Evolved jet technology is what inspired the ancestor of today’s modern bomber jacket, so it is only fitting that advancements in technology and avant-garde design have influenced the designers behind this season’s collection of menswear bomber jackets. The classic MA-1 styles come with a rich history, featuring utilitarian details like a nylon satin exteriors and rib knit stand collars, cuffs, and hems. Many designers adopt the bomber’s iconic style effortlessly, some streetwear labels even creating collaborations with Alpha Industries, the original bomber jacket distributor. Other iterations of the classic bomber jacket take on avant-garde, couture treatments such as asymmetric or cropped constructions, distressed treatments, or panelled and lace-up details. Deconstructed elements like offset detachable storm flaps or transparent vinyl overlays express further the bomber’s vast potential for continued alteration. Scattered graphics, patchwork, and detailed embroidered appliqués are seen throughout this season's offering, while shearling, velvet, and leather textures mix with camouflage patterning and bright colors to update the nylon bomber jacket’s founding color code of sage green and midnight blue. Often padded or down-filled, the bomber jacket is a relaxed, yet practical and highly-functionable staple throughout all the seasons.
