Behind The Scenes : JR Leather

/Behind the scenes of JR Leather in BALI
Given I travel to Bali so often it seemed natural that I would begin working with suppliers there, as they work on a more bespoke level than Hong Kong and China. The Lucia leather jacket has been one of the main-stays of my collection since the beginning of the JR brand, so I set about finding a small supplier who could replicate the exact standards I have, and allow me to introduce a greater colour selection. That's where Pudi and the rest of the team come in.
Super fine 100% Leather Jacket in a classic motorcycle cut. Paneling and curved design lines, strategically enhance a feminine shape. NOTE: When you first put on this jacket it should fit the body very snuggly (Especially across the bust) for the first few wears. The leather is so soft and fine that in no-time it moulds to your body for a perfect fit. A FURTHER NOTE: The leather in the Lucia was specifically chosen with a finish that wears very quickly to a soft patina just like a favourite pair of slippers might.
The leather in the Lucia is so fine that it makes this the perfect transeasonal Jacket. It has a sensational, bohemian elegance as shown with a Luxury T and Jeans.
The design goal with this jacket was to create a style that was elegant enough to wear with more conservative items to work or dressed down for weekend casual chic.
