Who else can create a sleek feminine look like New York’s husband and wife team, Mike and Chris? The designer duo have developed a cult following with their signature lambskin leather jackets, quirky detailing and exceptional tailoring. The success lies in a melded chic and street fashion that is both laid back and stylishly edged. Shoulder flaps, exposed zippers and angled front pockets all add character to the supple black, lightweight leather. Mike and Chris are the prime example of why underground is always better: even if celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Rachel Bilson, Cameron Diaz and Laura Conrad choose to wear these classy pieces. Hit up Singer 22 or Blueheaven Boutique if you want one.
