“ I always searched for the perfect buttery feeling simple leather jacket that comfortably fits me and gives me the same feeling of our dreams of me and my brother when riding our old bike. Our only need was a cool outfit. Eventually, nothing has changed since then. To me, a leather jacket is one magic piece that can fix any look, makes you feel free and gives you that rebellious confidence. The source of my differentiation from the traditions in my field is I spent so much time bringing the elegance into my works that timelessly fit into todays and tomorrows looks. “ Zelda F.
