Being A Rebel In The City
One leather biker vest, 6 feathers, 32 bottle caps and countless metal studs. This may be among the craziest ones we've seen yet.| April 19, 2017
Quite often when you have a leather jacket in your hand, your mind automatically imagines it with a t-shirt, seasoned jeans and boots that say “don’t you dare mess with me”. A motorcycle in the background and some wind in your hair if you really want to get into that The Wild One theme. Rarely do you imagine it with a pair of lazy mules or exaggerated ruffles, for instance.
But we’re switching things up, partner. Spring has sprung at last, so we’re giving in to looser and floatier silhouettes that embrace the breeze. Plus, the leather jacket in question is insanely embellished on its own already, so we’re letting it be the main star of the show. It’s got feathers, bottle caps, leather flowers, ball chains – and that’s just what we can see without scrutinising every detail. It’s saying, “Yo, I know I look pretty rad, but like, you know, whatevs.”
We paired it with a simple white shirt, a silky skirt that’s almost cocktail and those same old loafers that you’ve seen here for the umpteenth time (shop it here and here). Extremely simple, totally unfussy.
