Luxe Models on Kate Moss and Leather

Kate Moss plus leather equals fashion dream. Actually Kate Moss plus anything equals fashion dream; Luxe Models cannot deny that the supermodel, bad-girl, loving mother and wife to hot hot rock star could pull off a bin-bag-sarong. And, no, this is not a hyperbole, this is genuine fact. So, where were we? Ah yes, Kate Moss wrapped in bad-ass leather and a teeny tiny denim mini skirt, draped across a motorbike. Classic. This is the image of the oldest motorbike brand, Matchless’, campaign for their new clothing line.

Involving leather jackets that range between £900-1,300, these motorbike accessories are not for the feint hearted. Luxe Models staff have been drooling over the collection all morning, and we’re not sure if it’s the fact that Kate Moss is wearing one of said jackets gaping open with nothing underneath, and yes she’s still got it, or if it’s the tantalising leather jacket itself; one of the longest-lasting fashion-staples of all time.

Kate was photographed by Terry Richardson, lavishly strewn across Marlon Brando’s motorbike from The Wild One; dayum! 

Michele Malenotti, Matchless’ marketing and business expansion director, said, "We are delighted to be working with Kate Moss on this first Matchless advertising campaign for this new era of the brand. We feel her spirit and personality fit the brand perfectly and this is clearly conveyed in the campaign." And here at Luxe Models we couldn’t agree more. Kate Moss sums up everything about the iconic leather jacket look, from her don’t-give-a-damn attitude, to her rock star lifestyle, to her casual dismissal of negative media attention; the model-turned-mother is impossible to bring down. 

If you’re inspired by this new collection then Luxe Models has a few handy tips for you about how to pull off a leather jacket:

  • ·         With skinny jeans: go completely Kate Moss and rock the casual biker look

  • ·         With your LBD: the perfect way to dress down a little black dress

  • ·         With Levi cut-off shorts: staple festival wear  

  • ·         With a pencil skirt: go for a 50s look

Until next time...
