Abstract:

Ever since Marlon Brando slouched across the screen wearing a black leather jacket in The Wild One, the mixture of animal magnetism and sexual aberration which the leather jacket manages to convey has ensured it a best-selling place in the catalogue of cool. Using more than a hundred evocative photographs The Black Leather Jacket traces the popularity of this emblem of macho meanness through the Hell's Angels of the forties; the original punks and beats of the fifties (James Dean, Brando, Elvis); the counter-culture of the sixties (the Weatherman, Electric Dylan); the sexual excesses of the seventies (S & M, Al Pacino, Christopher Street gays); the punk explosion, begun by the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and the Clash; the heavy metal and rock groups of the eighties; to the present day where the black leather jacket is a potent part of 21st century consciousness and is constantly adopted by high fashion and street style.
