Style: that beige biker (and where to buy eco-friendly leather)

Apr 6, 2018 | 2 comments

As you may remember in THIS post, I bought this biker jacket at Bricklane Vintage Market a couple of months ago, and it is part of my spring capsule. I have had a tan or beige biker jacket on my wish list for two years, and when I stumbled upon this one when we were in London, I just knew that had to come home with me! It’s such a fresh and nice alternative to my classic black biker, especially during spring. The jacket is not made of genuine leather, but it’s in such good condition, even though I prefer genuine leather. To me it just looks better in the long run.

Som I måske husker i DETTE indlæg med tilhørende vlog, så købte jeg denne biker jakke på Bricklane Vintage Market for et par måneder siden, og den er altså så en del af min spring capsule. Jeg har haft en brun eller beige biker jakke stående på min ønskeliste i to år, og da jeg faldt over denne da vi var i London, så vidste jeg bare den måtte med mig hjem! Synes den er så fint et alternativ til min klassiske sorte bikerjakke, især her om foråret. Jakken er ikke lavet i ægte læder, men den er simpelthen i så god stand og jeg syntes den var så fin alligevel, selvom jeg foretrækker ægte læder. Synes bare det ældes pænere.

If you are looking for the most (in my opinion) sustainable alternative to leather, secondhand versions are always an option. I bought my black leather jacket on Trendsales more than 6 years ago, and it still looks amazing. There is of course also Vestiaire Collective where you can be lucky to find a cool Anine Bing or Acne Studios biker jacket and otherwise there is the Asos Marketplace where you can find the coolest vintage leather jackets. However, there are also brands like Pelechecoco that makes the most beautiful jackets, in recycled leather from for example old furniture.

Hvis du er på udkig efter det mest (i min optik) bæredygtige alternativ til læder, så er brugte versioner altid en mulighed. Min sorte læderjakke i ægte skind er købt brugt på Trendsales for ca. 6 år siden, og den holder sig fantastisk. Der er selvfølgelig også Vestiaire Collective hvor du kan være heldig at finde en sej Anine Bing eller Acne Studios biker jakke og ellers er der Asos Marketplace, hvor du kan finde de fineste vintage læderjakker. Der findes dog også mærker som Pelechecoco der laver de flotteste jakker, i genbrugt skind fra fx gamle sofaer og lignende.

 

 

The weather and temperatures are finally where they should be in terms of spring so I can finally get started actually styling my spring capsule. Next year, I think I’ll wait until April before going in on spring style. That’s how it is with the capsule wardrobe system – you can’t predict wind and weather, so you need to adjust it to fit real life. That’s why I like the more fluid approach, because although there are a certain framework on making a capsule wardrobe, there are really no rules. At least those you set up for yourself need to fit real life!

Vejret og temperaturerne er endelig ved at være med os, så jeg for alvor kan komme igang med min spring capsule. Næste år tror jeg dog, at jeg venter med at sætte den igang, til vi rammer april. Sådan er det lidt med capsule wardrobe systemet – man kan ikke altid forudsige vind og vejr, og så må man bare tilpasse det, så det passer. Det er derfor jeg somme tider gør brug af en lidt mere flydende tilgang til det, for selvom der er rammer for hvordan det kan gøres, så er der ingen regler. Dem der er, må du ihvertfald gerne gradbøje så det passer det virkelige liv!
