The Motorcycle Diaries


The iconic motorcycle jacket never looked so good and so daring. Long a staple in every cool girl’s closet, designers updated the classic by mixing pony skin with sleek leather or contrasting color ways and quilted leather accents.

Etro’s version in white with color-blocked sleeves in black is made out of wool paired with a metallic zippered skirt following sharp edges. 3.1 Phillip Lim offered a quilted brown and black color-blocked leather version with suede insets and quilted shoulders detail over a pale blue shirt and dark mesh sweater paired with pink neoprene quilted shorts. Fendi royal blue leather moto jacket is scooped higher in the front and longer in the back worn with a white double knit wool dress with side slits.

Just Cavalli’s played with the tough black leather theme adding blue pony skin front panels and quilting over a graphic print blouse and black and gold velvet bell-bottomed pants. At Jason Wu, a cropped patent leather python skin jacket is paired with a knife-pleated white skirt. Altuzarra’s sleek punk version in black leather looks sharp when paired with a slim black wool skirt and black and white checkered ankle boots.
