BARBOUR AND LAND ROVER CEMENT PARTNERSHIP WITH SPRING SUMMER '15 COLLECTION
Two quintessentially British icons – Barbour and Land Rover – have announced their second clothing collaboration for Spring Summer ‘15.
The collection draws on the key strengths of both brands to deliver clothing built on the shared foundations of capability, design, reliability and style. Inspired by Land Rover’s contemporary design and refined luxury, the range is a modern interpretation of the two brands’ traditions.
A premium lifestyle collection, lightweight jackets are complimented by gilets and a range of knits, shirts, jerseys and graphic tees. Wax, leather and quilt jackets are flatteringly 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 you would expect from a partnership with the highest standards of workmanship and finish.
Lindsey Weaver, Global Licensing & 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 and designed with the unpredictable British weather in mind, the Burnside is ideal to carry in the car in case the weather changes. 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 proudly 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 100% waterproof. Using the Land Rover Grill as inspiration the luxurious leather Harwood jacket is a signature piece that is highly covetable. 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 in store from February 2015 and will be retailed through Barbour and Land Rover distribution channels worldwide.
