Pierre Balmain leather jacket

Selected the 16 April 2012 by Adel as "the fireman"

One of my siblings recently told me about how leather was represented in the Cinéma, from the late 60′s epic film Easy Rider to 80′s post-apocalyptic Mad Max. In both cases, leather is intimately mingled with the road, rebellion, freedom and some kind of perfection. Pierre Balmain’s black leather jacket is the perfect-o example.

For some reasons I have the strong feeling that black leather is going to be more and more popular among haute-couture brands this year; starting with the new Jil Sanders AW12 collection for instance. Okay, although I have to admit that people completely dressed in leather freak me out, the leather jacket is the single piece of clothes I can see myself with. Why?

Because, I’m in my mid twenties, and I’ve just started to provide for myself. So I think It’s the right moment for me to get one as a manifest of my independance. I’m seeking one that is fit, tight, thin and casual. One that makes me look good without looking like some Hells Angels motorbiker.

Ô I think I’ve found it. Pierre Balmain’s leather jacket is the one, the one that will work perfectly as my second skin.
