Aviator Jackets AW10 Top Trend

The Aviator Jacket is enjoying a reincarnation this AW10, with consumers flocking to high street and designer stores to get this must-have item for the season ahead.

Featured heavily in the Burberry Campaign and a scene-stealer at their Burberry Cadet Girls show at London Fashion Week, the Top Gun Jackets featured richly-coloured, luxurious lambskin-lining... and when the models sashayed down the catwalk - everyone was hooked and everyone took note.

Having been re-worked and released for mass consumption, these hero jackets now to perfectly compliment other key looks of the season; teamed with the high-end tailoring trend, the flight jacket looks reminiscent of it's original 30's era, creating the iconic style of Amelia Earhart when paired with high waisted trousers and a chiffon blouse...

Flying Jackets have also inspired micro-trends, kicking off a fascination for all things shearling and leather. Look no further than prominent high street chains and you'll find racks of shearling lined boots and leather trousers, perfect for the crisp, wintry weather ahead!

The most sought after creations sold out mid-August as, on the fashion calendar, seasons move forward each year; but fear not, as design houses like Acne will be meeting demand and releasing more stock within weeks. High street favourites, like Topshop and M&S should also follow suit, In fact the Topshop Aviator Jacket is now one of the most requested fashion jackets for AW10.

With the creative director of Burberry, Christopher Bailey declaring that he wants "to continue the feel of the aviator collection" into their next season of designs, the appeal of Flying Jackets is set to endure.
