Belstaff took a military turn, with jackets and shackets inspired by air and land operations, in faded hues and lightweight fabrics.
There were aviator jackets galore, in suede or crinkly cotton in sun-faded olive, with the brand’s patch logo on the sleeve, and shirt-jacket hybrids with patch pockets in shades of sand and stone.
Camouflage played big, appearing on fitted cotton jackets and knee-length shorts. Vintage dyes including indigo and brick red gave a worn-in look to some of the brand’s classics, including the Trialmaster and other short styles with buckles at the neck.
Creative director Sean Lehnhardt-Moore said he wanted to achieve “a lived-in look that is both lightweight and wearable,” and said he was putting equal focus on form and function.
He worked with water-repellent nylon for a series of flight jackets, and churned out a host of linen or cotton khaki shirts for summer.
