For every man, woman, child, grandmother and Kanye West there is Chanel. Last year Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld joined forces to create a project titled “The Little Black Jacket.” Mr. Largerfeld was photographer who snapped 100 different musicians, actors, designers, models, and stylists all wearing Chanel’s iconic black jacket styled differently on every single person. The fashion project resulted in a video, a world touring exhibition, and a coffee table book.
I wore my leather jacket for the first time this season and it seems as though the older it gets, the more attention I receive, mostly from the fellas. One person wanted to try it on (like I was born yesterday) while another compared it to his own saying “your leather is as good as mine!” Are the biker leather jackets women wear inferior to those of our male counterparts?
The first official day of summer is June 20th 2012 and the past few days in New York City with temperatures over 80 degrees there will be no transition time just…. just nothing. I’m decided to start my Will Smith’s “Summertime” dance remix now. I’m doing it with small doses of pastels and neons, avoiding head-to-toe floral prints like it was the plague, overloading on the bangles so they feel like weights, rocking short like the boys, maxi skirts dragging like I’m walking the red carpet, and spikes to keep the bad ones three feet away. Those are just a few of my favorite things. Cue the music!
