Belstaff collection presentation A/W 2015 for LFW
Exploring the concept of a woman with no limitations, Belstaff took influence from the primary pioneers to dress in the brand’s clothing, Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson. With strong consideration of the elements, the line explored the threat of nature and how to protect the modern woman from the day to day.
Cosy and comfortable, fur and woollen bouclé is twinned to create a clean and refined line of outerwear. Approachable and practical the luxury label explored layering through modular lining, with a view to prepare the wearer for the unanticipated.
Androgyny played a fervent role within the collection, with masculine angular cuts and softer fabrics to create an air of feminity. The looks concealed the models’ figures rather than complimented; the A/W 2015 collection offered a style for the active and independent woman.
The presentation took place at Old Sessions House; an abandoned mansion with paint stripped walls, paralleling the collection with its grace yet humility. With models positioned around old military parachutes, a relaxed viewing quality reflected the ethos of the brand.
This season saw a revision of the iconic Roadmaster coat; the cashmere piece is seen with a rabbit fur collar encouraging a defined frame to the wearer’s jaw line. Worn with 1930s-style pleat tailored trousers assembled from gabardine, distinctive silhouettes are created to empower.
