Our Harvard stars alongside Liv Tyler in Belstaff film

Liv Tyler may be a Hollywood superstar, but we think our AT16 Harvard more than held her own in a recent promotional film for luxury brand Belstaff. Watch the film here.

Scenes with our Harvard were filmed early one morning in late December at Shuttleworth, so we’ve been holding on to these exclusive behind the scenes shots until now.

The film, Falling Up, was produced to celebrate Liv’s collaboration with the brand. In the film, she retraces the footsteps of female aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart – incidentally also one of the first ladies that Belstaff ever dressed in the 1920s.

For more details and behind the scenes footage of the making of the film, visit Belstaff’s website.
