Martin Cooper, the brand’s chief creative officer, had an old-fashioned traveler in mind — think Ralph Fiennes in “The English Patient” or John Malkovich in “The Sheltering Sky” — for this collection of luxury outerwear. He sent out myriad versions of the brand’s belted Trialmaster motorcycle jacket: in nylon with leather details, in linen with leather trim and in russet suede. Other biker jackets came in black leather, in chunky knitted silk the color of oatmeal, or in a blend of matte waxed crocodile and suede.

Cooper’s workload is set to get even bigger as Belstaff begins rolling out its first standalone stores. In September, the brand will open a 3,000-square-foot unit on Madison Avenue in New York, and similar-sized stores in Milan and Munich shortly after that. In the spring, Belstaff will open its largest unit — 25,000 square feet — on New Bond Street in London’s Mayfair.
