Public School’s Fall 2014 Menswear Show delivered several innovative examples of layering, most notably pairing a double-rider leather jacket with a lengthy overcoat (another trend this season), the perfect combination for chilly nights out. Choosing a fitted leather is essential to minimizing bulk: Saint Laurent’s Signature Motorcycle Jacket is a go-to for rocker style, while Ann Demeulemeester’s glittery-but-not-gaudy Gold Biker Vest eliminates unwieldy sleeves entirely. Keep the outer piece simple with Dolce & Gabbana’s Classic Coat or Fendi’s Classic Single Breasted Coat and let the unique combination speak for itself. Who says you can’t be well insulated AND turn heads?
