Aviator Chic

The first impressions of the new Alexander Wang collection for Spring 2010 really surprised me: here I had  expected yet another grunge inspired collection with lots of black leather and sexy denim. However, Alex turned to a more sporty theme, without compromising his usual sexiness, though. Inspired by his collaboration with the GAP earlier this year, he stayed true to the all-American sportswear spirit. He used lots of khaki and grey, red and white rugby stripes and brown leather, all spiced up with some pretty hot leopard peep toe booties. There was one particular elemenent of his collection, which immediately caught my attention: aviator inspired pieces like an aviator cap, a great jacket and little applications all in caramel-brown leather.

I always had a thing for the aviator look, so I started thinking of how to work the look for the upcoming season already…

The first thing coming to my mind was this great streetstyle shoot by Garance . I love it how the Swedish girl combines the black aviator cap, with a dark green bomber jacket and a cozy scarf to create a perfect autumn version of the look.


I also found some other great pieces in true aviator spirit:
