Acclaimed German photographer Horst A. Friedrichs concentrates on an extraordinary design classic: the leather motorcycle jacket, which developed in the 1950s from being merely functional outerwear to become the blazing symbol of the era’s youth revolt. James Dean wore one, as did Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper. Since then, the myth has continued to flourish, so that, to this day, leather jackets are one of the few outfits with true cult status. They have soul. They have character and they are worn with pride; they are painted, embellished, embroidered and enhanced with studs and patches. Since decades, Lewis Leathers, the legendary British manufactory for leather motorcycle jackets, has brought together especially attractive and exceptional examples for their unique and comprehensive collection of vintage leather jackets. The artistic photos by Horst A. Friedrichs make these available to the larger public for the first time and provide authentic insight into this highly exceptional lifestyle.
