So when I asked the ladies to pick out their favorite leather jacket from our completely re-vamped 2012 Collection, only a few of them were eager to jump at modeling (everyone else was just a bit too shy). But three lovely ladies had no problem picking out their favorite and enjoyed an impromptu photo shoot right here in our factory.
Our first model picked out a new number, a belted blazer / trench style jacket in a very unique textured leather. The cut alone would probably not call your attention but, the “washed” or “distressed” inspired leather called schevrette (a bit like corvette) is what really sets this jacket apart. Available only in a deep dark brown, this jacket is a good fit for all sizes. With a vintage inspired look, the antiqued brass colored buttons and belt buckle are a perfect match.
Now this young lady really got into the spirit, when I told her “take your pick” she must have understood take 4 picks – or maybe she really liked the idea of being online? Any way the first shot we have of her is in the ivory colored trench. Since everywhere you look this year it seams that trenches are just popping, we choose this one first (her other choices will be coming soon :-)- and though she has a tendency to look good in whatever she tried on, I particularly liked the way she interprets the casual spy-look with the collar up – I bet she would look great in the cherry red color jacket but a lot less conspicuous !
Lastly, was my British colleague who went towards the more stylish cut, but of course she would. Its a classic from last year which we tweaked a bit and brought it back due to its popularity, and you have to admit, it gives her a bit of an attitude! The model definitely accents an hour glass figure and is appropriate for all heights. You can button it to the top and leave it with a mandarin collar or open the top button for a pin down collar – either way is a great fit. This jacket comes in a classic black or a what we call “vinaccia” in Italian – which literally means fermented grapes . . . translated = wine !!
