Took these shots of a model less than a year ago: February 2010 fashion week, Somerset House. It just occurred to me: at the time, we hadn't yet seen Burberry's show, Christopher Bailey had yet to introduce us to the idea of wearing a men's style Shearling/leather aviator jacket over pretty dresses. It hadn't yet filtered down to every high street chain. We hadn't yet been so saturated with Aviator Overload that unless those of us who were fashion forward enough to be rocking the look in early spring we were too burnt out to care, by the time the autumn rolled around.
Just curious: did anyone buy or wear an aviator jacket A/W 2010? If so, please send an 8x10 glossy to: email@example.com. I'm trying to think of another trend whose star burnt so bright in 2010 and was so quickly extinguished, but none comes to mind.
