Versatile and chic, the leather jacket is one of the season’s must-haves.


Cropped motorcycle styles are the leading silhouette, but they’re not the only game in town.

Bombers, trench coats, and streamlined jackets with straight vertical plackets are on fashion’s radar, too.

Skins range from shiny patent to soft lamb, calf, suede, and vegan-friendly pleather editions, and quilting is a major trend.

Salvatore Ferragamo turned out a knee-length coat in quilted black leather that’s an ideal go-to, and Burberry and AG accented classic bikers with quilted sleeve details.
