Step back in time and master the bomber jacket trend. The simplest way to inject an à la mode feel into your closet is to opt for the garment in either a cropped or slouchy fit. Mytheresa has a vast selection of the style in a variation of bright and pastel tones, that are sure to complement a spectrum of outfits.
THE ORIGIN OF FLIGHT JACKETS
The inception of the bomber jacket dates back to WW1. During this particular era aircraft cockpits were not covered, therefore, military aviators needed a garment to shield them from the cold. Resulting in the invention of the 'A-2' and 'B-15' jackets, both of which held the stylistic elements of the bomber.
At the turn of the 1950's, flight jackets began to transcend into civilian life. The 80's, in particular, marked the point that the style exploded into fashion, which was greatly due to two key factors. Firstly, Harrison Ford wore the design in the cult film Indiana Jones. Secondly, the garment that was often paired with skinny jeans, t-shirts and biker boots was a trademark of the generation's punk subculture.
Today, the outwear product has a prominent space in the world of fashion, and luxury labels like Givenchy and Marni have produced the cover-up in a variety of textiles such as leather, satin and suede. Learn more about the history of the bomber jacket here.
