It’s time to embrace the embroidered bomber jacket
SS16 is the season of the Souvenir Jacket. An embroidered bomber, the Souvenir Jacket originated post WWII when American soldiers commissioned Japanese embroiders to customize their army jackets when they were stationed abroad. The jacket’s influence has spread into multiple variations of oriental inspired creations both by high street stores and high end designers.
From the more traditional Souvenir Jacket to a more modern high street interpretation – there are numerous options to choose from. Below are a few of our favourites, ready to add to your spring wardrobe.
