The Biker Portraits

If you've been reading my blog for a while now you'll know how big a fan of AllSaints I am, especially when it comes to their leather jackets - I'm yet to find a store that comes close to touching their vast, delicious range of buttery leathers. This was just one of the reasons I was over the moon to get involved in their Biker Portraits project, the second being that the whole project revolves around music as well. With musicians and bad-ass biker jackets being synonymous for so long it just makes so much SENSE. I chose the Alford biker jacket, which I think might be the most beautiful leather I've ever laid my eyes on; someone over on my Instagram appropriately deemed it, 'the dream jacket'. The leather's all crackled giving it a worn-in, well travelled look, but nice and stiff at the same time, allowing you to wear it in and mould it to your shape in the manner of a little leathery second skin. The sleeves also zip-off, so you can also wear the jacket as a leather gilet, or just with the zips peeking open to expose a little bit of shoulder (saucy) as you fancy - you really can't go wrong with a bit of multi-purpose jacket, can you?

You can get check out the Biker Portrait gallery here, which is filled with lots of cool photos of musicians, accompanied by little snippets of their favourite gig memories. I sat for ages trying to narrow mine down and ended up settling on Amy Winehouse on Paolo Nutini. Then I remembered how good Seasick Steve was live. It's all just too much, I honestly think it's one of the hardest questions ever. If anyone has any amazing gig stories, or knows hands-down what their best gig ever was then please share in the comments below, I'm all ears!

Adore this outfit! Love the jacket - love all the little details and gorgeous hardware!
Soo jealous you've seen Seasick Steve live, my sister went to see him and she said he's amazing! I think my best gig moment may have to have been when I saw Jack White. He was performing Ball and Biscuit which is my favourite White Stripes song, he was halfway through the ripping guitar solo in the middle, fell backwards over an amp, and still kept playing while lying flat on his back! He's the ultimate performer!

All the leather is perfect together! Sometimes a lot of leather can look harsh, but you really pulled it off! Looks amazing :)
