When it comes to a well-curated wardrobe, one that looks modern and stands the test of time, there are key pieces every woman requires. A trench coat: check. A parka: check, check. A leather biker jacket: oh, yeah. From its invention by Irving Schott in 1928, when the addition of a zipper and an asymmetric cut revolutionized the garment’s look, to today when it can pair with anything from a T-shirt and jeans to a wedding gown topper (hello, @ManRepeller), it’s stood the test of time. Here, we go behind the design of one of our favorite fall jackets.

“There’s always been a bit of rebel spirit at the heart of
our collection. The leather biker jacket—it’s as classic as a
blazer, only cooler.”
