Belstaff joins LFW Schedule
British outerwear and motorcycle jacket brand Belstaff will join the London Fashion Week schedule for the first time this February for Autumn/Winter 2012. The heritage brand will present its men’s and women’s A/W 12 collections on 13 February 2012 – marking the first collection to be shown by the label since its relaunch of ready-to-wear after being purchased by Swiss luxury goods firm Labelux Group in June 2011 for £105m ($161m).
Italian brand Moschino Cheap & Chic, sister brand to Moschino, is also debuting at the event for the first time on 18 February 2012. Moschino mainline will continue to show at Milan Fashion Week. The two brands add to LFW's roster of new brands, with British designer Stella McCartney also returning to London this season with a special presentation – after showing exclusively in Paris for the past decade. She will still retain her on-schedule show at Paris Fashion Week.
