Biker jackets are one of the “It” things on the runway abroad, and now is the perfect time for my fellow Filipino Fashionistas to put on a Trendy Biker jacket for the upcoming months of the year.The Biker Jackets first came to the world after the WWII. Intended to Symbolize, Rebellion and Rock and Roll. The jackets were actually banned in school systems around the U.S. because they symbolized a growing teen demographic, The Hoodlum in that time and fashion Era. The Famous American Actor James Dean was Iconic for wearing the so called Perfecto(biker jacket) that time. Yves Saint Laurent was the first to introduce the Perfecto-inspired jacket at the runway in 1960. The jacket was appearing at big fashion houses of Chanel and Versace by the end of the late 80’s, as the contemporary jackets were showcased in a more tailored and fitting silhouettes in different textures as well as the aesthetics of the jacket.
