Leather jackets are both robust and feminine; they combine sex appeal with a hint of adventure. On no other jacket do the marks of time look so nonchalant and authentic – women's leather jackets get more and more personalised and individual every time you wear them. Regardless of whether it's a sophisticated blouson of lamb skin or a leather-look woman's jacket, casual with a pair of coloured denim jeans and a laid back V-neck jumper, or as an exciting contrast to a soft dress and ankle booties – leather jackets adapt fantastically to our own individual styles and are tailor-made to become our best-loved, long-term favourites.
The coming days will be full of work for you. Together with your sister you've finally fulfilled your dream and have opened your own catering firm. You look to the future full of enthusiasm and thousands of ideas. But first you need to sort out the final few details for the large kitchen and office premises. You meet up with your sister on the Wednesday dressed in a pair of vintage jeans, booties and a classic biker-style leather jacket with its traditional zips to take a trip to the catering suppliers in the new company van – you need a load of matching baking trays and a few cast-iron pans. Your sister, in a pair of skinny jeans and a short, waisted leather jacket with stand-up collar, gets some information about some of the things on offer whilst you take inspiration from the selection and gather ideas. Well equipped you finally head off again to send out a few more offers to potential customers.
On Thursday you almost oversleep. As quickly as possible you jump into a pair of Chinos, a V-neck jumper and an uncomplicated leather-look blouson and charge down to the kitchen where that tradesman is already waiting to install a new extractor hood. Once that's installed your new kitchen suite is complete and your business premises are ready to begin large-scale operations. Your sister walks in wearing a soft, feminine suede jacket over a slim-line woollen dress just after the tradesman leaves. She's been to the printers to pick up a box of flyers and a list of various buffet suggestions. You sit down together in the office over a cup of coffee and go through your schedule for the coming two days one more time – tomorrow you're due to go to an exclusive cocktail party at a private apartment.
On Friday you're out in the van at the crack of dawn to collect fruit, vegetables and fresh seafood from the wholesaler. It's a cool morning. The sun isn't even up as you get into the van, you in your fur-lined leather-look coat, your sister in a soft leather jacket with fleece collar on top of an oversized knitted jumper. Your tiredness quickly vanishes as you dive into the loud, lively atmosphere of the wholesale market halls. You check the offers, seek out the perfect ingredients and, happy and successful, you set off for the kitchen two hours later. Mini quiche, marinated red snapper, lamb meatballs with fresh mint and sugary sweet petit fours in every colour of the rainbow – you're almost on the point of exhaustion by the time you set up the buffet at your thrilled customer's place after a 14-hour day in jeans and stretch blouse below a slim line leather-look biker jacket – but you can't wait for the next order.
