It's how I see the sexual crisis, personally, so it's putting an image to an emotion of mine, basically.' Gianni Molaro

Whether its the imagery, mottos or nostalgia these personalized World War II bomber jackets are nothing short of inspirational. The narrative that is told about each of the jackets and their respective owners is fascinating. Each of the jackets has a tremendous amount of personality, style and carry a handcrafted look that is just undeniably genuine. Those denim jackets from the 1980s got nothing on these, see more after the jump…

London's Boudicca is targeting ladies of spray can art everywhere, with their imaginatively conceived Wode perfume, a spicy amber scent packaged in a spray paint can—that goes on blue but disappears within seconds leaving behind only the sultry bouquet.
