The First Drop Of 2021: The Libertatem Collection
The first drop of 2021 - The Libertatem collection is BODA SKINS’ take on an inspiring and treacherous journey taken on by Mel Stultz and his crew of bikers: the Oilers Car Club’s Race of Gentleman, or better known as, the Crazy 8 crew.
After we followed the Crazy 8’s through their journey across the United States, we brought our inspirations back to our home of Manchester, England. Constructing our products in world-class artisan mills, we have transformed classic silhouettes that stand next to never-seen-before garments.
Crafted to last a lifetime, our classic Kay Michaels leathers have been restyled. Constructed with 100% chrome-free leather, they’ve also adopted a hand-painted design and evolved hardware. New deconstructable puffer coats have arrived, too, giving functionality to transform into a fully-functioning gilet silhouette.
Cashmere and mohair knitwear are welcomed, made from fully-sustainable fabrications that steer away from carbon-based products.
The Libertatem collection is BODA SKINS’ graduation into a new age of luxury fashion.
The latest BODA SKINS collection shows our evolution and thirst for continued perfection in everything we do.
OUR KAY MICHAELS HAS BEEN REBORN
This season’s Kay Michaels has been elevated, in both its construction and sustainability. Produced by a certified Leather Working Group Tannery, and one of the world’s greenest leather manufacturers, it’s made from 100% chrome-free leather and 100% organic cotton. AZO-free lining and padded details are also introduced with new lightweight and durability qualities.
BODA SKINS founder, and CEO, Nathan Alexander explained his connection to the jacket, mentioning that this reimagined Kay Michaels is his view of the present moment. With life being suspended and temporarily frozen in time, he wanted to capture this moment to ensure that, when spring comes, we never forget the pain and growth that only a cold winter can bring.

Merino wool is nature’s wonder-fibre, and it’s ability to be one of the world’s first-class fabrications is showcased once again.
