THE BOMBER JACKET TREND


Existen prendas que en poco tiempo pasan a formar parte del fondo de armario, adquiriendo la categoría de 'imprescindible' por excelencia. Hoy me he aliado con mi amigo Gil Melendrez del blog PAPER HEART MX para hablar sobre la historia y las ventajas de la bomber, una chaqueta con etiqueta de 'atemporal' y que siempre está presente en el listado de tendencias de cada temporada por la forma en que los diseñadores la reinventan./ There are clothes that in so little time become part of your wardrobe, acquiring the category of 'must have' par excellence. Today I teamed up with my friend Gil Melendrez from PAPER HEART MX blog to talk about the history and the benefits of the bomber, a jacket classified as a 'timeless piece' and a garment that is present each season by the way designers reinvent it.

La primera aparición de la bomber fue en la Segunda Guerra Mundial -aunque algunos dicen que fue durante la Primera, cuando se comenzaron a idear formas para preservar el calor durante el vuelo- , utilizada por los pilotos británicos. De corte y mangas amplias, ajustada en los puños, cuello y cintura. Ir a la guerra de una forma inconscientemente chic fue el inicio de la historia./ The first appearance of the bomber jacket was in World War II -though some say it was during the First, when the army began to devise ways to preserve heat during the flights- used by British pilots. Wide cut with tight cuffs, neck and waist. Going to war in a chic -unconsciously- way was the beginning of the history.

La guerra de Vietnam (1955-1975) fue televisada y casi sin querer aumentó la exposición de la prenda a las masas, siendo inmortalizada por personajes de la cultura pop como James Deam en Rebel without a cause o Steve McQueen en The War Lover... Los inicios de algunas prendas que hoy vemos en cualquier Zara o H&M muchas veces darían para contar una buena película./ The Vietnam War (1955-1975) was televised and almost accidentally increased the exposure of this garment to the masses, being immortalized by pop culture characters such as James Dean in Rebel without a cause or Steve McQueen in The War Lover... The story of some items we see today at Zara or H&M could work as an argument to tell in a good movie.


Es importante saber de donde vienen las prendas, en un intento para poder generar mayor conexión y reinventar su uso. Su vigencia a lo largo de las temporadas nos presenta a la bomber jacket como una prenda que nos sirve para ir a la oficina, a la universidad y esperemos que no, a la guerra./ It actually matters where your clothes come from, in an attempt to generate a better connection and reinvent their use. Its presence in every season presents the bomber jacket as a piece that can be worn to go to the office, to the university and hopefully not, to war.

Lisas, metálicas, estampadas, etc. Gil nos muestra cómo rockea su bomber jacket con camisas, camisetas y jeans en diversos colores. ¿Tú cómo rockeas tu bomber?/ In solid colors, metallics or with patterns. Gil shows us how he rocked out this bomber jacket with shirts, t-shirts and jeans in different colors. How do you rock out your bomber?

    1. Para el verano también son la chaqueta ideal, aunque ten cuidado que después hay unas que son como para entretiempo y te pueden llegar a asar, claro... depende del material con el que estén hechas. En ZARA siempre hay opciones muy lindas ;)

  5. Hola Pablo!

    So happy we share this love for bomber jackets. Thanks to your info in the beginning, now I know how this trend appeared on the scene.
    I find Gil's bomber super cool because of the color and the way he styled it.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my new post.
    I was thinking we should switch for Halloween since you love it and would like to celebrate it in America. I wouldn't mind being in Barcelona because I'm not into Halloween. What do you say?! :)

  6. I think I knew that bomber jackets originated from era of WW2 but I didn't know precise details...it's always fun to learn the history behind some trendy item. The history of leather jacket is also interesting- when it first appeared it was worn by pilots and bikers and now it is embraced by everyone...just like bomber jacket. I do love bomber jackets.

    Your friend looks very stylish in this outfit.

  9. Hola Pablo! It was so interesting to get to know the history of bomber jackets - I've never thought that the first ones were worn during Second World War. I totally agree with you that nowadays, you can find bomber jacket in so many styles, so I'm sure that everyone is able to find something for themselves easily. What's more, I really like the results from your collaboration with your friend - the photoshoot and you did terrific job on editing those photos, I love it :)
