New clothing collection unveiled

Lifestyle clothing and accessories brand Barbour and luxury SUV manufacturer Land Rover have announced their second clothing collaboration for spring-summer ’15. 

The collection draws on the key strengths of both British icons to deliver clothing built on the shared foundations of capability, design, reliability and style.  

Inspired by car manufacturer’s contemporary design and refined luxury, the range is a “modern interpretation of the two brands’ traditions”.

A premium lifestyle collection, lightweight jackets are complemented by gilets and a range of knits, shirts, jerseys and graphic tees. Wax, leather and quilt jackets are cut with smart leather trims and the grill pattern is used to clever effect in summer knitwear and tees in soft, elegant styles.

The clothing details have been inspired by the precision detailing from Land Rover vehicles such as the grille and chamfer lines. This detailing gives the garments the distinctive quality that one would expect from a partnership with the highest standards of workmanship and finish, the companies say.

Lindsey Weaver, Global Licensing and Branded Goods Director for Land Rover, says: “This is an ideal partnership for Land Rover with both brands personifying all that is great about British design. With a penchant for style and comfort, both Barbour and Land Rover are revered for their all-terrain and all-weather resilience allowing customers to go about their business whatever the weather.”

For men, the waterproof breathable Burnside jacket is a stand-out piece, light and easy to wear. The distinctive Barbour Chesterdon shirt has been produced in the exclusive Barbour for Land Rover tartan and selection of tees are bold. The Otterstone Tee takes a heritage image from the Land Rover archives.

For women, the versatile and stylish Redburn is a longer length, belted trench coat which is waterproof while the leather Harwood jacket is a signature piece that draws inspiration from the Land Rover grill.  

Knitwear in soft summer colours also carries detailing inspired by the grill feature and the silk Harwood shirt and soft jersey Millburn Tee are beautifully cut to complement the outerwear. 

The collection is available from February 2015 and will be retailed through Barbour and Land Rover distribution outlets worldwide.
