The classic biker jacket has become the ultimate sartorial symbol of rebellion. The revolution started back in the fifties, led by the likes of Marlon Brando and James Dean. Over the years, the trend has been endlessly reinterpreted from punk to grunge, and this season is no exception.
Luxurious layers play with rich textures and tonal hues, creating the perfect protection against the elements.
Taking inspiration from the Autumn Winter 13-14 Fashion Show, structured shapes contrast against soft, matted woollens. Sleeveless, long-length jackets give way to chunky knit jumpers. Rich bouclé adds femininity to an oversized, crew neck coat. Attention to detail is essential: exposed zips and delicate studded detailing add a strong touch to a tailored cut. Team with a mini dress or a pair of printed trousers for maximum impact without compromising on comfort.
