STARS & STRIPES - KAKI
SHIPPING APRIL 29TH
Wildust welcomes the latest addition to its collection; it's the leather we've always dreamed of... And if you have the same references as us, the same retro culture that drives you....
- THE STYLE : Vintage Racing. We're referring directly to the vintage GP motorbike jacket: we've always been fascinated by these multicoloured leather jackets with large logos in stitching. With coloured inserts that give an incomparable style, vintage pieces that are sold today as real treasures of the time, were often decorated with large embroidered or applied logos in contrasting colours, in the colours of the essential sponsor of the time: MARLBORO, LUCKY STRIKE, or CASTROL... All the symbolism of the time that no longer exists today, but that made us nostalgic, and that we wanted to retranscribe, in one way or another.
- THE COLOURS: Well obviously, vintage style, the seventies, if you know us, that's our thing. The Mac Queen style, or for those in the know, the super stylish look of the heroine Julie Wood, is clearly what inspired us. Mixing vintage racing style with seventies colours and the chromatic style of the time was the challenge. The result is a two-tone khaki and cream jacket, with some logos applied in a contrasting colour.
- THE CUT : We obviously needed a feminine cut, so we went for another favourite universe made in Wildust... The Wild West and the good old cowgirl jackets. The fitted cut, the stars in stitching on the sleeves and the back are clearly inherited from this Western universe. Just like the cowboy boots and the star belt buckles, we couldn't resist giving this jacket a neo-country look that made us travel so much!
In short, you'll understand, a bit of GP, a touch of western and a lot of AMERICAN VINTAGE SPIRIT... It gives this "Stars & Stripes" jacket absolutely exceptional.
Made of cowhide leather, it is soft and robust at the same time. A satin lining provides the necessary thermal comfort, it has an inside pocket, a central zip and a pilot collar with snap. Two zipped pockets on the front and two zips on the sleeves for added comfort.
We were about to forget the most important thing. It's beautiful, that's true, but as well as being absolutely gorgeous, it's also a motorbike jacket. This means that YES, you can insert motorbike protections inside and ride safely: a pocket for the back protector, 2 pockets for the shoulder protectors and 2 pockets for the elbow protectors are integrated in the lining (not delivered with the jacket)
Because the most important thing for Wildust is to offer motorbike clothing without compromising on style and protection. That's why this jacket could be a favorite for anyone. An adventurer, a seventies fan, a girl who rides. or NOT ! :-)
