ARCHIVE STYLING Vol.35
Archive Fashion Newly Defined by Stylist Shotaro Yamaguchi
It has a presence, and you won’t be caught wearing the same piece as your friends. And even better, you can keep on wearing it for decades. A leather jacket is definitely a piece of clothing you want to have in your closet. But don’t you find it quite difficult to actually make the best of it? Wearing a rider’s jacket makes you look like you’re part of the punk crowd like Sid Vicious or the Ramones, and wearing a long coat makes people think you’re cosplaying as the black detective Richard Roundtree from the movie Shaft. What should you buy, when rider’s jackets and coats are not an option but you still want a modern leather jacket? We recommend this piece, which was announced in the 2018S/S collection by MARTINE ROSE. The figure was calculated into the small details and the design keeps inspiring. It’s also a spring/summer item, so it’s not that heavy either, and you can wear it in other seasons as well. This is, in other words, the perfect leather jacket. You can keep on wearing it for several years or decades, enjoying the changes in texture that come with the material. We are looking forward to the day that this item grows even further in value as an archive item.
