What do you wear when driving a supercar? Why should you buy a limited edition mustard jacket made in Italy? How do you team mustard with other colours whilst driving a convertible?
Benheart Italy is a luxury leather brand that makes its leather jacket in Tuscany. I have visited their three boutiques both in Florence and Lucca in Tuscany. The boutiques are funky, colourful and full of endless choices of leather types and styles. The staff are very knowledgeable when it comes to leather goods.
Owner and founder Ben has a passion for leather and is often outsourced to work with luxury brands like Gucci.
How To Match Your Mustard Leather Jacket?
I have never gravitated to a mustard or yellow jacket in my life. But at fifty I have to wear more colour. I opted for these tight-fitting styles because it is flattering. I also loved how high the collar was super high above the neck to give a chic and edgy vibe.
My top tip is to go one size up as the leather does stretch and it will give you more room to fit silk black panther shirts under it.
With leather jackets opt for either silk or cotton shirts that are not thick.
Feeling Mean In Mustard And Green
Leather empowers me to feel strong, and confident and to be able to take on any car challenge. It’s a man’s world after all and wearing leather when driving a Bentley or an Aston Martin gives me the attitude to go fast.
I was feeling very proud of wearing 100% Made In Italy, by Benheart Italy.
Red And Mustard
I opted for the Benheart cross-stitched red trainers as I need lots of grips to get behind a whopping 650bhp. When driving these supercars you have to be able to break and feel comfortable behind the wheel.
The Bentley Continental GTC Speed convertible is the fastest in the world. And with a price tag of over 200,000 pounds, shoes make all that difference.
Not that easy to drive a Ferrari Roma with high heel boots.
These read leather trainers are striking with many outfits. When driving theFerrari Roma.
Red for me is about passion for life and luxury lifestyle.
Bespoke Denim Jeans
With my embroidery, bespoke denim GO jeans the combination really stood out. Red goes with everything.
The trainers teamed so well with the red trainers and black panther silk trousers both very comfortable to drive in.
The Lady With The Green Dress
This satin green dress was sourced from a vintage fabric shop. It weighs about 3kg and is stunning to wear. This bespoke dress was made in Roma, by Angela Facchini.
Being creative should be personal. It doesn’t matter if it is right or wrong.
By teaming it with a Benheart Italy mustard jacket it was a match made in Heaven. I could unzip it from the bottom of the jacket to give it more movement, which is perfect for dancing around a car and when driving it.
I am personally inspired by working with artisans that make goods in Europe. There is freedom of ideas, rather than being too controlled. And what is really important is how personal it becomes to me. When the products end up in my hands.
The back of the leather jacket is tailored and equally as flattering as the front. The leather and dress gives me such a boost of creativity it means they belong to me and own the clothes not the other way around.
No matter where I placed the jacket it always looked fantastic with any hotel decor. So when not used I would use it as a prop.
