Belstaff launches collaboration collection with McLaren Automotive
Heritage British motorcycle brand Belstaff is launching a capsule limited edition collection with supercar specialists McLaren Automotive in its stores and online today.
The collection includes 10 men’s pieces and three women’s outerwear pieces, combining design, innovation and pioneering technology from both brands. It will also be available through select retail partners and some McLaren Automotive Dealerships.
Mike Flewitt, CEO at McLaren Automotive, comments: “The McLaren design language is just as relevant when applied to the development of products in other industries. Belstaff and McLaren Automotive share the same values and the synergy between both brands has resulted in a collection that has a look and feel similar to that which you would expect from McLaren.”
Both the men’s and women’s offer include all-season tri-layer outerwear and performance leather jackets, while the men’s collection also features suiting and shirting, and the womenswear has a lightweight stretch nylon driving jacket. Ergonomic seam lines and innovative stretch fabrics allow for full range of movement "for a lifestyle at the wheel and beyond the car". Key design details include mesh ventilation systems and laser cut and seam sealed technology. Each garment comes with a rubberised printed serial identification.
Belstaff CEO, Helen Wright, says: “We are two modern British brands who share an obsession with design, performance and innovation. Belstaff has been the outfitter to legends and adventurers since 1924 and this Belstaff x McLaren collection merges the best qualities of both brands.”
McLaren Automotive, the creator of luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars, launched back in 2010 and is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.
