Bombers

This season’s collection of women’s bomber jackets are tailored for a contemporary, feminine silhouette. Advancements in technology and avant-garde design have influenced designers' iterations on the classic shape. Streetwear labels interested in adopting and celebrating the rich history of the bomber jacket create close interpretations of the classic MA-1 style, while couture designers abandon utilitarian features for more streamlined tailoring. Feminine details like a ruffled hem, sequined detailing, or an elongated shape are explored further by combinations of luxurious materials and colorblocked exteriors, creating the modern iteration of women’s bomber jackets. Supple lambskin sleeves merge with wool, crushed velvet meets shearling trim, and semi-transparent vinyl constructions further express the bomber jacket’s vast potential for continued alteration. Deconstructed versions of the classic appear in the form of padded shoulders, asymmetric design, or dramatically cropped hems. Oversized menswear-style jackets continue to prove covetable with hooded necklines, exaggerated dropped shoulders, and large utility pockets. Playful pops of pink and gold-tone are scattered throughout an otherwise khaki dominant color palette and with a variety of profiles to choose from, the refined silhouettes of this season’s bomber jackets prove to be a wardrobe staple.
