The Playbook For The Modern Man

Saint Laurent’s US$11,000 Patchwork Motorcycle Jacket

Full screen

Punk’s not dead – at least over at Saint Laurent. The French fashion house’s latest ready-to-wear collection includes a patchwork motorcycle jacket that will make your inner rock ‘n’ roller headbang with joy.

The eye-catching piece features a mosaic of leather patches that run the gamut from solid colours to checkers, metallics, stars, studs, sequins and a zoo’s worth of animal prints. Despite the wild details, the foundation is familiar. The jacket features a classic side-zip design, snap-down collar and belted waistband.

What’s decidedly un-punk is the price. In the 1970s, this would have been DIY. In 2016, the Saint Laurent patchwork motorcycle jacket will set you back nearly US$11,000.
