Bomber jackets were first introduced to the public as the jackets of the aviators during the First and the Second World War. Nowadays, they are part of one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2013. Many fashion designers, such as Stella McCartney, Erdem, Loewe, Jil Sanders among others, changed the original jacket and turned it into a totally feminine and coveted piece for a woman’s wardrobe.
