Belstaff presented Autumn Winter 2018 collection during the ongoing London Fashion Week Men’s. Named Made In UK, the collection is celebrating the brand’s British roots, with nearly a hundred year history.
I started looking at youth movements since the 1950s, referencing the vitality and energy of sub-cultures such as the mods, punks, rockers and skins, who all in very different ways sought to express an inter-generational clash though music and fashion. As I discovered through the Archive many were wearing our iconic jackets and customising them. This season these themes are played out in our iconic silhouettes such as the field jacket, parka, biker and bomber. We wanted to celebrate our heritage but also shine a light on our spirit of innovation whilst remaining modern and looking to our future. – Delphine Ninous, Creative Director
Our archive is a rich story of Belstaff and iconic outerwear, protecting you to venture free, for now and for nearly one hundred years, from the legendary Trialmaster of 1948, through to the innovative Origins collection, launching in 2018. A significant year for the company too, with Belstaff back under British ownership, since the acquisition by INEOS at the end of December 2017, we are proud to have this opportunity to celebrate our British roots. – Gavin Haig, Belstaff CEO
