Brit brand Belstaff has a storied heritage as the maker of biker gear, but its current mens iteration under designer Martin Cooper has given the classic leather moto jacket a luxurious cachet. The label’s womenswear debut, designed by the house team before Delphine Ninous takes over next month, started there, tapping into the ’60s style of Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Faithfull, and the famous London biker hangout The Ace Cafe. Spring’s Belstaff girl was more likely stepping out of a cab than hopping off a bike, but the team retooled the era’s rebellious spirit into polished, feminine, retro staples, including a motorcycle jacket in cropped leather, clear plastic anorak, buttery zippered leather skirts in black and camel, sensible suiting, and a delicate paisley print. The clothes hit the mark on covetable, wearable utilitarianism.
