Belstaff is a brand that loves to celebrate its rich history – and why not, considering the 92-year-old British label was the first to create a waterproof breathable waxed cotton, has dressed the likes of Che Guevara and Steve McQueen, the British army in the Second World War, and more recently, Ewan McGregor and David Beckham.
The brand’s latest Film, ‘Falling Up’, celebrates one of its iconic wearers: Amelia Earhart. The first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, Earhart was an American aviation pioneer, and one of the first women to be dressed by Belstaff. Her disappearance in 1937 is still a mystery, and only adds to her iconic status and fascination that continues to this day. Watch the film above, which is stars and is executively produced by Liv Tyler, and is inspired by the life of Earhart.
