An essential part of any wardrobe, the versatility of the biker jacket ensures it’s a failsafe
investment. This timeless classic is back in a big way, from feminine to full on tough, here’s 3 ways to wear your leather this season.
As seen at Gucci and Louis Vuitton, incoorporating embelishment gives heavy leather a bright and seasonal uplift. Alternatively, simply team short dresses, silk blouses and neckties in fun, floral prints. Take inspiration directly from Gucci’s golden girl and accessorise with a beret and oversized glasses for a more modern look.
Rock’ n’ Roll
This summer, Hedi Slimane took the biker jacket back to it’s core at Saint Laurent. Slightly oversized and simply teamed with a short slip dress and wellington style boots makes for that perfect amount of dishevelled elegance. Aka Kate Moss at Glastonbury circa 2005.
