W!ld Ch!ld | Biker Jacket Stone Washed

Received this Biker Jacket in an ultra cool W!ld Ch!ld package and was immediately lit the moment I pulled it from its black box. While the garment presented beautifully on their website it was one of those rare occurrences when it looked and felt even better in person. This Biker Jacket is super soft, inside and out. The interior lining – 30% silk + 70% polyester – is beyond silky smooth without sacrificing a stitch of durability. And, the exterior stone washed leather is far more supple than expected. You can literally feel the quality sewn into this 100% handcrafted piece.

Love the asymmetrical front zipper, a spin on the classic motorcycle jacket, which works wonders for the silhouette. Appreciate the extra length in the arms, the zipper detail in the forearms, the twin back vents, and the lay of the collar and lapels. And, the hardware on this jacket is clearly high-end – W!ld Ch!ld has done a fine job combining sophistication and rugged elegance. I absolutely love putting on this garment.

The front pockets are REAL pockets, btw. Fairly deep, in fact, rather than a trick detail. The jacket is formfitting, stylish, while hugging my curves and giving room to layer. And, the gray Stone Wash is well executed, offering a lighter, springier finish than standard black. It’s an elevated approach to the biker jacket without losing any of the functionality. Apart from – and, I am nitpicking here – having not an inner pocket, the garment is simply a Masterpiece in leather, commanding respect in any wardrobe.

KZ_K Studio | Velasca Dress

Prompted by their infatuation with the White Lotus Season 2, Jesse Keys and Karolina Zmarlak, co-founders of the luxury slow fashion brand, KZ_K Studio, planned a trip last summer that began in Taormina and led them through Italy’s historically rich country. Exploring the architectural works of Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti, visiting the Museo Abatellis in Palermo, the Pirellie Tower in Milano, and enjoying the sites and flavors of Ballaro Market in Palermo.

During their journey, they sought to uncover how modernism in Italy could progress, while at the same time stay true to the extraordinary history, architecture and art embedded within the country’s rich history. Creative Director, Karolina Zmarlak then infused their findings with KZ_K Studio’s core principles of minimalism, and multi-functional designs.

The Result is a collection that includes the Velasca Dress – elegant, in an understated way, finding equilibrium between genuine classicism and pure modernism. The piece combines the soft fluidity of pleated Georgette with structured tailoring to create an elongated column silhouette.

I find the Velasca Dress to be simply stunning ~ $2,865
