Fault Magazine Reviews Belstaff LCM SS17 Presentation

 

Taking inspiration from Bruce Brown’s Motorcycle classic, Belstaff decided to bring the dirt track to London with a film-set homage to On Any Sunday, making it a weekend to remember. Heavily influenced by the “King of Cool”, Steve McQueen, the models lazed back on the vintage cars and motor cycles dressed in hand-waxed leather clad and aviator shades. The cast had a carefree attitude exuding off of their rugged exterior – you could almost smell the motor oil radiating off of them. Integral to this collection was the personalisation of the leather jackets and the references to the sun-bleached palette of the film. Recognisable personas from the track were replicated in this collection: Romero with a diamond hand-waxed leather application and Mashburn’s black and yellow colour schemes. These pieces celebrated the pioneering era of 1970s racers as Frederik Dyhr, Belstaff VP Men’s Design explains, “[It] was a defining time for Belstaff because leather manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic were really embracing this idea of personalising leatherwear and so began an era of strong colour direction”.

 

Rough-edged, lived-in looks, rich tobacco tonals and black burnished finishes set the tone for most outfits. Paying tribute to racing as a coveted sport, we saw relaxed open necklines – an ode to the racing shirts of the 1970s. As a nice surprise Belstaff showed us five looks from the Women’s SS17 pre collection, again taking carefree biker-goddess attitudes as well as hand-waxed suede and lightweight straight-leg denim. The show carried on outside thrilling the public with Twelve-time Trial World Champion Dougie Lampkin MBE performing crazy bike stunts a stones throw away from Queen Liz’s 90thbirthday luncheon. A rather noisy, but lovely birthday surprise, we think!

FAULT Reviews – Belstaff SS16

Untitled-1

On a misty London day, we were transported to the searing heat of the Sahara for Belstaff’s spring/summer 16 presentation. As we arrived at the camp (parked outside an event space next to the murky Thames) to find a tent, sandbags and jeeps and followed the Moroccan rugs inside to find a hazy yellow light pouring down on the models kicking up the sand.

The biker brand’s tough leathers were still there but this time in soft hues of camel, cream and camo blue. Canvas water bottle carriers and amo belts, camouflage neckerchiefs and military desert sunglasses prepared us for an adventure with the label whose history includes supplying the British forces. Deep breast pockets, ridged knee padding and gun metal popper closures gave utilitarian finishes but a few softer silhouettes also caught our eye including a leather cape, wide-knit cream sweaters and knee-length parkers left open.

For the spring/summer 16 collection Belstaff have referenced former wearers of the brand including Lawrence of Arabia as well as new ones such as explorer Levison Wood whose most notorious expedition travelled the length of the Nile. Belstaff have developed an explorer jacket with Levison for this season too.

As the sun moved across the sky on the backdrop behind the models, we were ready to head back to camp for a mint tea and to plan the pieces we’ll be shooting for spring/summer 16.
