ABOUT THE FUTURE: Belstaff has renewed its ongoing relationship with Hollywood by designing the costumes for the Disney 3-D movie “Tron: Legacy.” The sequel to the legendary 1982 film by Steven Lisberger will debut in theaters on Dec. 17.

For the clothes, in order to enhance the movie’s special effects, Belstaff used Energear, an exclusive fabric produced by Swiss manufacturer Schoeller Textiles. Energear is made with natural fibers that take infrared rays produced by the body and reflect them back, helping circulation and increasing oxygen levels in the blood.

“We dress heroes,” commented Franco Malenotti, president of Belstaff, referring to the numerous appearances of the brand’s products in cult movies including the iconic “MMM the Blouson” in “Mission: Impossible III” and the three different jackets worn by Shia LaBeouf in the recent flick “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”

The company also confirmed that it will design a special “Tron: Legacy”-inspired jacket that will be included in the next fall collection.
