Cooperation between Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons and the iconic ytterplaggfföretaget Barbour is perhaps no direct news. Already last year launched the first collection together. A collection where Patrick Grant had to loosen up a little more than usual and design a small collection available for Barbour Beacon Heritage line.
Spring line has a bit more color than the first collaborative collection. Last fall, it was dark and rustic colors dominated. Spring collection has more bright blue and yellow, and the focus is on simple, clean lines and a good cutting and fitting. The materials are robust and functional. Inspiration has been taken from the small fishing villages located along the coast of Northumbria in northeast England. A place where even Barbour, whose factory is located in South Shields, comes from. To strengthen the sense of the maritime inspiration behind the collection so chose Barbour to add the press screening in a pub overlooking the Thames.
When it comes to the collection, we are a little extra fond of outer garments Stanhope and Seabord that combines function and design in a good way. The coarser knitted maritime sweaters will do just as well on the Swedish west coast of the British east coast.
