrobe each season. Intriguing details from zippers, studs and chains, to lace and ruffles, to shearling trims create must have pieces, for looks that are set to impress.
