LFW SS17 Day 3: Belstaff x Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler’s second capsule collection for Belstaff captures the heady vibe of English Countryside at the end of the 1960s/start of the 70s, and the rock ‘n’ roll characters that were drawn to it at the time.

Shapes and silhouettes reference the free-spirited women, combined with Belstaff’s military archive pieces, resulting in a capsule collection that is at once strong, yet feminine and playful.  The palette reflects the summer countryside – taking more than a cue from Liv’s break-out film Stealing Beauty directed by Bernardo Bertolucci – rich with khaki, sand and washed-out denim hues, while a floral motif has been presented on a black background for an edgier aesthetic.

A soft tactility is at the heart of the collection, from a cropped fitted leather biker jacket with epaulettes inspired by an early 70s racing blouson from Belstaff’s archive to a beautiful sage-green suede suit made up of an A-line popper-fronted skirt and sartorial jacket.  The military influence is also visible in a four-pocket trench coat in olive and sand, and a cotton olive cape, both of which are water-repellent.  Military buttons are also a feature of a striped knit and a cropped regalia jacket.  These structured pieces juxtaposed with more relaxed shapes such as a denim dress with four pockets referencing Belstaff’s heritage outerwear and matching wide-leg cropped jeans, and a fresh yet bold polka-dot patterned silk top and wide trousers – a look whose inspiration Liv took from Katherine Hepburn.

This collection is very easy and comfortable to wear in urban environment, a bold move from Belstaff’s original brand heritage.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that
    you ought to write more about this topic, it might not be
    a taboo matter but typically people do not discuss these topics.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

    Currently it looks like Movable Type is the best blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you
    are using on your blog?
