Over the past few weeks, I've had the pleasure of becoming personally acquainted with the outerwear label The Arrivals. I've been following them on Instagram for the longest time, coveting their incredible leather jackets and cold weather accessories from across the screen. Their brand is clean and minimal, with a focus on superior craftsmanship, functional form & fit, and the very best materials. A decidedly New York brand, it embodies the attention to utilitarianism and quality that defines this city's sartorial aesthetic. In a sentence: right up my alley.
I was super excited to have the chance to shoot the killer RUF bonded moto jacket - a performance piece par excellence, it features waterproof (yep) bonded Italian leather with modular, removable shearling fur collar. Needless to say, it further proves (my personal) adage - a leather jacket can change your life.
