Street Style at Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Weeks - The Embroidered Bomber Jacket

my pic - a sneak peek of an upcoming post (watch this space)

It comes no secret to those (1 or 2) of you who have been following my blog for some time to know that I have a huge weakness for embroidered pieces, particularly oriental-themed embroidery.  I am also a huge fan of 'sporty luxe' items like silk hooded and bomber jackets, and tapered jogger pants. 

pretty embroidery + 'sporty' pieces = match made in heaven 

Obviously I'm not the only one to think so, as embroidered bomber jackets made quite a few appearances 'on the street' during the Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Weeks.  My favourite piece obviously being the breathtakingly beautiful 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket (almost as breathtaking as its price, and the fact that even if I came upon a money tree, it'd be to no avail, as they're practically selling out everywhere, boo!), as well as the Ginta embroidered jacket

For those who are interested:

The Ginta Embroidered jacket can be purchased here.

The 3.1 Phillip Lim embroidered jacket (the first and last jacket pictured) are available for purchase at (although they're selling out as fast as I can blink):

Just putting it out there so I can live vicariously through you...


  1. super cute!

  2. These remind me of Maharishi items. Back in the noughties they're well known for their embroidered sportswear. My husband has their bomber jacket with a tiger embroidered on the back.

  3. They are absolutely beautiful. That 3.1 Phillip Lim one is stunning. I can't believe how quickly it's selling out.

    I thought I would let you know that there is a gorgeous denim embroidered bomber by Ksubi too that is due out in the coming months. It's the one Christine Centenera wears. At a reasonable price too!

  4. Ahhh, there's not much I wouldn't do for that Proenza jacket! I have my eye on the Three Floor look-alike, Love your comments on my blog. Keep them coming! x

  5. These jackets are beautiful! The details are impeccable and I can see why these are highly coveted!
