This year’s Fall/Winter collections are all about furs, and designers are using them to create a plethora of takes on the classic bomber jacket. Many designers have played with scale for this trend, showing an oversized variation of the aviation style. Designers such as Sacai, Niel Barrett, Burberry Prosum, Emlio Pucci and Ralph Lauren all boasted bombers that almost swallowed their models in shearling. Others, such as Diesel Black Gold and Oscar de la Renta, took a more demure or classic approach to the bomber jacket. As much of a trend as it is an investment piece, the bomber jacket has serious staying power in any wardrobe.
Accessorize with pieces that have a similar aesthetic to the bomber jacket. Pieces with a heavy style and vintage feel pair perfectly with this season’s top trend. The collar is the accessory of the year. It works well with a bomber because of the low collar the coat traditionally has. Heavy metal collars with texture, like those from Jean Paul Gaultier, Voluminous and Raoul, help create a vintage feel that fits right into the Fall/Winter season. More demure collars, like the pearl collar from Dries Van Noten or the simple rose gold collar from Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi keep the look classic and chic.
