In Case You Missed the Biker Trend..

So much for optimism.. just a few days into Paris Fashion Week and we’re seeing biker and moto jackets AGAIN for Spring 11. It seems like just yesterday (circa the Spring 09 and Fall 09/10 collections) that we saw Tough Chic and Road Warrior themes, respectively, just when the economy was tanking and we had no other choice than to combat it first hand with clothing. So maybe this surge of biker themes or moto jackets caters to the lingering double dip recession by way of tough looks? I mentioned that Burberry’s biker babes were right for the junior market but as a designer trend I didn’t see much relevance AND THEN came Balenciaga moto jackets and Balmain biker jackets, complete with all the hard edge anyone could ask for. The question is, what customer (or retailer) hasn’t already nailed this look?
