Fashion trend: The biker leather jacket will be more versatile than ever in autumn 2020
The biker leather jacket is a classic, nevertheless it comes season after season with new fashionable details. And that for around 100 years – she was born in New York in the Roaring Twenties. Although the pilots already wore a warm, robust leather jacket in World War I, it was the New York brothers Schott who gave the biker jacket an asymmetrical zipper instead of buttons, including a belt and a shortened length. It quickly became the symbol of motorcyclists. No other jacket back then stood for rebellion and masculinity. The biker leather jacket reached its first fashionable peak when Marlon Brando wore it in the early 1950s in the film “The Wild One”. Later she became a cult object with rockers and punks, as well as with stars and top models like Madonna, Cindy Crawford or Kate Moss.
Yves Saint Laurent was the first designer to present a leather biker jacket on the catwalk. That was in 1960. For the coming autumn / winter 2020/21 the classic jacket is now more versatile than ever as a fashion trend: Louis Vuitton, for example, adorns it with colorful rivets, paisley patterns and lacing below the shoulders. What remains is their abbreviated form and rebellious coolness.
At Valentino, the biker leather jacket is a fashion trend with a shiny patent leather finish and teddy fur on the collar. A better fashion partner for midi skirts and Boots does not exist in autumn. The many additional layers of knit meanwhile fit perfectly under the black oversize motorcycle jacket by Alberta Ferretti in the cold season. The contrast between the dropped shoulders, the voluminous sleeves and the tightly belted waist is particularly beautiful. And if you can’t decide between a leather and a denim jacket, please note the look below by Alberta Ferretti: Here, both jackets are worn in one gelayered. A good onion look for cold, uncomfortable autumn days.
Instead of black: Cognac gives the biker leather jacket an extra dose of chic as a fashion trend
Black is always possible with a biker leather jacket. A model in warm cognac, on the other hand, exudes more chic than rock’n’roll. The so-called Toffee Tones are omnipresent in the autumn / winter 2020/21 collections anyway and the Italian fashion houses Fendi and Salvatore Ferragamo prove how elegant and soft a cognac biker jacket looks. A little rebellion like in the 1950s still resonates with the new models of the fashion trend, of course – especially if you take a role model on the catwalks and rely on the complete leather look.
