Like Beckham? Like Belstaff? It’s a no brainer, really. Of course we do. So the news that the second Beckham for Belstaff 2015 collection has just released (5th June) in stores and online will bring joy to those men with the wallet large enough to invest in these incredible pieces. A trans-seasonal collection, it will sit alongside the Belstaff Pre-Fall’15 then AW15 collections through to sell-out.
Following Mr Beckham’s first collaboration, this second capsule range continues to explore David’s passion for vintage classics, with a twist to today’s contemporary silhouettes and luxury finishes.
The pervasive sexy moto pieces are joined this year by an aviation-inspired theme. The Ryde is a take on the classic 1940s aviator jacket, with tailored collar, rear pleats and tumbled leather for an authentic finish. And, the Moore is a fresh version of the definitive flying jacket in a cotton/nylon twill, modernised with a faux fur collar and a more contemporary silhouette.
Mr B has his favourite and, since March this year, has been wearing the Stockfield – a 1950s classic denim trucker jacket with leather sleeves, creating such customer demand that waiting lists were created and sales racked up before its delivery date.
Last year’s Belstaff 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 and, like the Stockfield, has huge pre-delivery orders. If blousons are your ‘thang’, the Marshfield, with its iconic rear pockets, has been given a new hand-finish treatment to reinforce it’s vintage feel.
Beckham has also added into the collection, denim jeans with knee detailing, simple tees, Chambray denim shirts, bold yellow riding gloves, and every easy rider’s must-have – the bandana. It’s a whole lot sexy.
