Belstaff’s Spring 2015 Women’s Ready-To-Wear collection showcased the brand’s versatility at a private presentation on Sunday evening at their new London flagship. The latest collection, designed by Belstaff’s in-house team, represents a transition from the brand’s staples of motorcycle jackets and performance outerwear to much softer pieces which consisted of silhouettes inspired by the sixties. Consistent with Belstaff’s mission to appeal to fearless explorers and fashion enthusiasts alike, many of the pieces in its RTW collection stayed true to the brand’s heritage of performance sportswear in its detailing and by effortlessly incorporating both leather and suede in many of its pieces. For example, a khaki trench with a feminine silhouette incorporated thin strips of black rubber. For the more feminine fashion coinsurer, the collection features a few silk pieces, made out of a biker’s vintage scarf, further proving Belstaff’s mission to create clothing for the everyday, fearless woman while also staying true to the brand’s rich global history.
