This is the year I breakdown and by a Belstaff jacket. Don’t get me wrong, here. I’ve wanted to every season on record, but now I’ve reached breaking point. Not another autumn winter will go buy without me braving the cold in Belstaff. Done and dusted. I just thought I’d put that out there up front to show how serious I am about this collection. Serious as a heart attack.
As each piece was marched out onto the catwalk, it only took the model five high heeled steps and I had already worked out how, where and with what accompanying articles of clothing this coat or that coat would be worn.
The range of styles for autumn winter 2013 is quite extensive, mind you. We have oversized parkas with fur linings, short motorcycle jackets in exotic skins and, my personal favourite, a leather bomber with a fur collar so extensive it seemed to have its own wave as the model bounced up and down the catwalk.
This won’t be the last you hear from me on this fantastic new season from Belstaff. I have a feeling the real devil is in the detail here. So bring on the up close and personal go-see appointment. Stay tuned…more to follow…
