Belstaff Leafield: Opposites Attract

Belstaff Leafield

Belstaff is a study in contrasts. Their classic-shaped bags come with bike tread embossing the leather, while their shoes are composed of a variety of textures, colors, and materials. One of my favorite examples is the Leafield, a sandal that mixes hunter green suede, fresh canvas, and snake embossed leather to create a shoe that somehow brings out the best in each. But I’m not just talking about contrast on the shoe – challenge yourself to create an entire outfit of opposites. I would juxtapose a soft white Acne dress (on The Corner for $395) with a tough leather jacket (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,650) – Belstaff, naturally. The feminine meets masculine style meshes perfectly with the idea of the shoe. Then to kick things up a notch, top off the whole look with a geometric Fiona Paxton brass necklace (on Luisa via Roma for $429). It’s all about playing with unexpected pairings and seeing what you come up with! Available at Barneys New York for $1,350.
