After 9/11, or during the spread of AIDS, the world…
Originally established by John Barbour in 1894 in the North East of England to provide protective outerwear for fishermen and sailors to face the bitter British weather, today Barbour offers a complete range of clothes, accessories and footwear for men, women and children. Shirts, knitwear, trousers and accessories are now just as much in demand as Barbour’s iconic outerwear. A symbol of the British country life, Barbour’s collections now span from the best practical country clothing to the more urban fashion. There’s a choice of different ranges for all ages and lifestyles, from technical sporting clothing to country heritage fashion styles, all inspired by Barbour’s archives and re-interpreted into modern, contemporary silhouettes.
A family-owned 5th generation brand, Barbour is a global success story now sold in over 40 countries worldwide including Germany, Italy, Spain, France, the US and Japan, and holds three Royal Warrants from HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.
This Autumn-Winter 20/21, Barbour continues its collaboration with British fashion icon and brand, ALEXACHUNG, to create an archive-inspired outerwear collection that sees classic styles reimagined through the ALEXACHUNG lens for modern city and country living. Taking inspiration from the Barbour archives dating back to 1910, the eleven-piece collection which features 2 new baseball cap styles, is a celebration of British craftmanship and tradition that evokes a love of the great outdoors.
