Thinking Outside the Leather Box with Pelle Pelle Outerwear

  • The only bounds for lux detailing on a Pelle Pelle jacket is where the sleeves end. One statement jacket new for fall has over 9,000 studs, all lovingly hand-applied.
  • Ladies, watch out for studs and rhinestones on Pelle Pelle newly-launched women’s handbag line.
  • Double-leather appliqué? Loves it.

Leather jackets are continuing their reign into 2010, and Detroit-based leatherwear Pelle Pelle is the cream of the crop. The brand which has been coloring the fashion world for the past 30 years, presented its amazing collection of iced-out leather jackets. SoJones was definitely wowed by Pelle Pelle’s interpretation of the outdated word of ‘BLING’ and made it current, relevant and most importantly, fresh.

Pelle Pelle hasn’t just blinged out their collection, they have had some eye-catching moments on the silver screen as well. The brand was featured in the 2009 biopic “Notorious”, which chronicles the life of a major hip-hop artist: Biggie Smalls. Recently, Pelle Pelle was also honored by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, who wore Pelle Pelle’s custom design during their induction into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.  Jade of America’s Next Top Model also showed love for Pelle Pelle’s women’s jacket.
