A collaboration between classic British outerwear company Barbour and designer Margaret Howell, this collection looks at Barbour's archives to come up with some classic heritage inspired pieces with the contemporary loose cut of Margaret Howell's designs. Using the classic Barbour wax jacket as a base and drawing on military and outdoor wear Margaret Howell and Barbour have created timeless pieces that are all Made in England to a premium quality.
Barbour and Margaret Howell are two brands that have and continue to play an important role in British menswear, and both draw on heritage design; so this collaboration makes perfect sense for both brands. Margaret Howell has taken on the waxed jacket as a base model and, drawing on military references, has created timeless contemporary British designs that take a clear influence from heritage menswear.
Barbour x Margaret Howell - Stylists Notes
The collaboration fits comfortably into Barbours collection but has subtle changes in fit and style. The jackets take a looser, oversized fit with an A-line shape so pair well with looser silhouettes. The military inspired details mean that pairing it with heritage and other military inspired garments works well.
