Belstaff has launched its capsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2016, designed by none other than its brand ambassador, actress Liv Tyler.
The 12 piece collection hit Belstaff stores on Tuesday, and features statement outerwear pieces such as a military cape, parkas jackets as well as a peacoat and a fine-leather jacket. The collection, which was developed together with Belstaff's creative director, Delphine Ninous, takes its inspiration from the heritage brand's archives as well as Tyler own personal style.
"I wanted to express strength through the outerwear and leather pieces alongside a more feminine sensual side through the softer materials like silk, and via the more fitted silhouettes of my styles," said Tyler on the collection in a statement. The resulting collection features looks which are reminiscent of female pilot Amelia Earhart in the 1920s, who was one of the first women Belstaff ever dressed.
In honour of the capsule collection, Belstaff and Tyler have created a short film entitles Falling UP, which sees the actress retrace the footsteps of Earhart. "We wanted to tell the story of who the Belstaff woman really is: free-spirited, independent, brave... She commands real respect," added Tyler. The capsule collection is currently available online and in Belstaff stores, with prices ranging from 295 pounds for slim fit trousers to 1,595 pounds for the Lexie Lt Blouson.
