Belstaff AW19 Collection at London Fashion Week Men's

This collection is all about bringing it home. About honouring the roots of Belstaff and exploring the incredible journey it’s been on from the 1920s in the industrial north of England in Stoke-on-Trent – from outfitting early motorcyclists and aviators, and making uniforms – to today, dressing our twenty-first century customers in evolved British designs that are built for life and dedicated to all those who love the spirit of adventure.” Sean Lehnhardt-Moore, Creative Director The Autumn/Winter 2019 Belstaff Collection is the first by Creative Director Sean Lehnhardt-Moore, and reflects his love of the roots of the brand.

OUTWARD BOUND The Scene In the 1920s, Belstaff made protective travelling gear which resulted in a Great British Waterproofs collection developed with British mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington in the 1970s.
Colour palette of  chestnut, indigo and the new Belstaff red colour. The hooded Wing Jacket comes in a new fabric for Belstaff: a dry waxed cotton with a canvas feel.

The Shearling Car Coat in chestnut teamed with lightweight fisherman’s ribbed roll necks in oatmeal lambswool,

DOCKLAND The Scene Belstaff has a long connection with the military, particularly with the Navy, making uniforms and more extreme protective kit. The Belstaff Foul Weather Parka was created for the Royal Navy in the 1970s.
Key colours are navy,dark indigo and a presence of silver and olive. Key fabric is wool Melton.
 A long military-style double-breasted woollen trench coat (the Milford) has officer class, while a p-coat in a similar style (the Naval P-Coat) is more casual.

The Indigo Racemaster and Indigo Trialmaster jackets represent two iconic Belstaff motorcycle jacket styles reimagined in rinsed, dark denim bringing them right up-to-date.

 THE MACHINE AGE Belstaff equipped drivers, aviators and motorcyclists. All had a love of the machines that enabled them to have new adventures. Above all, it was those on two wheels who came to really adopt Belstaff. Over the years, many notable motorcyclists have worn the gear produced by the Stoke-on-Trent brand, from Che Guevara, TE Lawrence (of Arabia) and Steve McQueen in years gone by to contemporary bikers such as Ewan McGregor, Charlie Boorman and David Beckham.
Principle colours here are black, bone and blackberry.
The Patrol Jacket is in black waxed cotton with a black shearling collar

While the khaki double-faced cotton Garrison Trench Coat is hard wearing with waterproof sealed seams.

As befits a collection that is always engineered, the black leather biker boots are supremely tough, with straps and brass buckles, and belts in thick raw uncoloured leather with brass harness fastenings.

NORTHERN GRIT; Founded in Stoke-on-Trent in the 1920s, Belstaff was forged in an atmosphere of industrial development in an area dominated by potteries and coal mining. Its founder had supplied technical fabrics and waterproof materials to local factories to make capes and groundsheets for the British Army during the First World War,
Colours are black, brown and charcoal grey, in leather, wool and shearling, giving a handcrafted look. The Vincent Biker Jacket (named after the Vincent Black Shadow motorcycle) combines black and brown leather,

As does the Danescroft Jacket, a black flight jacket with brown shearling interior and antique brass trim. Black cable knit woollen jumpers take inspiration from Scottish and Irish cable designs and appear handmade.

The Trail Jacket, a hybrid black wool Melton style, with a detachable black shearling collar and black corduroy trim, references uniforms belonging to the forces of land, sea and sky.
