I never thought I would have a leather jacket hanging up in my wardrobe, never mind the fact that it is currently my most beloved item in there. Perhaps, it was all those Rick Owens' jackets or maybe Susie Bubble's scrumptious cropped version or maybe just my cliched image of the 'rock chick' that I often cling to, to make up for the fact that alas, that will never actually be me. Regardless, it's love - I've got a feeling we're going to have a lot of good times together.
I'm not so sure why I have a teddy girl tossed into this collage. I do realise the Teddy Boy subculture and the Rocker subculture, to which the leather jacket is traditionally associated with are too entirely separate groups. She just looks like a rebel. Buttoned up shirts are an obsession of mine too.
Indeed, I seem to be playing quite the love - struck one. Constantly drifting off into some daydream..involving me and my beloved, of course.. counting down the days until I can try it out with a girly pink dress or with a mid - night blue sequined top. And that's exactly the thing, its an item that can go with just about everything. I cannot help, but be smug in my conversion! I bet you're just waiting for that typical leather jacket description cliche too: "buttery leather", but it really is made of such soft, delicious material!Of course I quite like it in its more traditional 50s rocker style form, as seen in my attempt below. Just ignore all those lame "Where's the motorbike?" jokes.
Two of my favourite style obsessions - Paul Weller and Debbie Harry - both seen here in leather jackets. Of course punk and leather go hand in hand as The Clash decked out in leather here would prove.
Sorry for the hiatus, will catch up on comments shortly. - Kat x
