This Season’s Must Have- the Bomber Jacket!
We are jacket mad here at Mandi Candi- anything from a biker to a pea coat, we want them all. An upside to living in sunny Scotland (ahem), you pretty much need one all year round! This gives us the perfect excuse to fund our jacket obsession no matter what time of the year it is- YAY!
The bomber jacket has been on our radar for a while now, we love the casual sporty vibe and how it makes us feel all 90’s nostalgic; therefore we are ever so happy the simple bomber has had a new season makeover for AW16.
Gucci were the first to grab our attention with their new collection showcasing beautiful embroidery designs and shimmering metallic shades at their AW16 show.
Everyone from Stella McCartney to Rag & Bone had bomber jackets flawlessly sweeping the runway- and it wasn’t just the ladies getting all the fun, the menswear shows were packed full of them too. Jared Leto was FROW at the Gucci show proudly showcasing his jazzy, custom made, jacket.
Just look at him. He knows he’s the coolest guy in the room.
Leto isn’t the only one in celebsville loving this trend. Model BFF’S Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been spotted wearing bomber jackets numerous times now (never forget the Great Matching Bomber Outfit of 2015) and are updating their old jackets for something new. Gigi opted for a lilac silk while Kendall went for a quilted oriental pattern.
Even Harry Styles has showcased his love for a patterned bomber. Styles made an appearance on Good Morning America wearing a Saint Laurent bomber with a bold pattern all the way back in November 2015. Always one step ahead that one.
So, if you are loving this trend as much as we are then don’t fret- we have your back! We were practically fan-girlling over Gigi’s lilac bomber, and now we are stock full of one very similar! This lightweight jacket is the most perfect metallic shade- we just can’t get enough of it!
