Belstaff is lightening up for spring.

“For this particular collection, I wanted to explore a more feminine, lighter expression of the brand,” Martin Cooper, Belstaff’s chief creative officer, told WWD on Sunday. Founded in 1924, Belstaff’s heritage is deeply steeped in outerwear with much of the Brit brand’s history focused on sporting pieces, primarily weather-protective jackets. Since joining Belstaff last June, Cooper has refocused the line, expanding its ready-to-wear offerings. “It’s really about adding other pieces to our woman’s wardrobe: soft georgette dresses and blouses, knitwear,” he said. “It’s a softer expression of the brand this season.”
