Souvenir Jackets | The Edit 

The silk embroidered bomber – souvenir jacket – is a trend that you should be paying attention to.

In this post, I’ve pulled out a mix of souvenirs to meet any budget.

I’m wearing:

Originating in Japan after World War II, The souvenir jacket (Japanese: sukajan) was originally commissioned by American soldiers to commemorate their time spent overseas.

But 70 years after their creation, Louis Vuitton, Pringle and Saint Laurent have all championed the trend; with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele going big with it this year in his Asian-infused ready to wear collection.

But the souvenir isn’t just for the big designers, with loads of high street and online retailers creating their very own silk bombers.


The edit:

How to wear:

  • Layer a darker bomber over an oxford shirt with chinos or black jeans for a smarter, evening look.


  • Bright colours and patterns are great for spring/summer.
  • Wear the bomber one size bigger with fitted jeans for a more urban look.
  • Keep it fuss-free with a plain coloured shirt or t-shirt.
  • Avoid a car crash of textures, colours and patterns.
  • Less is more with the souvenir
