British luxury lifestyle brand BELSTAFF presented its new Autumn Winter 2015 collection, “The Pursuit of Freedom”. This season’s collection explores the concept of a woman taking off into a natural realm with no frontiers or limitations. Taking inspiration from the first pioneering women to dress in Belstaff, aviatrixes Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson, the collection is a dynamic interpretation of the inherent danger and excitement of the natural world.
The collection focuses on luxurius natural fibres such as fur, shearling and woven wool boucle, as well as weather proof fabrics, nylon and wax cotton. A mixing of themes and materials is very apparent, masculine with feminine; oversize and mini; savage and sensual; casual and luxe. The grungy laid back collection plays with soft tailored layers to create boyish looks for power girls. The chunky knits full of texture and tactility, are layered underneath the outewear, providing protections and comfort. Parkas, capes, quilts, pea coats play with volume and length, subverting traditional male shapes into female silhouettes.
Belstaff is headquartered in London and showrooms reside in New York, Milan and Munich, with a London showroom opening in May 2015. The label is currently sold through its flagship on New Bond Street, and 5 freestanding boutiques in Europe and the United States, through select wholesale distribution worldwide and on www.belstaff.com
