Spring has taken longer than usual to arrive this year, but it does give us a bit more time to wear cute coats. A little black leather jacket is definitely good for Paris weather in spring, often into June, depending on the weather gods. Instead of the traditional long-sleeved version, the folks from Hoon have designed this perfectly fitted sleeveless leather jacket, a classic vintage look with a modern twist. We match it with a brightly colored sweater to add some energy to the outfit. Animal prints are still on trend this season, so we have chosen the red tiger sweater from JCDC and a classic black jean from Innamorato to match with this statement leather piece. A très cool spring look that is totally from the latest Paris fashion trend!
Some of the Designers Mentioned
The concept of Hoon was born from the desire of the designer Adrien Haddad to create pieces that are eternal both in terms of design and production. It was in 2009, when he met Thibault Dollet, that Hoon realized his passion for leather by creating garments made by the best craftsmen in Paris. Hoon reinvents classic pieces such as the Teddy or the Perfecto in “second skin” garments that age with their owner.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac started his own clothing brand in 1978, combining his three passions: art, fashion and music. In the 1980s and 1990s, he attracted a clientele in search of novelties with iconic pieces such as painting or graffiti dresses or oversize clothes. Time after time, animated characters from his childhood became his source of inspiration, and this season, he designed a collection around animal prints. Leopard, tiger and other heads of the jungle come together in a wild party!
