This September at Colette Paris sees the reinvention of the 'Perfecto' - otherwise known as the Biker Jacket, which is most commonly associated with first of all biker bad boys Marlon Brando and James Dean in the 50's but which has been about since 1928 when it was first introduced by Schott NYC.

Now the staple of any fashionista with an edge, including our very own Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, it is having a makeover with a host of new materials and interpretations courtesy of some of the most influential designers around including: Gareth Pugh; William Rast and Yves Saint Laurent for men with Balmain; Hussein Chalayan and Louise Gray amongst others for women.

Also available will be two limited edition pairs of shoes inspired by the Perfecto and designed by the original French ballet shoes company Repetto, which are exclusively at Colette from September.
