Saint Laurent Paris Leather Jackets
What is now known as Saint Laurent has gone a long way from the days out of its founder and namesake Yves Saint Laurent. While the brand has gone through many changes under its various designers and creative directors, it’s easy to argue that the Hedi Slimane era was the most transformative, particularly for menswear. Slimane’s Saint Laurent, for better or worse, sparked numerous trends, including a new approach to the leather jacket. An item once reserved for bikers and punks was now on the back of every actor, athlete, musician and style-conscious man. The brand’s L01 Biker Jacket and L17 Leather Biker Jacket in particular were massive successes.
