The leather jacket

My perfect leather jacket has to be the "biker" style and must meet the following specs: button notched lapels, asymmetrical front zip closer, must have belted waist and lastly, with silver hardware.

I have set my eyes on the BLK DNM leather jacket no. 8 for a few years after seeing it on stylish Parisiennes Emmanuelle Alt. I also have been following BLK DNM for years, on their ultra-cool mostly-black-and-white Instagram feed.

They said some things are worth waiting for and your first choice is always the right one. After resisting a few decent leather jackets, my wish came true when the last piece of the BLK DNM jacket was on sale on the Net-A-Porter US site last winter.

The jacket went to Europe with me - dressed me up in Paris, resisted a very cold windy week in London and earned me a spot here on Vogue's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia street style gallery.
