Luxe to Less: Moto Jackets

Words By Brittany Lyons

Although available in many variations, we’re going back to basics with the black leather biker jacket. With minimal embellishments, this classic piece stands as a cornerstone to the modern wardrobe.

Luxe

Leather staple pieces such as these should be seen as an investment in your wardrobe. A style to surpass any trend, a great leather jacket will outlast fads, seasons and probably, decades. The high-end moto jacket is often realised in the highest quality of hides, usually being that of lamb leather. The stiff nature of the fabrication will soften with wear, evolving into a grained, worn-in texture that only gets better with age.

Quite possibly the most expensive piece hanging in your closet, you’ll cherish your leather biker and all the memories you’ve shared wearing it, for years to come.

Less

Not just a matter of cost, those preferring not to wear animal hide will appreciate these vegan-friendly options. Typically crafted from polyurethane, a faux-leather option will mimic the texture of the real deal, as well as retain amazing longevity. A look for less and more sustainably minded, these bikers have the power to transport you to NYFW in the winter and beyond.

Fantastic over a bulky knit or paired with a summer dress, the versatile nature of the moto jacket is one that you’ll rely on often. You won’t know what life was before you had one of these to throw over any look.
