As an 80’s baby, I needed to created a jacket that pays homage to that era. I was so into creating this perfect silhouette made out of the softest and drapiest leather. With deep armholes, shoulder pads and a crop length – the LAMARQUE Dylan moto jacket is literally life.
All the styles we design are so much fun to create but this one was a riot. Our patternmaker Richard, who is such a character and absolutely the most talented patternmaker in entire country, totally felt the sketch of this style within his core since he used to go out to parties and make his outfits during those years! He had no base template to start from so he had to create this pattern entirely from scratch. And of course, when I tried on the first prototype of this jacket, he literally nailed it. As I recall, we only had to shift a belt loop.
The reaction to the DYLAN has been amazing. It’s been worn by Mariah Carey (which is sooo cool), Olivia Culpo (& she is smoking, see the post here) and has been featured in L’Officiel magazine. But the ultimate best feeling is Revolve re-ordering it over and over and having it worn by all these amazing cutting edge beauties.
