In the menswear world there are trends that come and go (stripes, prints and safari style) and there are others that are so classic that they remain. Each season is reinterpreted in new ways (the double breasted suit, bomber jackets and the like). Biker style with its leather jackets and worn denim is one of the latter trends.
Alpinestars have done just that. Based in Italy, the 1963 founded brand started with leather craft and went on to develop a revolutionary boot that was stylish and athletic at the same time. That boot would go on to become an archetype for motorcross protection. Fast-forward several decades, and the brand are still making innovative and practical pieces that evoke timeless rebel style that is at the heart of biker fashion.
Dubbed the number one motorsports apparel brand in the world, Alpinestars design clothes for authentic sportsmen and fans too; pieces that look great on and off the track and that are affordable as well. For spring/summer 2015 the collection combines the beloved biker style with global streetwear trends.
The collection features heritage motorsports imagery that is printed on high quality cotton T shirts, embroidered snapback baseball caps and lightweight bomber jackets.
The latest collection shows that Alpinestars know what they are doing when it comes to sophisticated and functional biker style. They will be out first port of call, should we ever decide to don a helmet and speed off speed off into the sunset. From £35.00 and available online at Alpinestars.
