Junya's jackets are THE leather jackets of the season. I have never been a fan of bulk oversized jackets, but was totally won over when I saw the collection. Net-a-Porter has the one with the cracked leather and the shearling trim; I'm so in awe of it! <3

Hands down my favourite style of leather jacket. The Burberry Prorsum ones are amazing

the burberry ones are definitely amazing!...
thanks for the pics jared...


for women...i like it when the style goes a bit below the waist...
seems more flattering...and also practical...

i do like cropped ones - like really cropped...
just for fun...cropped ones aren't super practical......

I have at least four and wear them to go out as well as when I am on my motorbike. The only one I don't wear on the bike is my bright pink Harley Davidson one that Mr Feline bought me as a gift. Although I like to wear them with casual clothes, jeans etc., I really love the look of them over a very feminine lace dress or something like that. I like the contrast of the two different styles worn together.

Don't overlook motorcycle shops for some great leather jackets. I bought one years ago at a Harley Davidson shop. It didn't have all the logo BS all over it, and people were always trying to buy it off me whenever I wore it out.

It ended up with my best friend who enjoyed wearing it our to leather bars, etc, but it soon became HIS closet staple.
I am now looking for a new one and will seek out a classic one. Love the look of a motorcycle jacket over a soft, feminine dress. The juxtaposition of styles makes the whole look better.

I LOVE biker jackets. I have around 6 and I've seen another one I want to buy. My friends joke that when I have kids they'll come out in biker jackets.

Some people thought they were tacky but I really liked the Burberry s/s 11 biker jackets.

dont biker jackets and combat boots go hand in hand? at least in my world. the thing is i think you have to wear them and not let them get so heavy handed they wear you. even though one of mine is a bess jacket with major brass studs when i saw it i knew it was part of my persona...so be it.

dont get me started on junya's version...goner.
