Biker Jacket

Abstract [en]

Staring to explore the fashionable biker jacket from the fifties lead to the discover that it hasn’t changed much since its origin. The stereotyped biker jacket with the genuine black leather and raw details is an impact model and thought the jacket no longer is worn while riding a bike is it still presenting an image of a rebellious life. The aim of this work is to explore our traditional view of the biker jacket through material and shape. Discovering that the bikers riding position has big similarities with a standing cow gave background to the material used in the classical jackets, the cow. A living animal, a material that once lived. To use the cows and the biker’s upper body as a model, recreating its shape into biker jacket’s to develop the shape of the biker jacket further. By experimenting with untraditional non-textile materials instead of using leather hopefully develop the traditional view of a jacket and bring alternative material and construction forward. Conclusion of the work is that when the materials with strong associations are mixed with the biker shape the materials take over and the definition of the biker jacket becomes more complex. New questions that has arise could be the use of other technical materials, what happens when giving the jacket other functions, is it still a biker jacket then.
