Life is better with a spoonful of leather…

About 10 years ago, i bought my first sketchbook. In it, i can really vividly remember drawing (badly) a rick owens style leather jacket as a thing of pure WANT.  Ten years on, and although an awful lot has changed, my desire to own a Rick Owens jacket has not. google rick owens leather jacket and you get about 70,000 results. apparently i am not alone.

I dunno whether it’s the asymmetrical zips, the butter leather or the cut –  or probably all of the above – but they make me want to do crazy things to get one. Like start a savings account.

I am not a massive fan of his general aesthetic – check out the diaper look from his SS11 collection, hmm.

However, he is one of those designers who is really really good at creating separates that can be styled and worn in the real world. If in the real world you have two grand to spend on a leather jacket….*sigh*.
