The new Rocky Rafaela range of leather biker jacket and vests will take my motorbike riding to a whole new level.
From the moment I saw the new Rocky Rafaela range I was hooked. It matters not to me that Ruby Rose and Gigi Hadid are converts. No! I travel my own road, and now I’ll be doing it in an edgy Rocky Rafaela leather jacket.
Easy Rider never had it so stylish.
My genuine Harley Davidson leather jacket must have been designed by a man. Oh sure, it curves in (slightly) at the waist and was ‘designed’ for a woman. But was it designed BY A WOMAN? I suspect not.
Rocky Rafaela Knows a Woman’s Body
Rochelle Gregory is the Creative Director of Rocky Rafaela. The 100% genuine leathers are ethically sourced before the handmade jackets and vests are created. Each piece explores the dualities of strength and vulnerability, of dominance and submission. Rochelle has the elegant eye of a female yet the Rocky Rafaela designs are structured, slick, and with sharp lines.
And being handmade, each one is unique.
“I like to describe my mind as a maze because every piece I create is a reflection on the hyperactivity of my feelings and thoughts. I never stop creating.” Rochelle Gregory
Rocky Rafaela Experiments
It’s been many years since I saw leather designs in cobalt blue, fuschia pink, and sunshine yellow that I actually liked. Back in ‘the day’ I had a cobalt blue leather skirt with matching sky-high cobalt blue Italian stilettos. I thought I was it and a bit. Working in the media meant there were few dress rules. So from the same designer, I had a couple of near backless knits with leather thongs tied into the front in an abandoned way.

NOW, Rocky Rafaela is experimenting with vibrant pops of colour, laser cut leather embellishments and intricately carved cowhide patterns. Each is constructed by hand using quality Australian and international materials, and lined with premium satin fabric for luxurious comfort.
