The best autumn bomber jackets

bomber jackets

Bomber jackets at Marni, Jonathan Saunders and Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Far removed from their aviation roots, bomber jackets have become a fashion staple over the years thanks to their practicality, comfort and ability to give instant nonchalance to whoever wears them.

Popularised by the many leading Hollywood characters who have sported them; James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, Ewen McGregor in Trainspotting or Ryan Gosling in Drive, as well as through covering the shoulders of hip hop stars and athletes alike, the appeal of the jacket lies in how it can be changed to suit the needs of the wearer.

For the style set, the bomber has this season been crafted from luxe fabrics like satin and lace, as well as embroidered or embellished by the likes of Marni and Jonathan Saunders for a seriously decadent take on this perma-trend.
