Where the runway meets the street

The bomber jacket is more popular than ever. The last time we remember seeing as many people with the silhouette on the streets must have been almost 15-20 years ago, the difference being that at the time everybody went with the classic Alpha bomber and today pretty much every streetwear and luxury brand presents its own take on the iconic fashion piece. For the first colder months of the season, the short-cut jacket is still a great choice and therefore we have put together a tight selection of warm bomber jackets that are now available at retailers.

AMI – Shearling Trimmed Plaid Bomber Jacket

A nice classic that gets reinvented by the French designer here. Plaid outer and natural shearling collar always make for a good match. AMI of course makes it more modern with its updated cut. You can get it now here.

Rick Owens Flight Bomber Jacket

We love the Rick Owens bomber jacket – slightly longer, tight sleeves, just an all-around great jacket. For fall/winter it returns with a matching black lamb fur collar. You can get it now here.

Louis W. Shinjuku Bomber Ecru

Louis W. from A.P.C. is back this season with his namesake label and continues to design mostly on the bomber silhouette. For Fall/Winter 2013 he presents a full sheepskin version, now in stock here.

Burberry Brit Shearling Collar Bomber Jacket

Burberry Brit goes with an interesting reinterpretation of the bomber, sticking with the classic olive green nylon upper, yet adding a biker jacket zip front and shearling collar. Get it now here.

AMI – Shearling Trimmed Suede Bomber Jacket

The French brand does not only offer a plaid version but also this more elegant and classy black suede version of the jacket, now available here.

You can take the above jackets also as inspiration, because of course there are many more out there that also look great. For us a timeless design when it comes to a jacket is always important, and especially a winter jacket you do want to be able to match with lots of other pieces from your wardrobe.
