Competition: win a grey leather moto jacket by The Arrivals

For our latest competition, Dezeen has teamed up with fashion brand The Arrivals to offer one reader the chance to win a women’s leather jacket in grey.

Clo is a jacket made from a light-coloured leather with matching poly lining and metal details. The piece has a moto construction with its asymmetrical opening and silver hardware.

The jacket was designed by The Arrivals, a fashion label based in New York City and led by co-founders Jeff Johnson and Kal Vepuri.

The piece hits at hip level and has various zipper pouches, including two parallel pockets horizontally over the chest and a smaller pouch for coins secured with a flap.

New Zealand lamb leather was selected for the construction, as the material is known for its lightweight durability and softness, making the jacket suitable for all seasons.

“Clo is a streamlined all-season moto rooted in minimalism with a hint of irreverence,” said the brand.

Relating to its minimalist interpretation, the jacket has no epaulettes or flaps on the shoulders, but still incorporates various silvery studs to reference the classic moto shape.

“The leather jacket started as a military piece until the first moto was designed for Harley Davidson in 1928,” said Johnson in an interview with Dezeen. “It serves a purpose of functionality, durability and ergonomics, but in a cultural context, it has become much more, becoming a symbol of counter-culture in the 1950s and 1960s.”

Many of The Arrivals products are titled after Germanic-Scandinavian names or famous architects and designers, with other pieces including Lautner, Møller and Larsen.

This ties to Johnson’s past experience as an architect, which informs much of the fashion brand’s output. Its series of pop-up stores in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco last year were minimal spaces that included metallic surfaces and single-colour accents.

“As a former architect, I have always been obsessed with balanced design, material and functionality,” he said. “When I decided I wanted to explore a new professional path, I knew that I wanted to continue to apply those interests.”

The Clo jacket comes with a lifetime warranty, part of The Arrival’s commitment to “foreverwear” – a term coined by the brand to advocate its craftsmanship and high-quality materials.

Clo can be purchased from The Arrivals website for $695 (approximately ‎£520). For this competition, one winner will be selected at random, and be able to choose their preferred size – ranging from extra small to extra large.

Competition closes 27 June 2018. One winner will be selected at random and notified by email, and his or her name will be published at the top of this page.
