New: Dainese leather jacket 2014 collection

Italian manufacturer Dainese releases four new jackets

ITALIAN manufacturer Dainese has released its leather jacket collection for 2014 which it says will suit all styles from sports, casual and vintage.

The Laguna Evo Pelle is a sport-inspired jacket made from a combination of Tutu leather and Cordura Comfort fabric. It has elasticised inserts located in the hips and elbow to improve comfort and fit. According to Dainese, it can be worn all-year round due to a removable thermal lining and ventilated areas on the chest and hips. The jacket comes with CE certified protectors and a pocket for a back protector. Available in white-black, black-red, black-white, and black, in sizes 44-62 with an RRP of £349.99. A female specific version of the jacket is available in the same colours and sizes 40-54.

Dainese’s Racing C2 Pelle is a sporty cowhide jacket with ‘co-injected’ aluminium inserts and composite protection. It has elasticised inserts on the neck, sleeves, sides and can also be fastened to trousers. It has a pocket to fit a back protector in, and has inlets on the side and chest to control air ventilation. It comes in black-red, black-white-red, blue-black-red, white-red, red-white and black fluo in sizes 44-60, with an RRP of £374.99.

Taking its name from Dainese’s historical archives, the Archivio Pelle jacket is finished in dyed leather cowhide for a vintage look. It has ‘Pro-Shape’ soft protectors and the option of fitting a back protector. The Archivio also features waist and neck adjustment, and a jacket-trouser fastening system. The jacket is available in black-Basic, black-Guy, black-Ace, black-Ago and black-Seven, in sizes 44-60, with an RRP of £477.99.

The Stripes Pelle has undergone a redesign for 2014, introducing the new Stripes Evo Pelle. The Evo retains the original jacket’s vintage look with cowhide leather, but now has a removable thermal liner and a new air vent structure on the chest. The jacket has removable composite protectors and a jacket-trouser zip fastening system. Available in black, tobacco and black-ghiaccio, in sizes 44-60, with an RRP of £419.99. A summer vented option is also available.
