BELSTAFF x VESTIAIRE COLLECTIVE PARTNERSHIP
Belstaff has been quietly curating and building its Archive in preparation for the brand’s Centenary in 2024.
Modern British heritage brand Belstaff launches a limited edition capsule collection with cult Japanese street-wear brand Sophnet for Spring Summer 17.
Liv Tyler’s second capsule for Belstaff captures the heady vibe of the English countryside at the end of the 1960s / start of the 70s and the rock’n’roll characters that were drawn to it at the time.
Working closely with VP of Women’s Design Delphine Ninous, Belstaff Brand Ambassador and Creative Contributor Liv Tyler has uniquely interpreted the Belstaff spirit and archives by creating a capsule collection based on contemporary silhouettes and luxurious natural fibres, emphasising a strong and modern femininity.
Liv Tyler’s 2nd capsule for Belstaff captures the heady vibe of the English countryside at the end of the 60s and the rock’n’roll characters drawn to it at the time. Silhouettes reference the free-spirited women who were part of that scene, ie Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull. This combined with Liv’s feminine style and her love of Belstaff’s military archive pieces result in a capsule that is strong, feminine, playful.
Belstaff’s Spring/Summer 17 Men’s collection is inspired by Bruce Brown’s seminal 1971 motorcycle film, On Any Sunday, starring Steve McQueen. Like the film, the collection celebrates the carefree attitude of the guys and girls from on and off the bike tracks. Referencing the sun-bleached palette of the film, key design references and colours are also taken from Belstaff archive pieces of the same era. Reinforcing and innovating true Belstaff outerwear and leather icons, the Trialmaster, Roadmaster, and café racer are all reinterpreted here.
