Burger and I took advantage of the +16 degree weather today by heading over to the Sunday Up Market off Brick Lane to do a bit of browsing. Not only did I find a rad pair of sunglasses for only £8.00 that were very reminiscent of the Cutler and Gross pair I borrowed for fashion week, but Burger also found this super lux vintage brown pony skin jacket. And it was only £10.00!!! 앗싸!
Fur can be tough for a guy to pull off, but pony skin is another matter entirely. There's something rich and luxurious about it while retaining a strictly masculine edge all without coming across as too glam. I've actually been noticing pony skin all over the runways during mens FW12 fashion weeks this season, mostly in a deep black hue.
In London, Baartmans and Siegel (left) as well as Topman Design (right) presented a bold pony skin jacket. I especially love the biker jacket by Topman.
Elsewhere, Diesel Black Gold (left) presented handsome double breasted pony skin jackets in navy, while Emporio Armani outfitted a few of their models in wrap cardigan-like pony skin jackets.
If you can't wait until next winter to get in on the FW12 trends, I've found a few FW11 pieces that I would be very happy to have in my closet. Sadly the Mugler Pony Skin Buckled Creepers on the left are sold out at London select shop LN-CC, but they also this Haerfest Calfskin and Fur Backpack which would be great for carrying my laptop to and from work every day.
At Oki-ni they also have a few pony skin shoes. On the left are a pair of cherry red Dr Martens Hair on Horsey 3 Eye Derby Shoes next to a more casual pair of Diet Butcher Slim Skin High Top Sneakers.
