Drawing upon their years of experience, Barbour have put together a collection of quilted and waxed jackets, warm scarves, hats and luggage for this exciting release. The collection as you would expect enforces a feeling of luxurious countrywear which is fitting for both brands. This preview of the collection is sure to build up some hype around the brand with the full collection expected to be released any time soon. Stay tuned for further news.
We are not sure how we have missed this one but it seems that Barbour have released a version of the classic Bedale jacket with the masters of minimal design; Sophnet. An eye-catching camouflage lining has been added to this traditional piece. Finished with a beeswax coating to make it water resistant, the jacket has also been given black buttons and a bold golden zipper. The Bedale was released earlier this month for $599 USD from the official Sophnet website.
Barbour have created an interesting video outlining the production process for the Barbour x Grenson shoes collection. Their official Youtube channel is at Barbour Official and they have a few interesting videos to have a look at.
Barbour x Grenson
Barbour have teamed up with leading UK shoe outfit Grenson for their upcoming intruiging footwear collection this season. The fusion of two of Englands finest producers of outerwear and footwear promises to be one of the most exciting in a long time. Both manufacturers have been creating and shipping products around the globe since the 1800’s. Their innovative ideas behind their products have assisted their longevity in the clothing market for this amount of time.
About The Shoes
The shoes are hand crafted in Northampton in a painstaking, time consuming process. The result is a high quality handmade shoe/boot made from premium leather and finished with exquisite detailing throughout. Barbour and Grenson aren’t producing this collection to make money. They are more expensive than a normal pair of Grensons but the manufacturing time and materials used are just covered by the cost. They are doing it simply to generate a bit of coverage around the globe for the two brands.
We will in future feature certain styles of these shoes in more depth showing close ups when we get our hands on them. The boxes and shoe bags that they come packaged up in are particularly appealing with a very vintage look and feel to it. Keep your eyes peel Barbour fans for further news
