..be warned, can you handle this level of sexy leather at tea time on a Monday? OK fine. You asked for it.
Behold, and cue the angelic choir:
This, my friends, is Topshop's take on Phillip Lim's iconic contrast-sleeved leather jacket from last season. Oh, and it is GOOD!
Though it lacks the trench cuffs and washed leather/battered effect, and it's a bit shorter and decidedly more biker than the original, this is by no means a shoddy interpretation. Had I not just blown £700 of my Net-a-Porter win on an Acne Rita I would be tempted to save up and buy this badboy like, um, NOW.
Phillip Lim's original:
One of my major contenders in my Net a Porter win, the Phillip Lim jacket still haunts me wherever I go.
Whenever I see it online, for example here on the gorgeous Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast, my heart does a wee somersault of regret at the fact I didn't blow the full £5,000 of the win on leather jackets. Excessive? Nah... Worth it. I mean LOOK at it!
Uhhhhft. My heart breaks.
Get the Toppers one NOW for winter. Contrast sleeves/leather sleeves are going to be humongous.
