Women's Vintage Jackets

Like all the best things in style, the secret of a great jacket is to make it look easy.  From fiendishly complicated patterns, cut and sewn to perfection, a jacket can sculpt, distort and enhance your body shape and give you effortless chic style.  From cropped jackets to box jackets, blazers to double breasted jackets, denim jackets to bomber jackets, designers have taken great pleasure in beguiling our eyes with the neatest form of outwear there is. 

Though tailors are often associated with menswear, women’s figures offer a far more interesting proposition when it comes to style and form.  Audrey Hepburn made a bold decision to insist on commissioning the young Hubert de Givenchy to design her wardrobe for the film Sabrina in 1954.  When, in the film, we see her first moment at the station on returning from Paris, the impact of that fabulous double breasted jacket perfectly expressed her character’s new persona and style.  This chic jacket follows the height of women’s tailoring achieved in the 1930s and 1940s which rejected the shapeless styles of the 1920s.  Since then, designers such as Yves Saint Laurent in the 1970s looked back to these decades for inspiration and perfectly shaped women’s tailoring.

However, jackets are not all about formality and structure and it is here that American style classic set the precedent.  Nothing evokes the rebel spirit of the second half of the 20th century better than the denim jacket.  Though denim itself has a long, complex and fascinating history, and though there had been others before, it was Levi’s 1962 ‘Type III’ denim jacket which became the blue print for this garment. Whether you associate them with westerns of the 70s, punks of the 80s or even Madonna, the denim jacket is a timeless wardrobe rebel.  Equally the vintage bomber jacket offers the perfect antidote to tailoring with its cool associations.  From its aviation beginnings, through varsity teams and cheerleaders to the street style of the hip hop noughties, this puffed shape lends itself to a myriad of softer fabrics and the bomber jacket has often become a vehicle for slogans, humour and loud pattern and bold prints.  Whether you go oversized or fitted, vintage bomber jackets can add an edge to almost any look.  Whether you are looking for the rebel or hunting for a classic, shop our Open for Vintage jacket collection to discover masterful examples from every era.
