Speed, danger and rebellion were once associated with the leather jacket, but we’ve come a long way, baby! Just as Marlon Brando in “The Wild Ones” and James Dean in “Rebel Without A Cause” made black leather jackets iconic, it took Debbie Harry, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyonce, among others, to help usher it into the 21st Century. Today, the LBJ (Little Black Jacket) comes in many shapes, sizes and moods. At Couture by Sophie, we’ve done a classic meets couture mash up for our cruelty-free, faux leather moto jackets. Oh, and a bit of chains, too.
Meet The James. Could be Dean. Could be Bond. It’s sleek, cool, with a hint of danger, but always dressed to kill. Model Jasper wears it with the requisite attitude (we got lucky). Made from butter soft black faux leather and a vivid blue lilac bridal satin lining, The James gets a bit naughty with a triple strand, drop chain and some silver pyramid studs.
If The James features a bit of bad boy (or grrl) edge, The Ellie is all girl! She’s bright, sunny and ready for Spring. With a clean-lined silhouette, featuring pottery orange ultra suede and a champagne satin lining, she incorporates the golden studs and chains to make you think she could be dangerous. But, we know she’s just stylish.
The James and The Ellie; perfect additions to a smart Spring wardrobe.
