Motorcycle jacket with wool check, jeans, tall black boots with leather strap by Mik Cire, FW 2010/11; presented at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York (11 - 18 February 2010 at Bryant Park tents). Photo by Fernanda Calfat/Getty Images for IMG, (C) 2010 Getty Images.

The image of this style is a favored one by the fashion press in the last months. It appeared in several magazines - on- and offline. The reason is not only the great vintage motorcycle style of the California based designer Eric Kim - his label got his name read from backwards 'Mik Cire'; it's the casting of a model with long blond hair - men with straight long hair are currently filling the photo stories in 'glossy' on- and offline magazines, and the photographer's sense for the right time of capturing the man on the catwalk: Fernanda Calfat's image mediates the impression of 'dynamic with ease'.

Eric Kim has founded the label 'Monarchy', which he has left to focus on his contemporary label 'Mik Cire', launched in February 2010 in New York. Watch the Mik Cire-video with the designer in an interview introducing his new label and catwalk views from Bryant Park.

Man on a motorcycle; campaign for 'Vintage Black' by Kenneth Cole, SS2010. For the 'Vintage Black' campaign, Kenneth Cole uses the image of a motorcycler on a classical bike, who is wearing a leather jacket from the 50ies with modern jeans and bike boots to express his idea of 'vintage'. For the designer, the 'art of vintage' is to create instinctively from classical elements a modern, contemporary look.
