Being in your 20’s and living in London means that disposable income isn’t the easiest thing to come by but proximity to all the fancy shops in West London means that my lusting after unattainable goodies is ever more pronounced. After Acne Studios released their beautiful Velocite Shearling Aviator jacket I started foaming at the mouth… but then I didn’t have a spare £2,000 to spend on a jacket! In true high-street style Topshop followed suit with some pretty pricey alternatives in their Boutique range, they then released a budget friendly version which was an immediate sell-out.
I tracked down a Acne via Topshop aviator jacket dupe (sadly sold out now) for a fraction of the price – £50 – the interior is a gorgeously soft textured faux fur, the main fabric isn’t leather but it is buttery soft and a great fit. What’s not to love?
