The two iconic British heritage brands collaborate on the release of a new footwear collection for the A/W11 season
This September two sartorial institutions will marry as UK footwear label Grenson launches their new collaborative collection with Barbour. Both the British labels are steeped in a rich heritage of traditional design which is evident in the new collaboration, featuring four exclusive styles of country boots and brogues all handcrafted in the Grenson factory. The limited edition A/W11 collection enables Barbour to translate its exuistite farmboy/workwear look onto the qualitative Grenson boots, giving them the both them durability and character.
Steve Buck, Managing Director of Barbour said “Developing our footwear range is a key part of Barbour’s lifestyle strategy. It was important for us to work with a partner who has a shared belief in quality, innovation and attention to detail. Grenson is renowned for being one of the finest UK producers of luxury footwear and their history, heritage and company philosophy is very similar to Barbour. The footwear we have developed together is of the highest quality, incorporating elements of our signature style into beautifully crafted boots and brogues.”
The collaboration will hit selected Barbour, Grenson and premium independent stores across the UK in September 2011
