RickOwens2_aRick Owens Hollywood Wrap Leather Jacket

What Year Of The Jacket would be complete without acquiring a grail? I fell in love with the Hollywood jacket almost a year ago when I first tried it on at Marais in the blister leather incarnation. It went on sale and sold out in my size, I missed out and was a little heartbroken.

Truth be told, though – I didn’t really want another blister leather jacket as my Biker is blister, and when Marais bought the same jacket for Vicious in the smooth lamb leather I was determined to make it mine. Of course I couldn’t afford it full price – but something compelled me to wander in today on my lunch break. Sure enough it was on sale and there was just one left in my size. What else was I to do?

Actually if I’m completely honest the true grail situation would be having the Biker in the smooth leather and the Hollywood in the blister; but I’m phenomenally grateful to have what I have so I’m not complaining for a moment.


ouu gorgeous! when it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.

The Year of the Jacket is looking damn good. A Rick Owens biker tops my grail list, the search goes on for the right candidate at a less heart-stopping price. I did spy a beautiful menswear version in thick cow hide which despite the oversized cut I haven’t been able to shake from my mind.

I’m trying to make this year the one that I finally aquire a rick owens blister jacket. I’ve wanted one for so long now.- hoping it will fit well on my very annoyingly busty body.
