Road Rage

This sea­son’s geared-up ver­sion of the biker jacket is rigged with ex­tra decor and new def­i­ni­tion—and it’s chock-full of at­ti­tude

Hong Kong Tatler - - Men -

The biker jacket has made its fash­ion world come­back time and time again. Whether rounded, over­sized, but­toned or zipped, it has swapped faces on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions to ar­rive at its cur­rent look. Givenchy by Ric­cardo Tisci un­veils its revved-up ver­sion of the biker jacket, in­clud­ing sig­na­ture el­e­ments such as dan­gled rac­coon tails on boxy tex­turised bik­ers—all de­signed to scream bad-boy. Sim­i­larly, Hedi Sli­mane at Saint Lau­rent also re­vamps the clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cle jacket with added zips and waist-belt de­tails. Revel in that at­ti­tude and opt for stand­out pieces such as leather bags, biker boots and stud­ded ac­ces­sories, and bal­ance out the heavy em­bel­lish­ments by pair­ing them with black jeans and mono­tone ba­sics for a non­cha­lant, care­free look. For va­ri­ety, mir­ror Tisci’s styling by ca­su­ally throw­ing it over a pin­stripe suit and a but­toned-up dress shirt. Clock­wise from top: Mod­els back­stage at Givenchy by Ric­cardo Tisci; bag by MCM; cuff by Alexan­der Mcqueen; belt by Givenchy by Ric­cardo Tisci; neck­lace and look by Saint Lau­rent; boot by Emporio Ar­mani
