Official Belstaff Stockists
Founded in 1924, in the Staffordshire city of Stoke-on-Trent, Belstaff has taken an innovative discovery of the first water resistant wax cotton and grown it to become an icon of British heritage wear. In years gone by adventurers T.E. Laurence, Amelia Earhart and Che Guevara sang the praises of the label, with modern day brand ambassadors including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jemma Kidd and of course, David Beckham, who has previously been quoted as saying that several vintage Belstaff pieces feature amongst his wardrobe favourites.
In a development of his love for the brand, 2014 saw fashion’s favourite footballer hang up his boots and slip into his leathers, as he created a capsule collection that projected Belstaff back onto the pages of the fashion magazines. His love of motorcycles suited the Belstaff brand perfectly, making him right at home as part of a ‘band of brothers’ depicted traversing the English countryside for the collection campaign. Unsurprisingly, his moto-inspired collection was an instant hit with the fashion pack.
Now, the luxury lifestyle brand is bigger than ever, its laidback but refined appeal attracting fearless explorers and fashion enthusiasts alike. Collections are inspired by bikers of years gone by, with venerable thrill-seeker Marlon Brando providing a hefty dose of inspiration. With a cool and covetable edge, the Belstaff look suggests that its wearer can afford to travel the world on the back of a vintage Triumph and they’re going to make sure they look damn good doing so.
Combining city and country, man and machine, Belstaff injects innovation into style. The label’s classic belted 4-pocket jacket was a style staple for the 20th century racing set and its appeal remains even today, with the style a perennial favourite amongst new season collections. Belstaff is a brand for the adventurer, for the man and woman who will slip on their boots and head out into the countryside on the bike, but who still want to look good when they stop for lunch at the country pub.
Robinsons are proud to be one of just a handful of official Belstaff stockists in Yorkshire, offering both ladies and menswear from our boutique store in the town of Bawtry.
