Liv Tyler didn't worry about what was fashionable when creating her collection for Belstaff.

The 'Leftovers' actress - who has 11-year-old son Milo from her marriage to Royston Langdon, and kids Sailor, 16 months, and Lula, seven weeks, with fiance Dave Gardner - was very excited to team up with the brand's creative director for her second capsule collection and only worried about things that she would personally want to wear, rather than what was on trend.

She said: "It really was the most exciting thing. I asked if I could do the capsule collection, but I didn't know where to begin as I was just busy being a mom and acting and doing all the other millions of things, but it came along at the perfect time.

"I tried not to overthink it or feel pressured to do something, or think about what's in fashion, what's not in fashion. I was excited to create pieces that I love that I want to wear in my wardrobe."

And the 39-year-old star relished the chance to delve into Belstaff's archive for inspiration.

She told Vogue.co.uk: "I'm always drawn to classic things that last and stand the test of time. Things that aren't always the trendiest or things that are in fashion at the time.

"With a brand like Belstaff I was able to go into the archive. I get ideas in my head from a lot of films and old photographs and I want to recreate those things so this was great. There's a polka-dot high-waisted top and bottom look that was something I always wanted to make. I showed it to Delphine as an inspiration - not thinking I could use it as it wasn't very Belstaff, but she was on board!"

Among the pieces in the collection are a pair of studded flats, and Liv admitted she much prefers them to high heels because she wants to feel like she can "run away" if she needs to.

She explained: "I'm very much a flat girl. I love to wear heels, they're beautiful, but I love feeling like I can run away from a situation at any given time. For sure, whoever invented high heels was a man, because they don't know what it's like to walk around on a point. I like to feel grounded."
