Following on from the success that was David Beckham’s first collaboration with Belstaff last year, the second capsule continues to explore David’s passion for vintage classics, while rendering them relevant today with contemporary silhouettes and luxury finishes.
The pervasive moto pieces are joined this year by an aviation-inspired thread. For instance, the Ryde is a take on the classic 1940s aviator jacket, with tailored collar, rear pleats and tumbled leather for an authentic finish. Joining it is the Moore, a fresh version of the definitive flying jacket in cotton/nylon twill, modernised with faux fur collar and a more contemporary silhouette.
David has been wearing the Stockfield - a 1950s classic denim trucker jacket with leather sleeves – since March, creating such customer demand that waiting lists were created and sales made, well before its delivery date.
Last year’s bestseller, the Stannard – a classic café racer jacket with diamond quilting on the shoulders and elbows - sees the introduction of a new colour way in racing green this year, in addition to the black, and has also achieved huge retail success pre delivery.
The Marshfield blouson, with its iconic rear pockets, has been given a new hand-finish treatment to reinforce the vintage look.
David has also added to this collection further elements unique to his own moto style, including clean denim jeans with knee detailing, simple tees, Chambray denim shirts, bold yellow riding gloves, and every rider’s must-have: the bandana.
The new Beckham for Belstaff 2015 collection will be available from Friday 5th June on the Belstaff website at www.belstaff.com/men/beckham-for-belstaff, in Belstaff stores worldwide and through select global distribution.
