I’m mad about this leather jacket by Jean Claude Jitrois. It’s got everything: unusual colors, an asymmetrical zipper, a belt, lacing on the sides and a big ol’ horse (with jockey) on the front. Click here to see all the pictures on eBay. If you bid, don’t forget to snipe!
The jacket reminds me of Stella McCartney’s Spring 2001 collection for Chloe, which had a number of equine-themed pieces. But if you see Stella, don’t tell I her I said that because leather gets her all riled up.
The only thing about leather that gets me riled up (in a good way) is the idea of washable stretch leather jeans, which is something Jean Claude Jitrois is now selling. I don’t know why that should thrill me so much since I rarely wash my jeans anyway (hey, it hurts them!) but I like the sound of it.
Speaking of leather pants, I’ve previously mentioned that at my wedding, I changed out of my Richard Tyler wedding gown late in the evening and into custom-made white leather hip huggers and a matching halter top. I’ll post a picture of that one of these days.
UPDATED TO ADD: I found a vintage dress to match the jacket. This Mr. Blackwell dress is $275 at Vintageous.
