Saint Laurent / Tommy Hilfiger / Gucci – Spring/Summer 2015
This season, the military jacket made another appearance on the catwalks. But rather than forming part of a general military inspired trend, it was the styling of this fashion favourite that was the talking point.
Reflecting designers’ latest fascination with the music scene, it served to up the glam rock stakes at seventies inspired Gucci, gave a firm nod to sixties Sgt Pepper style at Tommy Hilfiger and sharpened up Hedi Slimane’s rock chic at Saint Laurent.
As a lover of sharp tailoring, the military jacket is made for my wardrobe. Two years ago, I bought Zadig & Voltaire’s ‘Lio Deluxe’ jacket, as modelled here by Poppy Delevigne, and it’s still a firm favourite..
And I’m not the only one who’s taken with this uniform style. One of my favourite style icons is perhaps fashion’s most famous military jacket wearer…
