Belstaff Bomber Featured on the Big ScreenI wasn't too excited when I first saw this jacket as one of Jenna Lyon's Picks. However, J.Crew did an excellent job styling the Belstaff Bomber in their catalog & online images. As for the price tag... well, it's a tad (okay, more than a tad, a wallop) too much for my wallet. :)
In the recent film debut, Amelia, Hilary Swank takes on the role of Amelia Earhart where she is featured in a leather bomber designed by the famous Belstaff—who collaborated with the film on key wardrobe pieces. Belstaff’s Executive Vice President, Franco DiCarlo, sees this leather bomber as “…marrying function and style in a way that finicky fashion has embraced through the years…”
We are now excited to report that a version of this leather Bomber Jacket—now in black—is available exclusively at J.Crew—and truly can’t be found anywhere else. Our Belstaff Leather Bomber Jacket, 22896, $1195, is available at jcrew.com, in our Aspen store and will arrive at the Collection store this week.
What are your thoughts on the bomber jacket? Do you like or dislike the style? Have you seen the jacket in person? If so, please share. :)
