Motor Folk

HighSnobriety reports that Undercover, a japanese brand helmed by Jun Takahashi, has successfully gene-spliced biker with gypsy.

The motorcycle jacket has been the subject of a lot of attention over the past few seasons, with Junya Watanabe, Stefano Pilati, and Raf Simons all having their fun with one of the more iconic pieces of menswear. So far we've seen silk, neon, and trenchcoat interpretations. Personally I'm a big fan of this trend and think that its been a fun ride so far though nothing will ever replace the benefits of genuine leather during the coldest months of winter.

And if the gypsy blend of biker jacket doesn't turn you on than maybe Marianne Faithful will decked in Lanvin designed leather? The Way Out girls hunted down Girl on a Motorcycle on their highly entertaining biker-centric site.

These jackets are so nice to look at! I wish I can own them! haha

On a similar note, the embellishments make me think of Kenzo for AW08 and SS09!

All with great details!!!
