The Lord of the Rings beauty welcomed her third child, daughter Lula, last month (Jul16) with partner Dave Gardner, but the 39-year-old has happily juggled sleepless nights and round the clock feeds with her latest fashion venture.

Liv has designed a capsule collection for the British heritage label, and kept in mind what a new mum could be looking for when it comes to post-baby clothing.

"One day you are a radiant giant-bellied wonder and the next day you are kind of like a deflated balloon!” she told of the transition. “You have to be kind to yourself, your body . . . and patient. I know what works for me and my body, and I try to stick to that. I feel more confident and proud of my body than I ever have. Great classic silhouettes are always best for me. I like being able to throw a look together quickly and feel and look my best.”

Liv's approach to mommy chic is definitely reflected in the collection, which mostly consists of coats, and ties together Belstaff's reputation for excellent outerwear and her own reliance on using a coat to pull together, "pretty dresses or pants and soft, feminine blouses, to add a touch of masculinity.”

"When I think of Belstaff, I think of great coats that last a really long time and get better and better with age,” she explained. "(I wanted) to create something fresh that every woman would want to add to her closet for many years to come. I am drawn to simple shapes and designs. I like things that are practical and functional but also very luxurious and elegant."
