As a celebration of its 45th anniversary, Dainese has released a new brand called Dainese Settantadue. To create Settantadue, Dainese Art Director Renato Montagner spent weeks immersed in the company’s archives in Vicenza searching for inspiration from the brand’s stylistic collaborations of the past, from Yohji Yamamoto to Valextra. The resulting collection beautifully represents the brand’s heritage, combining style, beauty, and elegance with a history that is 100% Italian.
At the heart of Settantadue is the leather jacket. The Frecca72 and Chiodo72 are two women’s jackets, which blend technically advanced gear (think removable Pro-Armor protection on the shoulders and elbows, insert pockets for back protection, and premium leather) sans bulk for a style that looks just as good on the bike as it does around town.
Each jacket retails for $599.95
