Finally, I was able to get my hands on this cutout faux leather jacket by Drei Soriano, which I blogged about here: Philippine Fashion Week: Drei Soriano.
The biker jacket came right off the runway. A little big, but I think the fit is still great.
A friend pointed out that the piece reminded him of the X-Men, but I declined to wear it when I watched the latest film. (I actually wore denim on denim, in shorts, but more about that soon.)
I am wearing the jacket with the Thelxinoe necklace from the Hardware collection of my Bosquejo accessories.
Incidentally, the stylist who shot the editorial for Drei's Holiday 2011 lookbook, also borrowed the same necklaces to match the piece. I actually love how leather matches my Hardware accessories, matching edge with edge.
Here is the back, which I think is good enough for Banshee. Notice the zippered sleeves.
Though I think both the jacket and the necklace can be toned down by softer pieces, they look made for each other. As if there were only one way to go.
