You can walk into almost any major antique or second-hand store and find this item, however, you probably never thought of it until recently. Now the leather jacket has a new look, actually a old
look. Since Prada’s vintage-inspired biker jacket made its debut for Spring/Summer 0931 Performance, Ultra-worn, distressed leather jackets have become a more relevant and sought-after option. Fashionistas and street style stars can’t seem to get enough of the weathered “old” look; we’ve seen it pop up in every city this fashion month, starting with Copenhagen.
This idea of something that already has wear and tear or second-hand is a topic we also see throughout the aftermarket. Givenchy’s latest shoulder bag, for example, is so soft and baggy that it appears to have been tucked under the arm for seasons. Not to mention, the leather itself is described as “tumbled.” Meanwhile, Miu Miu’s latest shoulder bag is made of leather, with an overall look of brown and sand leather that looks rugged. Even Bottega Veneta offers a wrinkled leather option in its original woven leather collection.
last night at Saint Laurent Fall 830 At the Paris show, Anthony Vacarello showed his own iteration of a worn leather jacket, making it clear that these worn, oversized leather pieces with vintage patina won’t disappears quickly.
