New Nylon

I never thought that windbreakers would have a fashion moment, but their ubiquitous presence in Spring '08 collections has made a believer out of me. I've seen several transparent styles in fluo colors, as well as fitted, bomber style versions. The lightweight material is practical for spring, and the look gets updated with a wrinkle effect.

The Brie Nylon Jacket by Mackage sold out at Blaec almost immediately, but they've since restocked. $285.

I like this shiny, metallicized version from American Apparel. Unisex Lycra Taffeta Emergency Jacket from American Apparel, so named for its ability to zip up into a portable, travel-friendly pouch. At $52, it's also the most affordable.

Open in case of emergency.

I'm coveting this parachute style jacket/tunic by mk2k. The sleeves can be unbuttoned and the belt is detachable, affording a variety of styling options. $264 @ Active Endeavors.
