hello,

Minty Meets Munt Biker Jacket

I recently spoke to Roslyn Soloman, a Fashion & Lifestyle Editor at Sun Media about the growing athletic trend in fashion and gave my style advice on how women can effectively incorporate sportswear into their wardrobe (article can be found here). In said article, I noted that neoprene was a fantastic option for those who have a bit of trepidation introducing athletic inspired pieces into their look. Like neoprene or not, this rubbery, synthetic fabric has resurfaced in a major way this year in the industry and has come a long way since “Body Glove” in the 90s – remember them?!?! From Alexander Wang, who has paired it with luxe fabrics like chiffon, the boys at Proenza Schouler who has created sculpturally futuristic jackets with the fabric and Christian Louboutin’s neon-hued “Scuba” booties that sold out almost immediately, it is clear that the fan base for neoprene is wide spread.

So why is it making such a huge comeback? The industry may attribute it to a 90s fashion revival while others claim a fascination with the experimental possibilities of high tech fabrications, which probably prompted the fad for neoprene the first time around, or that it’s reflective of the sport silhouette that has emerged as a significant trend this year.

Whatever the reason is for it’s current relevancy, I’m 100% on board. I used to think it was not a good thing to revisit a fashion trend that’s your own vintage but this fashion forward moto jacket by my new fave Aussie label, Minty Meets Munt, made it impossible to not break my rule.  This moto is the brand’s iconic jacket for this season and if you happen to be one of those people who don’t believe in white after Labour Day, then you’re in luck because it also comes in classic black and a leopard print/black combo. Sticking to the athletic inspired theme, I’ve paired the jacket with a Nike training tank, high waisted skirt and was shot in this beautifully lit tunnel by an emerging photography talent Nathalia Allen (Styling Tip: I’ve folded the tank underneath to create the illusion of a crop top!)
