MCLAREN COLLABORATES WITH BELSTAFF TO REVEAL FIRST AUTOMOTIVE CLOTHING COLLECTION
Following hot on the heels of the Ferrari and Berluti collaboration is this unique new “capsule” collection of men’s and women’s luxury clothes between McLaren Automotive and Belstaff, marking the first collaboration between the creator of luxury, high-performance sportscars and the iconic British clothing brand.
The respective creative teams combined their design philosophies and expertise to create new original luxury clothing, perfectly suited to the needs of both brands’ customers. Each piece has been purposefully designed to incorporate ergonomic seam lines and innovative stretch fabrics to allow for a full range of movement for a lifestyle at the wheel and beyond the car.
The Belstaff X McLaren Collection comprises 10 men’s outerwear items and three women’s pieces, with each element embodying the design ethos, materials innovation and performance heritage at the heart of the two brands. The collection characterizes the “capsule wardrobe” principle – based around a few essential classics that never go out of fashion – in the most elegant and functional way possible.
As with McLaren’s range of luxury performance cars, the products in the Belstaff X McLaren Collection tell the visual story of their function in a simple but technically precise way. The pieces feature classic designs and a limited colour palette of black and deep navy, in order to be flexible and functional and as easy to wear during the working week as at weekends.
Both men’s and women’s collection are centered around three outwear styles: an all-season Performance Shell Field Jacket; a lightweight stretch nylon outerwear, named the Lightweight Hero Driving Jacket; a Hybrid Leather Driving Jacket. The men’s collection also features other suiting, shirting and layering options. Each piece in the Collection features a serial number and a Belstaff X McLaren labe
The Belstaff X McLaren Collection launched November 6 in the UK, Europe and the USA, with the Collection launching in Asia early 2019. The Collection will be available from selected McLaren Automotive retailers worldwide as well as Belstaff’s global stores and official online sites, and selected retail partners.
