SPRING/SUMMER 2021 WOMEN'S JACKETS
MAY 05, 2021
PT TRACK JACKET, PT TRACK SHORT
At the start of the season, we kicked off the Spring/Summer 2021 collection with the Property Of campaign, which was inspired by the resiliency of New York City and its residents. The SS21 collection is out now and includes a wide range of spring jackets and fresh takes on classic styles. Our women’s pieces are especially bold, with more contemporary silhouettes and sporty designs that are perfect for getting dressed up while staying comfortable this summer.
Adapting classic military outerwear for warmer weather was an aessential part of the S/S21 collection, since the most iconic military jackets were traditionally built to withstand harsh environments and freezing temperatures. In the 1950s, the MA-1 bomber jacket was created with durable nylon on the outer shell and liner, and an insulating polyester fill; the most recent iteration of the flight jacket, the CWU-45/P, was also designed to protect against cold weather (the “CWU” in the name stands for “cold weather uniform”), with the nylon being replaced by a flame-resistant material called Nomex.
But while the use of synthetic materials made these bomber jackets less heavy than their early 20th century predecessors, lightweight versions were still necessary for pilots to do their job in warmer weather. The L-2B bomber jacket was issued to the US Air Force as a more streamlined version of the MA-1, with the removal of the inner pockets. It was designed for use in moderate temperatures of 42-64 degrees Fahrenheit. The CWU-45/P also comes in a summer jacket version, the CWU-36/P, and both serve as part of the current military uniform.
L-2B CROPPED BOMBER JACKET W
The women’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection prominently features the L-2B bomber jacket, an Alpha Industries classic, along with an update to the M-65 field jacket and a new track jacket for the PT line. To embrace sunnier days and higher temperatures, each piece is well suited to bring comfort and creative expression outdoors. Mix and match boxy fits with tight layers, or cropped hems with loose shapes - with so many styles to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
To play up a feminine silhouette with an edge, we’re offering the L-2B in a couple cropped styles. The L-2B Cropped Bomber Jacket is made of a high quality nylon that’s both water resistant and lightweight, and the jacket offers a flattering waist length crop that can be easily dressed up or down. As a black bomber jacket or in sage green, plus the iconic bright orange lining, this bomber works as a versatile addition to any spring ensemble.
For more of a statement piece that’s still casual and classic, try the varsity jacket look. Our L-2B Varsity Cropped Bomber Jacket for women is made of quality materials and boasts a fun, sporty flair, with contrast knit details along the cuffs and cropped hem. As a contemporary take on a timeless style, this bomber offers a seamless way to update any summer outfit with a sporty, all-American touch.
M-65 MOD CROPPED FIELD JACKET W
A women’s field jacket is also an essential part of any spring wardrobe. We’re refreshing the M-65 field jacket with a trendy cropped style that’s perfect for mild temperatures. The M-65 Mod Cropped Field Jacket features a boxy fit that allows for easy layering, along with a soft, garment washed cotton shell and slight fraying on the hem for a worn-in, vintage style look. Available in a year-round deep olive shade, this jacket can be comfortably worn indoors or outdoors and layered over almost anything; try it paired with high-waisted, loose jeans and a tight fitting top for a look that’s both flattering and on trend.
Plus, train harder this summer with an athletic jacket that won’t weigh you down. Our PT Track Jacket for women is water and wind resistant, perfect for most weather conditions, and features a prominent reflective chevron applique on the front and back for added visibility. The PT Track Jacket is based on the Army’s PT uniform, which guarantees this jacket’s optimal performance for athletes of all levels.
Embrace new beginnings with the endless options from our S/S21 collection. Whether you’re feeling shy or bold, yearning for comfort or for excitement, it’s extraordinarily easy to throw on a new spring jacket for a much needed refresh.
