Belstaff AW16 Menswear Collection: 'Heading North'
The Belstaff Autumn/Winter ’16 collection is based upon cold adventure riding and the pursuit of freedom, illustrating a journey that takes you through tough terrains, snowy mountains and icy glaciers in comfort and style.
“We were inspired by the pioneers of endurance riding who threaded their bikes through some of the most inhospitable conditions for the sheer challenge of the journey. By drawing upon the Belstaff heritage, we have provided an unmatched level of functionality and technical detailing, with added warmth and comfort.”
- Frederik Dyhr, VP of Menswear Design
The collection has been designed to meet the demands of protecting against the elements, mobility and adaptability, merging the heritage of Belstaff classics with innovative new materials, constructions and functionalities to ensure unprecedented warmth and comfort. Given the ever-changing conditions these adventurers faced, there is a notable emphasis on adaptability: modular hoods and linings allow the regulation of temperature whilst breathable and water-repellent tri-layer membranes ensure protection in all conditions.
“The concept of adaptability in our Autumn 16 (pre) collection couldn’t be more relevant given the unusually mild weather we’re experiencing. Our multiple membranes and linings mean that Belstaff outerwear easily adjusts to temperatures and layers can be peeled off. That said, meteorologists expect El Niño’s frostier sister La Niña to take over this time next year: the more directional Winter 16 collection you see here will ensure you are prepared.”
