Preview: Belstaff Spring/Summer 13

Inspired by the romanticism of global travel, Belstaff SS13 has gone back to its roots and primarily focused on outerwear. Mixed with crochet knitwear, the garments take on the appearance of rich melange linen in the neutral desert. This combined with classic trousers in bright indigo python help transform the collection into a selection of bold, wearable uniforms.

Amongst the collection is a paper-thin leather jacket bonded to poplin, which rolls up perfectly for trips from city to country – whilst an oversized parka adapts perfectly to different climates.

“ I wanted to express in this collection a new language for a modern man who is, at the essence, the luxury global traveller.” – Martin Cooper, Chief Creative Officer, Belstaff

Overall the ready-to-wear, outerwear and accessories feature in a natural colour palette of olives, terracotta and pale stone with bursts of dusty yellow, burnished brown and bright chambray blue.
