Last season James Long looked to Ibiza hedonism for inspiration, telling the story of a fallen boxer, but this season it was all about glamour and elevated functionality. “Everything we looked at, we wanted to say that you know, it’s not just a biker jacket. It’s that juxtaposition of glamour and on-the-edge that I always love,” says Long.
Hoods up and hair hung loose shadowing the face, this season James’ boys were broody, dark and mysterious. His band of brothers stomped down the catwalk in belted shearling outerwear, luxurious leather, lace appliquéd three stripe track pants, illustrated jersey (by James Davidson), hooded black capes and patchwork jeans to a remix of Fufanu – ‘Circus Life’ by Simon Milner of ITS TROPICAL.
With robe-like furs, oversized suede pocketed aviator jackets, motorcycle worthy leathers, raw stitched knitwear and distressed and customised denim all making an appearance for AW15, where wouldn’t we wear it?
