Style: Flight School

 In Feature, Style

This season launches a cockpitperfect incarnation of the military trend for him and her.


Sure, a peacoat is classic and pays homage to the military look that may prove to live on eternally, but new service-driven outerwear has landedand is undoubtedly dominating. Led by Burberrys Christopher Bailey, the FW10 uniform-inspired invasion was defined by runways heavy in utility and leather jackets, oft shearling- or faux fur-lined, that had been given the RAF treatment. A brigade of aviators and aviatrixes seemingly channeling Biggles and Amelia Earhart stormed fashion territory in heavily buckled, wide-collared
jackets, and simultaneously, a new trend took fl ight. While a traditional bomber will work through winter, the latest takes are more rugged, skewing fl ak, and house self-contained layers that make them as practical for cold weather months as chicthough, ironically, they may tend too bulky to actually wear on an aircraft.
