Leather leggings were the hot ticket item the other night at Elise Overland at Arcade Boutique, retailing for $1,400; Mary-Kate and Ashley's high-end label The Row were offering a pair for $1,700 this season; and Rihanna was rocking Helmut Lang's cut out leather leggings on stage this week, which go for $830. Just so happens that the Helmut Lang numbers are on sale right now for 60% off at its Melrose boutique—$332 before tax—which is still a pretty penny but also a pretty good deal. [RackedWire]
