Hey, Snow White

White is trying to be the new black, and I am letting the milky shade have its way. As black’s opposite, evoking cleanliness and innocence, white also represents the beginning of new. With spring arriving in just a few weeks, I thought this would make for a refreshing way to welcome the season. You might remember my previous post, Leather Weather, where I divulge my mini journey through online shopping and internet surfing for the perfect biker jacket. Well, I have layered over and under and I am so ready to strip those layers away. I’m yearning for warmth the way Kelly Cutrone must yearn for a vacation. To settle my need for a new and inspiring white shield, I took to the net and found 4 perfect white leather jackets.

 

#1: EACH X OTHER

It was love at first gawk when my eyes fell upon the sexy Striped Leather Jacket by Each X Other. Made in collaboration with underground French fashion designer Naco Paris, the contrasting striped jacket is perfect to wear with your favorite boyfriend jeans and a ripped t-shirt. I would most definitely wear this jacket to its death-bed.

#2: RODARTE

This jacket, white and shining in armor is the prince(ss) of all white leather jackets. From Rodarte’s prêt-à-porter Fall/Winter 2013 collection, it is available for preorder on Moda Operandi’s online boutique. The oversized white leather biker has both silver and gold exposed zipper pockets, lace up side details, and a studded front pocket. It is pretty badass if you ask me.

#3: ACNE STUDIOS

Acne’s Rita Leather Jacket is true to the classic biker style. This awesome cropped motorcycle jacket, with contrasting hardware and asymmetrical zip details, has a real structured feel. It is so neat and pristine that I would want to wear it with tight black high-waisted skinny jeans. This could easily become my “French Biker Babe” look. Je suis un mauvais bébé!

#4: R13

R13’s white leather moto reeled me in with its super stylish details. The two-way double-breasted zip closure, zippered vents at side seams, and zip pockets had me in hardware heaven. You can ultimately wear this jacket with anything. As I would typically want to dress this moto down, I can definitely see myself rocking it with a Rick Owens skirt and Wang boots. It just oozes perfection!
