If it seems like everyone and their brother is wearing a bomber jacket this spring, that’s because they are. From David Beckham to Pharrell and Kanye, the bomber is a no-brainer, regardless of your aesthetic.

The only problem here is that the simple style is so easy to pull off, it can come off as stale. And when it comes to black or classic army green, most sartorial stars would agree that we have hit peak bomber jacket.

However, don’t let those basic hues get you down. Designers of all calibers are offering a fresh spin on the style. Virgil Abloh has a striped Off-White iteration and Loewe has crafted a lush suede number, offering solid evidence that the bomber doesn’t have to be boring.

As it turns out, this silhouette is the perfect framework to embrace something a little weird. Palm trees? Saint Laurent’s got you covered. Denim? That would be Kenzo’s thing. Are you on the lookout for a zip-up jacket with a digital print of a Grecian bust? Neil Barrett’s got your back.
