Philip Ayler Was Born On A Dream
I started making these jackets because I had this vivid dream about traveling the world wearing this burgundy bomber jacket. I didn’t know where it came from but it stayed with me after I woke up. I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. [That morning] I got a phone call from a close friend of mine who’s a stylst and 15 minutes later she pulls up at my house, hops out of the car and is carrying a gift for me, a burgundy bomber jacket. I literally got on my knees outside of my house and said, ‘This is the strangest thing that’s ever happened to me, because I had a dream about this jacket last night.’ I really fell in love with that jacket. It fit me perfectly. I was getting so many compliments that it made me feel like I could wear it anywhere: to a rock show, to a fancy dinner at Chateau Marmont.
