IN FOCUS: MONTEBELLO LEATHER BIKER JACKET

03.05.15

The black leather biker jacket is one of menswear’s most beloved items, and season after season, decade after decade, its popularity shows no signs of waning.

Part of the biker jacket’s enduring appeal lies in its ability to look just as good worn and lived in as it does freshly pristine. Therefore, it’s not surprising that the biker jacket has become a sartorial stalwart for generations of stylish men.

This season’s Montebello leather biker jacket has been constructed using a high temperature technique to bond together jersey and leather. The result is a jacket which fuses a luxurious fabrication with a precise fit, sure to stay in your wardrobe for years to come.

The bucket bag is the undeniable front runner when it comes to this season’s hero accessory styles. A contemporary take on a classic, this beautiful piece of leather craftsmanship is as stylish as it is practical and will lend even the most classic looks a subtle yet directional twist.

This season, the REISS accessory designers have created a series of beautifully executed bucket bags that allow you to tap into the trend in the most sophisticated way. These on-point pieces are designed and created completely in-house, using supple leather and high-shine metal hardware for a luxe combination. Not sure how to wear it?  We’ve composed three very different outfits to help to set the tone.

IN CONVERSATION WITH: GAVIN CAMPBELL

05.04.15

It’s an indisputable fact. Jack Purcell sneakers can count themselves amongst the world’s most iconic shoe designs. And, as if their decades of popularity weren’t testament enough, you’ll only need to glance at the feet of some of the world’s most stylish men for further affirmation.

Loved for their ability to be both cool and core, the shoe’s simple design is doubtless the key to enduring popularity. For SS15 the iconic shoe arrives at Reiss in brand new colourways, fabrications and in the guise of the updated ‘Signature‘ style.

So, we headed to Converse’ London offices for a conversation with brand expert Gavin Campbell, who here waxes lyrical about everything Jack Purcell.
