F/W ’14 • BOMBERS
The waist length cloak, consumed by multiple personality disorder, leaving each season with ambiguous flair. This season, as the world watched designers share their ideas for social critique, appreciation and covet, outerwear is rendered through fabricated capsules, lifting time, proportions and visuals to a twisting mimicry of yesterday’s trends and tomorrow’s progression. The bomber, a garment of my adoration and surprisingly a staple in many of the collections revealed in the past three weeks, has been lifted to heights both conventional and completely left-field. As the fashion guild finds its way NorthEast, I decided to channel my EU spacial realm and give you guys a few of my favorite bombers, presented this week. By no means, is this is a closed conversation, mention yours in response, after all, we all have the tenacity to feel and know what style is!
Julien David F/W 2014 · Hypebeast
Dried, colors pressed with a tailored silhouette sends this bomber, to a medium of both formal and informal pretenses. David’s cultural influences are deeply evident, not only in this piece but the collection in its entirety. The color palette of this jacket instantly caught my eye, almost as if the garment is a direct product of the designer’s remorseful remembrance, of his temporary departure from Spring.
Études F/W 2014 · WWD
The graphic, posture appearance and imaging is distinctly, key to the collections color and text distortion. Highly unfamiliar to the brand’s descent, certainly a faulty attribute of my own character, I am now interested in discovering more of the house and more importantly it’s designers. In any rate, this bomber is another, strike on my need to feel list! Haha
Dries Van Noten F/W 2014 · WWD
The fragility of all colors is subjected to saturation, textural and fabrication. One of the first looks, I fell in love with clearly signifying Noten’s desire of masterful tailoring with diverse contemporary twists. Although, the design is type-original, the color choice, is imperative to the impact of this jacket’s presence.
AMI F/W 2014 · Style.com
Minimalism, carries most of today’s trends. Fundamentals of the elaborate color spectrum, black and white pretty much dominate Alexandre Mattiussi’s collection. Domineering lengths and dauntingly structured outwear designates this collection, as one with an intense masculine flair. The bomber above is classically patterned, but remains entrenched in the flair that AMI is currently known for.
