Inspired by vintage travel cases, Martin Cooper portrayed the ultimate sense of utilitarian luxe for Belstaff's Spring '13 collection. It was all about breathing new life into the brand's classics as the designer remixed the classic Belstaff Trialmaster jacket in linen and stripes. The latter also found its way onto breezy shirt dresses and louche pants. Meanwhile, perforated leather jackets, tops, and skirts provided a luxurious (and breathable) option for wearing Spring's leather trend without having to sweat it out. "We’re exploring the feminine side of the brand,” said Cooper. That said, he came, he sought, and he conquered.
