In the heart of Bisbee, Arizona, a fashion revolution has quietly been unfolding, spearheaded by designer Claire Harlin. Classic Rock Couture, once a small-town fashion house, has now catapulted into the limelight with its unique blend of vintage charm and rock ‘n’ roll flair. This brand’s meteoric rise to fame is not just a story of style but also one of substance, capturing the essence of the 1970s southwest through each meticulously crafted piece.

The hallmark of Classic Rock Couture’s success lies in its distinctive jackets, particularly the Rising Sun Bomber, which was inspired by 1970s ski and western wear. It is only a coincidence that it emulates the Arizona state flag, but fans have appropriately dubbed it the “Arizona jacket.” This iconic piece has not only been featured in numerous movies and TV shows — It was worn by actress Cobie Smulders in most episodes of the ABC series “Stumptown” and also by the main characters in the movies “Prom Pact” on Disney Plus and “Totally Killer” on Amazon Prime. But it has also been spotted on some of the most influential celebrities in entertainment. Miley Cyrus was one of the first to wear the jacket, as seen in a promotional photo for Miley Week on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon. The jacket has also been a favorite of four-time Grammy nominee Elle King and worn by Flaming Lips lead man Wayne Coyne, as well as on stage by members of the Lumineers and Midland. It’s also been a staple piece in the tour closet of country star Margo Price.

Besides the Rising Sun jacket, celebrities have been spotted in a number of Harlin’s other designs. Singer Orville Peck wears Classic Rock Couture’s Sonoran Sunrise jacket, and high-profile actress Florence Pugh has posted multiple photos on her social media in the Dolly jacket. Actress-comedian Whitney Cummings even gave a heartfelt social media shoutout to the Bisbee, Arizona designer after buying the Dolly jacket on Etsy, and it was seen on a main character of the latest “Paranormal Activity” movie. Harlin’s jackets have also been the subject of major TV ad campaigns for American Express, Little Caesars, and Toyota. Fashion icon Natasha Lyonne chose the Cosmic Cowboy jacket for her hit show “Poker Face” on Peacock. The widespread love for and use of Harlin’s jacket designs is authentic and organic — the small brand has never paid for or planned product placements. 

What sets Classic Rock Couture apart is not just its aesthetic appeal but also its roots. Claire Harlin draws inspiration from her personal history—her father played in a classic rock cover band, and her mom passed down what became some of Harlin’s favorite clothing items from the 70s. The brand embodies a nostalgic free spirit rock star vibe that appeals to those to whom fashion is an extension of their identity.

A visit to Harlin’s Bisbee shop or website reveals an eclectic collection that feels both timeless and avant-garde—a testament to Harlin’s skillful blend of vintage influence with a quirky desert feel. Social media platforms buzz with excitement every time a new celebrity is seen sporting Classic Rock Couture. Fans eagerly await glimpses into upcoming collections or announcements about which show or movie will next feature these beloved designs. This digital engagement underscores how deeply intertwined Classic Rock Couture has become with contemporary culture while maintaining its distinct identity.

Each jacket isn’t just an article of clothing; it’s a narrative woven from threads of artistic nostalgia—an emblem for those who march to the beat of their own drum while echoing the rhythms of classic rock legends. Claire Harlin’s journey from Bisbee to broader horizons represents more than just business success; it symbolizes how true passion can transform dreams into reality when mixed with talent, creativity, and an unyielding commitment to authenticity—a lesson we can all draw inspiration from.
