Ever since I was a teenager and watched the movie Easy Rider, I must admit I have had a penchant for motorcycles, hippie and biker chic fashion, and the open desert. What makes motorcycles so appealing to me? the thrill of riding fast, the freedom and lawlessness it entails, and the ability to wear boots that kick ass!
I loved the characters’ style in Easy Rider and I guess it’s no surprise that top fashion labels, such as Chanel and Free People, have drawn inspiration from the classic film.
This is one of my all-time favorite fashion photographs from Free People’s 2010 catalog inspired by Easy Rider. I just love the air of raw, sexy seductiveness in the pic.
My own “biker chic look” was inspired by the movie. Unlike Free People, there is a little less fringe and lace and a whole lot of leather! Thanks to our friend, Marty, for letting me test out his sexy ride.
