Celebrity Street Style

The Burberry Leather Biker Jacket

Celebs have been keeping warm with the essential high-fashion biker jacket by Burberry Prorsum. The British luxury fashion brand showed many versions of the leather biker at their Spring 2011 show. Most of the jackets seen on their runway have been favored by stylists and stars around the world. You may have seen the studded biker from this post I did, which was worn by Britney Spears for her 'Til the world ends' music video, Emma Roberts for Elle magazine and Cindy Crawford for Vogue Mexico.

The black leather jacket featured here has quilted panels, multiple zip detail, press-stud fastenings and zip-up sleeves. This heavy-weight runway piece can be worn over just about anything, as shown below.

Keira Knightly paired the double-breasted jacket with a burgundy top, grey loose fitting pants, a tan bag and brogues.

Style Icon Alexa Chung wears her biker with cropped black trousers, a polka dot blouse, black scarf and studded oxford shoes. Her kitten print bag is by Longchamp.

On the Burberry Prorsum runway, Australian model Julia Nobis wore the jacket with a feminine belted dress.

Kate Bosworth styled her jacket with a simple gray top, black skirt and leggings. She accessorized with black buckled boots and a Derek Lam handbag.

I like Sienna Miller's look best. She wore the quilted jacket over a heart print t-shirt from her own brand, Twenty8Twelve, and skinny jeans. Red buckled boots by Chloe and a Prada bag completed her look.

The 100% leather jacket retails for a staggering R24 181. In South Africa, you could buy 3 cows with that amount!
