The collection’s story begins with the leather jacket. For cult motorcycle fans especially, this timeless piece is at the heart of every hobby or adventure. Dainese Settantadue kicks this up a notch by imbuing each jacket with exquisite craftsmanship through its advanced processing techniques and cutting-edge composition. Such composition guarantees maximum protection and a modern-day elegance full of memories. A leather jacket that highlights the new collection: Patina72 ($1,099.95)
Patina72 is unlike any other jacket. To design the Patina72, the company took soft drum-dyed premium leather and treated it to obtain a distinctive patina that is only removed when the garment is complete. As a result, the jacket takes on unique tonal variations and an exceptionally soft, warm feel. Since each jacket has different tonal variations, no two Patina72 jackets are exactly alike. The refinement of the garment is enhanced by a lining that was created and printed exclusively for Dainese72 by the New York artist Othelo Gervacio. Other features include Pro-Armor protection and removable soft protectors certified to standard EN 1621.1 on shoulders and elbows.
Founded in 1972 by Lino Dainese, true to its mission of advocating and delivering safety in dynamic sports, the Company designs advanced protective head-to-toe gear for motorcycling, winter sports, cycling, horse riding and sailing. In 2007 Dainese acquired the iconic premium sport helmet manufacturer AGV, established in 1947. In 2015, the Group expanded with the acquisition of Swedish POC, global leader in protective gear for winter sports and cycling. The new Dainese Settantadue brand, established in 2017, reinterprets the design of historic garments that are a part of the stylistic heritage of the Group, with a contemporary twist. Dainese, AGV and POC products represent the technology frontier in the field of protection for dynamic sports and are used by the world’s top athletes including Valentino Rossi and Emirates Team New Zealand.
