Icarus | Flight Jacket

$200

In Ancient Greece, Icarus was the son of the master craftsman, Daedalus. After both were imprisoned, Daedalus created wings out of wax and feathers to escape. Before their flight, Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly too high, because the sun would melt his wings, nor too low, for the sea's dampness would wet his feathers. Daedalus and Icarus took flight. They were focused and maintained their course. That was until Icarus' pride overtook him. All it took was a split second. He decided to outdo his father and flew too close to the sun. His wings now melting, Icarus plunged to his death. The Icarian Sea and the island of Icaria were named after Icarus to serve as a reminder of his demise.

Made from unencumbered premium and luxurious full-grain sheepskin leather, a detachable true sheep fur collar, ribbed cuffs, elastic waist and deep brown and black colours; our take on the classic flight jacket is the one of the most pure jackets of our collection. It is a true example of how great leather can be. We wanted to make a jacket you could see being a staple in your closet for decades to come. Imbued with Icarus' essence, let this jacket be a reminder that sometimes, the only way to be free from your prison, is to get out of your comfort zone and to take a risk. When you do, don't get too high when things are going well and too low when they are going bad. Stay humble and stay confident. Good things will happen.
