LONDON, Feb. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —
"Adventure is worthwhile in itself" – Amelia Earhart
This season’s collection explores the concept of a woman taking off into a natural realm with no frontiers or limitations, and all that she needs in the clothing on her back. 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, allowing her to live fast and free in an ever-changing environment.
Drawing upon the need for protection from the elements, the collection focuses on luxurious natural fibres such as fur, shearling and woven wool boucle, as well as Belstaff’s weather-proof fabrics, nylon and wax cotton. Layering is further explored with Belstaff’s modular lining system, ensuring that the Belstaff women is primed for the unexpected. A mixing of themes and materials is very apparent: masculine with feminine; oversize and mini; savage and sensual; casual and luxe. A fur-trimmed parka is juxtaposed with a long leather skirt; a cashmere and wool Roadmaster complements a long fluid skirt with deep slit.
The collection, Delphine Ninous’ first for Belstaff as Vice President of Women’s Design, was presented in a beautiful, slightly dilapidated mansion, among a setting of vintage parachute silks, evoking the heritage of the brand as supplier to pioneering pilots and the British army.
