Since taking over the creative direction of Belstaff in 2011, Martin Cooper has been tasked with injecting modernity into a brand deeply rooted in the tradition of motosport. His solution? Up the femininity, up the luxury. For fall, his formula was winning. Cooper worked from the outside in, offering lush curly-hair shearlings, sleek leathers trimmed with calf hair and finished with antique brass closures, and, of course, the brand’s classic Trialmaster jacket, this time in black waxed cotton.
The outerwear was a nice contrast to the layers of tactile knits and pretty flounce skirts, most worn with wonderfully chic knee-high boots that could manage New York’s leftover slush and snow with aplomb.
