There comes a time when going back to the roots feels like the only way to move forward and despite the constant need to evolve and get better, the idea to simply delve into the familiarity of a brand’s heritage feels recomforting. At least this was the concept preceding Belstaff’s fall / winter 2013 collection, a juxtaposition of old and new with a strong emphasis on waxed cotton woven into a cloth, serving as foundation for slick jackets, pants and skirts. It all came down to edgy looks, but the kind that don’t necessarily exclude femininity and ease.
The line up debuted strong, with a selection of all-black ensembles that slowly evolved in an array of khaki, brown and crimson garments, only to conclude in the same dark note. But along the way the accent fell on beautiful knitwear pieces, paired to flounce skirts, styled with knee high boots, and on equally compelling fur touches that appeared light and warm as placed on elegant coats and jackets. If embracing one’s legacy is an action that emulates such beautiful reflections, taking a few steps back from time to time must become mandatory.
