Leather jackets are back. After many years over which the leather jacket manifested itself as an item sported only by unkempt rogue traders and balding men hankering after their youth, it has been propelled to the forefront of autumn fashion. In truth, with the inadequate display of sunshine this summer, leather jackets remedy the nation’s outcry at requiring premature winter attire.
It’s pure transitional season perfection. Light enough to bear the odd outbursts of sun but snug enough to keep out the crisp, autumn air.
The ultimate leather jacket can be seen at Balenciaga, renowned for its dominatrix inspired designs this season, you can guarantee this piece will be a favourite amongst the fashion show front row-ers. This leather jacket fascination will undoubtedly infect the high street and many stores already feature their own take on the leather jacket from cropped and studded to true bomber jacket style. In particular, Topshop boast a versatile collection of the classic style.
