As we are slightly plunging into the crispness of bleak autumn days, the blouson is the season’s first mandatory buy. Through their neony editorial, photographer Martin Kula and stylist Oliver Rauh explore the simplicity and richness of this piece of clothing. From its variety of styles, to the people who worn it, including the ideologies it has conveyed, the item has a lot to narrate. Between British working class youths’ Harrington, to preppy American graduates’ favourite : the teddy jacket, or aviators’ customised bomber jackets, this is the dose of vitamins you need for mid-season.
