Taken from the archive pieces from the 1930’s the original rainproof coat for motorcycle riders has been reinterpreted in two lengths for women, both keeping with the classic Strom coat style. While the elemental details remain the same Belstaff has revised the volume and swapped the buttons for silver snaps.Quilted waistcoats come zipper fronted with a rib collar and in a variety of spring colours plus in a conceptual camo print evoking Belstaff’s military heritage.

 Another expansion of the Ryder style is the shorter more relaxed Colonel, incorporating a technical drawstring with toggles round the waist and a flap.

Incorporating modern sportswear elements is a key feature of this collection with direct references to surfing and diving fabrications a well as body contours.
 Leather has been perforated and reimagined  in a scuba style shape – as in a 60s inspired scooter jacket and in places comes bonded with neoprene.

Patterns and prints have a nautical inspiration. Lines in the sand left at low tide have been used to provide a subtle wavy pattern through quilts, waxes and leather.

Patchwork of soft pastel blues from royal and navy to turquoise and ultramarine
Delineated broken shared print with references watery reflection elements
