Hey guys, I'm back and what a time I've had in America! I'm still a little jet lagged, still a little tired and the holiday blues have well and truly set in. This has been made even worse, as over the past few days I've been looking through and editing my favourite holiday snaps.

With that being said, I can't wait to start writing up my next few killer posts, which will feature some of the outfits I wore whilst away in the States. The first of which is this one, about my Mounir Ghazi Paris leather biker jacket. You will have most likely already spied this jacket on my Instagram feed, I wore it whilst shooting in Joshua Tree. Yes, that's where I filmed my super cool black and white lookbook video (which even I was proud of after a little editing).

This is my favourite jacket from the M.G.P collection, as I think it's the coolest biker I've ever seen, not to mention being lucky enough to wear it! The jacket looked amazing against the desert backdrop, it just looked so bloody cool! You know me, I love a leather biker but this one really is special!

Every detail from the chunky thick straps on each of the sleeves, to the quality of leather, it really is the biker jacket of my dreams! I had to go all out with my outfit, as I wanted the photographs to look as cool as possible. It was as you probably would expect, VERY hot shooting in the desert, daily temperatures surpassed 40 degrees, blame this for seeing my half naked torso! The leopard print shirt I wore is from Phix, the brand I work for in Manchester (which I'll talk about over here very soon). This shirt isn't available yet, but I'll keep you posted as to when it drops online.

The photographs and film were both shot very early in the morning to avoid the heat of the day but I can tell you now, it was still pretty toasty strutting around the desert in a black leather jacket at 7AM! I took my inspiration from a series of photographs starring the man, the legend Mr. Keith Richards. The shoot took place in 1969 in Joshua Tree California, I absolutely love the images of Keith on this shoot, if you've never seen them I strongly recommend you check them out!

Joshua Tree is where I shot my photographs too as we were staying out there in the most amazing AirB&B! The area surrounding our little desert dwelling was the perfect backdrop to my film and the photographs, so I had to take advantage. I knew it would look good, but maybe not this good! I'm also so glad Mounir - the main man behind the jacket thought so too.
