Why We Want It Now: Quilted Jackets

  • 1 of 14

    A throwback to Karl Lagerfeld’s F/W 91 collection for Chanel—where he juxtaposed a leather iteration with a sweet pink dress—we’ve spotted modern renditions, both on and off the runways, that have us yearning for one to call our own. More texturally interesting than a fail-safe leather moto, the quilted jacket will be our next seasonal investment. From DKNY's cowl neck jacket to a stylish civilian's red moto version, read on for all the reasons this piece is on our radar and shop our favorite selections.
