BUBBLEGUM AND LEATHER

Never would I thought the once bubblegum teenie boppers would create enter a world of edgy designer fashion.

A stylish girlfriend of mine recently introduced a gorgeous leather jacket to me in which I fell in love with instantly. The “Superfine Leather Jacket” is made of smooth buttery leather and draped asymmetrically with soft pleats – the perfect addition to any outfit. Whether you are out with the ladies on cocktail hour (or evening for some) or off to the supermarket for grocery shopping, the versatile jacket is an attention grabber in any situation. The jacket reminded me of Rad Hourani’s collection debut show last year where his fascinating collection promised androgynous silhouettes and clean lines.

You might be just as surprised to hear that this jacket was co-designed by the Olsen twins. Yes, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen from the infamous 90s tv comedy Full House. Their contemporary line is labelled as Elizabeth and James. I’m not sure who Elizabeth or James are, but in any case, having your face behind this contemporary label definitely redeemed the twins from their horrific hobo days and bubblegum perceived persona and into the world of fine fashion. I guess going to NYU for an education wasn’t a bad idea after all. Absolutely genius.
The jacket retails for $858 and can be found at any high-end retailer.
