This is the brand new and rather beautiful Leather Eclipse Motorcycle Jacket from Spidi and LA based Aether Apparel. Taking inspiration from Spidi’s custom MotoGP leathers worn by riders like Ducati’s Cal Crutchlow, the two brands have joined together to produce a jacket that:
“Combines a refined modern aesthetic with the finest in old-world leatherwork”
Made with a premium leather shell and yarn-dyed cotton lining, the Eclipse uses hand selected natural materials like cowhide leather that have been prepared in traditional Italian fashion. Box quilting on the upper torso and arms offers a subtle nod to vintage styles of the past, while the clean lines and piecing lend to the jacket’s distinctly modern look. For protective padding, Aether incorporated Spidi CE-certified armor into the elbows, shoulders, and back.
This is one stunning jacket and sure to be an immense success. Check out this awesome video which documents the making of the jacket, the creative and design process and how the collaboration evolved to produce the final Eclipse jacket that you see here. Priced at $1,195.00, available in sizes 0-5 and in Jet Black only.
