Barbour reveals Alexa Chung collaboration

New collection follows on from tie-up with lifestyle brand Emma Bridgewater earlier this year.

Barbour is continuing with its big name collaborations, building on its tie-up earlier this year with Emma Bridgewater by revealing a new collection with Alexa Chung.

Due to launch in June, the collection with the model, TV presenter and fashion designer will see outerwear from the Barbour archives reimagined, according to Fashion United.

Items will include a long quilted olive coat with contrasting coloured corduroy collars and pockets with large buttons, a patchwork wax jacket and a blue raincoat, in addition to tote bags and a hat.

“Some of my happiest memories have unfolded in a Barbour,” Alexa commented. “The smell of the wax alone makes me feel like I’m home. For me Barbour has been part of my childhood, my coming of age and I am extraordinarily proud that it is now part of my future.”

British lifestyle brand Emma Bridgewater, meanwhile, will launch its autumn/winter 2019 collection later this year, marking its first capsule women’s collection.

The range will see bestselling patterns translated into ‘true Barbour style’. This will include a reworking of the distinctive bold lettering print and one featuring pheasants.

London Fashion Week Men’s also saw Barbour reveal its Director’s Jacket for men and women with film director and producer, Sir Ridley Scott.
