We really wish we could call this post "Ring Around the Collar" but that would be a false and malicious fashion statement! This Gianfranco Ferre jacket may feature a slew of fetish-tastic rings but they are on the front of the jacket's border. We all know Ferre was a master with leather. Remember that typical late 80s/early 90s silhouette of his tough leather pants with a massive gazar blouse? Well this Ferre jacket is tough on top and features a generous shoulder and sculptured midsection for a feminine and futuristic looking shape. Although it's more of a bolero than a jacket (it does not close in front), the jacket isn't cropped like most boleros (readers should know we are on a bolero kick of late), but rather skims the hips. This is one of those everyday pieces that can be worn in the day with jeans or at night with a sexy dress that shows off your legs. If you have fallen for Balmain-ia (haven't we all), you will get how a strong shouldered jacket is a must-have for your wardrobe. Thankfully, this jacket will cost less than a pair of Balmain jeans!
