I’ve collected my fair share of leather jackets from designers such as Belstaff, Acne and Theory, but for the last few seasons, my bikers have been hanging patiently in the wings, over-shadowed by the statement coat.
Well, the gloves are now off and the biker is fighting back! Witness its resurgence in both high street and designer stores. Fancy something classic, clean cut, elegant, butter-soft and feminine? Look no further than the ‘Tyler’ from SET. At just £369, this beauty comes in a kaleidoscopic range of colours including black, navy, khaki, pink, red and even a yellow that brightens up the greyest of winter days.
On a budget, you could do worse than a trip to Zara, where you can pick up a classic at just £99 or, feeling flush, you could splash out on a shearling-lined ‘Velocite’ from Acne Studios at an eye-watering £2100.
Whatever your taste, get on your bike and get a biker!
