this from Belstaff? i love it! very pleasantly suprised. this is what burberry SHOULD be. dark and sophisticated. this shows that bulky jackets and coats can still be impeccably tailored and flattering.

Ah, now it makes sense; when I first looked at this collection I thought immediately of Burberry, especially in the way it's styled presented.

It is gorgeous - Wow, would love to own a lot of this outerwear.

JCrew has been selling Belstaff pieces for a few years now and I noticed they were looking more stylish recently, but this is wildly more so even.

new owners, new creative director (Martin Cooper as mentioned above), new flagship stores opening in NYC and London this Fall, and there was an article in WWD a few months ago that mentioned they've hired Laird + Partners for the upcoming F/W campaign. quite exciting.

i've been waiting for this relaunch forever and so far it does not disappoint
