Pierre Balmain leather jacket
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.
