Barbour AW15

Army dreamers: the boys are back in town in camo and and Hokusai inspired wave prints

Initial reaction:

Army dreamers. The brand showcased highlights from its Heritage Tweed and Core Essentials range, but it was the styling of all those khaki hues, camouflage prints and luxury quilting that really bought things together. This felt like a declaration of a new type of outerwear uniform. You could even say there was an evening dress element to the smart spin on how the brand put its most iconic pieces together. 

The Tempest:

Barbour has been making waves with it’s collaboration with Japanese brand White Mountaineering, and for AW15 the brand is taking that quite literally. The Hokusai-inspired wave featured in dark olive and indigo on jackets, shirts and trousers. Meanwhile in the collaboration, patchwork knitwear, printed sweatshirts and more rugged fabrics solidified a more streetwear friendly offering from the brand.

Into the woods:

Imagine hunting gear you could wear out to a bar and you’re on the right track. Overall, the various in-house collections felt like uniforms to last you for a long, decadent weekend in the country. Which is what you’d expect from one of Britain’s oldest labels. This time though, there was an air of youth and the appeal behind some of these wearable pieces felt more varied than ever before.
