The motorcycle jacket has definitely been around for awhile now and has pretty much lost all pretense of edge. Which is why I like these variations that play with alternatives to the “I’m with the band” look.
I normally avoid the Highline park on the weekend because it’s so crowded with tourists it makes it impossible to walk. But it was so beautiful this past weekend I couldn’t help but venture onto it. And I’m glad I did because I saw Kate who was wearing a nice mix of girlie (white cotton blouse, braids) and cool (oxblood boots, black leather jacket) and was a standout in a sea of jeans.
I get all excited when people wear prints and color because New Yorkers are known for wearing all black all the time. But I can get excited about all black too. (maybe I’m just excitable?) Anyways when you look this stylish why not just make it a uniform?
She’s looking oh-so-Laurent and he is safely cool in narrow but not skinny pants and a classic moto jacket. And I’m a wee bit hungover from my birthday soiree so I’ll let the picture do the talking today. xo
I was taken with Andrej Pejic’s leather jacket at an event recently. The chains and studs are like an update or re-think to punk…speaking of which I’m already looking forward to the Met’s upcoming exhibit Punk: from Chaos to Couture which doesn’t even open until May.
There’s something about these girls that feels vintage New York to me. Yes, this photo is from 2012 but if someone said it was from 2002 or ’92 or somewhere mid ’80s and I didn’t look too closely I’d believe it. Candy colored hair, black, fur or fake fur, motorcycle jackets, leather cap, big earrings…these are the things that you’ll see at night in NYC no matter the era.
I see printed pants and jeans on all my favorite online stores but I’m not sure they’re something I can get behind for myself. But when I see someone pulling them off successfully like her, it makes me rethink it. I also love the top knot which I’ve been seeing everywhere downtown.
