Maybe I've been living in a bubble (okay, highly likely I've been living in a bubble), but I had never thought to look for a leather vest for riding. The association with leather vests and motorcycles, in my mind, is not really high on the fashion stakes. They're usually badass, patched with a hoodie under and sometimes a fringe to boot (nothing against fringes but you get where I'm going with this). When I saw the way Lindsay wears hers, it changed my perception of this bit of kit. Pockets everywhere, flattering adjustable waistline, great to wear in the warmer months, even with a lighter armoured jacket over the top and works off the bike too. 

Heleana is a force of nature. The founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
