Pilots wore them in WWII. So did Brando. And Steve McQueen. Then, well, Fonzie. And... your uncle that time he had a midlife crisis and bought himself a hog. Fortunately for the quintessentially masculine staple known as the leather jacket, a new breed of designers, from John Varvatos to Rick Owens, has reinvigorated the look. And there's never been a better time to pick one up — whether in lightweight calf or supple suede. Here, professional stuntman Victor Paguia shows you three ways to make the look your own. (Acrobatic skills optional.)
Rick Owens has been described as bold, avant-garde, and brilliant — all for good reason. The American-born, Paris-based clothing designer, who started his career in Los Angeles, has a history of pushing the boundaries of fashion: consider, for example, his women’s suede-covered shaft sandals, which resemble cut-out boots, and deconstructed leather jackets. Owen’s moody denim jackets and jeans, knit sweaters and shirts, and edgy shoes and sneakers are precision-crafted from some of the world’s most luxurious materials and made to endure daily wear. From the unabashedly high-end creations of his flagship line, to the more egalitarian bent of his DRKSHDW imprint and collaborations with the likes of Eastpak, Rick Owens' dark, brooding, and trailblazing aesthetic is a formidable force.
