The latest from Gucci is a reinterpretation of the classic biker jacket. Sporting a worn-in aesthetic, it’s leather composition exhibits a unique distressed detailing for added character, merging vintage elements perfectly with its modern craftsmanship of luxurious Italian heavyweight material.
Comprised of a slate blue finish, silver accents are applied for the buttons and zippers for a contrasting touch, a nice alterative to the traditional black versions.
Christian Louboutins aren’t just for the women in your life he makes movers for men too, and they are getting better & better in my opinion. The Fredapoitier loafer is made has black suede uppers, slip-on and features two rows of gunmetal studs along the bottom of the shoe next to a thin midsole red trim, black leather soles and the signature red on the bottom….pretty cool in my opinion.
Cruise has just taken delivery of this badboy….Balmain presents a Full-Grain Leather Biker Jacket from its current seasonal range. Constructed with an untreated full-grain leather that will age elegantly over time, this grandeur moto jacket presents a modern masculine, boxy fit, with epaulettes, zip pockets at the sleeve, a quilted liner, zip cuffs and of course, the traditional asymmetric biker zip fastening.

Today I had the pleasure of buying Balmain’s AW12 collection and for the second season running it blew me away. Filling the shoes of a previously successful designer is never an easy task. For Balmain, having Christophe Decarnin at the reins vastly improved and invigorated the French label who saw a transition at the hands of Olivier Rousteing. Entering his sophomore showing for Balmain, military garb inspired by Russian Imperial Army uniforms yielded some smartly tailored pieces that was set alongside some of Balmain’s more signature pieces including of course the leather division.
Always the first Runway show I check it is Dries, this Autumn Winter 2012 Collection makes for a profound balance between interesting patterns and block colors, each defined the clean and minimal critique the Belgian designer is renowned for. The patterns are bold and vibrant with jungle and floral themes while cuts are timeless with coats and jackets well tailored providing a great contrast for each other.
