I showed you a photo last month of actor and big motorcycle enthusiast Ewan McGregor riding an Ossa motorcycle. Today I found these interesting artsy images of him. Apparently he is the face of luxury garment manufacturer Belstaff in their Fall/Winter 2012-2013 line. The photos feature McGregor in Belstaff riding gear surrounded by beautiful fashion models Karmen Pedaru and Maud Welzen. The machines in the background are Norton model 7 Dominator, Velocette Venom, and an Aston Martin DB5 Volante. The photographer is Craig McDean.
I must admit that Belstaff motorcycle gear looks swell —it’s very expensive but, hey, it’s high-fashion gear, very serious high fashion. Belstaff is trying to restore it’s British heritage and reposition itself as a major global luxury lifestyle brand, and they are on the right track. By the way, the motorcycle jacket McGregor wears in the photo below is Kendal Jacket (In Elephant Embossed Leather) retailing for $2,695.00.
