"I Asked Myself, What Would Make The Worlds Best Leather Jacket?": The History Of Kay Michaels With BODA SKINS CEO, Nathan Alexander
Our Kay Michaels has been our most treasured item for nearly a decade now.
"The KM is coming up to its 10 year anniversary, it's been a true labour of love and is still one of our best sellers today."
"The creative process of Kay Michaels has now set the standard of how everything at BODA is produced," Nathan says.
"It hasn't always been easy, though," he continued. "When it came to creating Kay Michaels, I simply asked myself the question: What would make the world's best leather jacket?
So I continued to research ideas on what I believed was the best leather jacket, and to be honest, at the time, it was a very selfish design that was tailored-made, specifically for me." After months of sketches, designs + research, the Kay Michaels began to take shape.
Leather has always been an important material in luxury fashion, with leaders in the industry sending it down various catwalks on the world stage.
"I had folders of magazine cutouts, Pinterest boards, sketches and notes, crammed with inspiration," Nathan said.
