Black Leather Jacket by Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten Produces la Crème de la Black Leather Jacket

No one thinks “biker chic” when conjuring up the work of Dries Van Noten — until now.

The grittiness of that American subculture is exactly what the Belgian designer channeled in his, very personal, interpretation of the classic black leather jacket, as per orders of Christies and Barneys New York.

High brow auction house Christie’s teamed up once again with the luxury retailer, this time to celebrate Barneys new Downtown location, with proceeds going to the LGBT Community Center and White Columns. The title? Christie’s Black Leather Jacket Auction, naturally.

And Dries hit it out of the park with, both, an homage to the biker origins of the jacket — complete with hand-embroidered patches — as well as a heartfelt tribute to Paris out of respect for the recent atrocities in that great fashion city. Devastatingly cool.
