…your weirdness has a reason
Gina is a fashion designer in real life. We knew this from the beginning, because we talked about her regular fashion label and profession – but we didn’t expect her to do motorcycle fashion as well! But now it’s here, the online shop for Gina’s label CHAKKABOOM!
So when she told us about her new motorcycle fashion label, we talked to Gina about exactly what her fashion label is all about – and where you can buy the high quality motorcycle fashion she designs and makes. That’s what she told us about her fashion label CHAKKABOOM:
“As a fashion designer, I was packed with ambition from the moment I got a motorcycle myself but couldn’t find the perfect jacket. That meant for me of course: to accept the challenge to design a jacket that is chic and female, practical and functional, offers the necessary protection and above all is something different.
So the jacket should appeal to cruisers and racers who don’t always want to reach for the black leather jacket. The focus is therefore only on women, as there is so little on offer for women bikers and more and more women are beginning to bike.
Accordingly, the first two prototypes are not black, but in a beautiful vintage grey with blue and a mottled green with grey Schladminger Loden. The loden-leather combination is an unusual combination and should reflect my Austrian roots. I have always enjoyed working with Loden. Loden has very good properties which have now been used for the jacket. It cools on hot days and warms up in the wind. The additional Teflon coating lets rainwater drip off. Loden cleans itself, like wool in general. The jacket can also be worn without having to sit on the bike. For the jackets I work together with a company, which is specialized in racing clothing. So highest quality and protection can be guaranteed.”
The name Chakkaboom is a pun that goes hand in hand with “female empowerment” in its onomatopoeia and power, with which Gina can identify very well: “Women who do their own thing, in the sense of girl motorcycle gangs like The Petrolettes, The Curves, The Litas and others…”.
Now you can buy the jackets in the freshly launched online shop! They are produced on demand, not mass-produced – quality first! As a customer you will gladly accept the waiting time if you can wear a great motorcycle jacket made by Gina! Find out more on www.chakkaboom.com
