The Belstaff Jacket – Revisited and Revised

As everyone is gearing up for the movie release of Breaking Dawn Part 2, us Twilight fashion fanatics are grasping on to the very few movie stills that are slowly opening new gateways to highly anticipated clothing possibilities. It is true, that with the Breaking Dawn movies, costume designer Michael Wilkinson has NOT disappointed us. From the dainty and elegant wedding dress designed by Carolina Herrera, to the very “classic American summer’ style honey moon clothing, the cast was certainly dressed to impress.


One high end brand that seems to reoccur   in both Breaking Dawn movies is Belstaff.

In Breaking Dawn Part 1 we see Bella Swan clad in a Belstaff New Greenford Blouson Lady Jacket, paired with the (James Perse) Contrast Panel Shirt, 7 for all Man Kind jeggings, and Van Wellesley Hiker Skate shoes. Jacob Black was also seen wearing Belstaff.

As twilight conventions began evolving with Breaking Dawn material, photos began to flood the internet, one in particular that got the twifashion world buzzing. .


Yet Another Belstaff jacket is spotted for Bella Swan.

This was discovered to be the Double Breasted Zip Leather Blazer jacket. It had never appeared in Breaking Dawn Part 1 and most had already anticipated it for vampire action in Breaking Dawn Part 2. In the official Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie poster of Bella Cullen, She is finally spotted wearing the jacket! (The image in the poster is actually flipped. the fold of the breast piece is on the wrong side). The jacket itself had been sold in the colors Silver, and Black. The Silver color is actually still available to purchase HERE.

HOLD UP! You certainly do not want to jump the gun on this one. In the poster, the jacket looks undeniably black, but in the photos from conventions, it leans more toward the silver color. So the question is, which is it!? Black, or Silver? The answer: none of the above. Of course it would be too good to be true to purchase the screen accurate jacket. This Belstaff masterpiece was made specifically for the film. The color of the jacket is actually a pewter color with a distressed look, paired with copper hardware.

 

So, in theory, you can splurge over $1000.00 to get the silver jacket… or you can wait for Cosplaysky.com to produce a most likely VERY screen accurate replica of the Double Breasted Blazer for a cost much more wallet friendly. There have been rumors cosplaysky will have this jacket, but it had not been confirmed. I think ill take my chances and cross my fingers for cosplaysky!

    Glad to see a new post. I spent several days doing very little but reading through your entire blog recently. Thank you for all the effort you put in!

    However, I couldn’t help but notice that you never covered Bella’s wedding comb? There are both “legitimate” versions and a NECA licensed replica that even comes in the same style of box.

      Thanks! I’m aware of the combs, but thanks for mentioning it! I probably should do a post about the actual screen worn one!

    Do you know where the boots and pants are from? I saw them in the EW cover and just fell in love with them!
