I have wanted a biker leather jacket for as long as I can remember but I have never had any luck in finding the right one. Either they are typically waaaay too expensive or the style just does not suit. This year I got to spend my birthday in London and my girlfriends decided to help me along with my shopping spree because they knew how much fun I was having shopping in Europe. They graciously helped me acquire the beautiful All Saints leather jacket pictured above.
I must say as soon as I set foot in All Saints (an edgy British label with a slight grunge for those of you that haven’t been to London or the US), I knew I was in luck. It’s as if all those fashionistas that I’d seen on the street sporting those gorgeous biker jackets that I had coveted were all working in the one store! They have a beautiful collection of leather jackets for both guys and girls in various styles and shapes. No doubt this made finding my beautiful jacket that much easier, with just the right amount of bikey-ness to it without looking too tough.
Tower bridge I believe is one of the most beautiful bridges in London and I’ve always wanted to take some photos here. Of course I’d have to be wearing something British, and whilst leather jackets may not be the first thing that spring to mind when you think British fashion I think it was a perfect choice. I teamed up with my beautiful stylist friend Tien from Tsyledme (who also chipped in for my leather jacket!) to come up with this beautiful outfit for the shoot! I have been dying to wear her Isabel Marant Dickers and we built my outfit around these 2 key pieces. Tien picked out the beautiful girly fluttering asymetrical Zara skirt to juxtapose the biker jacket whilst I grabbed her beautiful Alexander Wang Marion bag which conveniently was also in my favourite color. She also chose a neon colored necklace to add a little fun to the outfit.
Perfect for a day out and about in London-town!
