It is obvious that motorcycling has become the "in" thing, not only for politicians and stars, but specially for the "haute-couture". Last year, we've already seen a lot of designer brands showing motorcycle jackets as a fashion statement, but now they're going further.
Names such as Gucci, Chanel, Dior and DNKY etc are all coming out with "serious" motorcycle wear. The Chanel Motorcycle Boots pictured on your left has lambs wool inside, reinforced, and cost a meager 600 Euros (744 USD). But for that, you get a Chanel..... (over my dead body).
Seriously, apart from some stars that like to show themselves off on an occasional motorcycle, I can not see any real biker wearing haute-couture motorcycle gear. Can you imagine paying 600 Euros for a pair of boots, and you get some oil on them....
I know I ride a BMW Motorcycle, but enough is enough !
