The much anticipated Barbour x Tokihito Yoshida jackets collaboration has finally hit the shelves. The Tokihito x Barbour fusion has had people around the world saving their pennies for when the collection was finally launched…and what a collection it is. Taking his background as a fashion designer, Tokihito has put his stamp on a stylish range of jackets from Barbour and gave them a very modern twist creating an iconic Barbour Heritage Beacon collection.
The main focus of the jackets is their functionality. The designer said that ever since he was a child and was given a book on the English countryside by his father, it sparked a fascination within him with the English outdoors. You will notice that the jackets that he has created have plenty of pockets, in different sizes. His thinking behind this is to give the jackets the same functionality of a bag but obviously not have to carry one. The waxed cotton and sylkoil Barbour x Tokihito Military Jacket pictured above is going to be a popular seller this season. Durability and comfort combined with the functionality are some of the key points of the jacket.
Over the years, the Barbour brand has grown in popular culture and the addition of this new collaboration for the Autumn/Winter is only going to enhance the popularity of the brand around the world. The upcoming Barbour x Mcqueen collaboration is yet another exciting collaboration to look out for in the future. In the next coming weeks we expect the collaboration to be released to selected stores around the country. The Barbour x Tokihito jackets are on sale now at Aphrodite starting at £280.
