Barbour International Autumn/Winter 2017 - Ladies
Thursday 24th August, 2017 | Posted by Marchbrae
A brand spun-off from the Barbour name, Barbour International is an ode to the company's history with motorcycle clothing. The styles and practical features of today's garments are influenced by this very pedigree and can be seen throughout the collection. We are proud to present our first full season supplying both ladies and men's Barbour International.
The Autumn/Winter season brings us a collection of hardwearing wax jackets, chunky knitwear and cosy quilted outerwear. Below you will find a taste of what's on offer from the brand.

Some quality knitwear is essential for the colder months of the year. When the weather is a little milder, the Mondello can be worn as an outer layer but can just as easily be layered under a jacket when the temperature drops. The cable knit design keeps in the heat whilst the asymmetric design adds a layer of intrigue to any outfit. We love the rich colour and, of course, the high roll collar which highlights the design.
We recommend layering under a black jacket that is lighter on detailing as the Mondello has quite a lot going on in terms of design. A shorter wax jacket would be the ideal garment to pair with this cosy knitted jumper so the asymmetric hem shows. Denim is also very well suited to work with the Mondello Roll Collar Jumper. Darker denim (such as in the image above) works best but a lot depends on the look you are going for.
The most obvious feature of this jacket is the oversized funnel collar which really sets it apart from the crowd. Thanks to stud fasteners, this collar can be worn up or down depending on preference with the standing position providing a great layer of protection against the elements. The horizontal quilted design is paired with a slim fit giving the Rockingham some shape whilst also being incredibly warm. Finished with an asymmetric zip, the Rockingham is a thoroughly modern jacket that we love and think you might too. Available in both black (pictured) and a rich barolo.
The Rockingham Quilted Jacket is very versatile and can be worn with most casual outfits. On colder days, a piece of fine knitwear can be layered underneath for extra warmth. Thanks to the large funnel collar, a scarf or similar accessory isn't necessary and would likely get in the way.
A plush faux fur collar lining sits against the neck when the jacket is fully zipped up. This soft and comfortable feature adds a touch of warmth to an already well constructed jacket. The lightly wadded lining and waterproof middle layer protect you from the wet and wind. The motorcycling inlfuence can be seen in the silhouette of the Outlaw jacket; the fabric belt pulls the jacket in at the waist creating a feminine fit.
The Outlaw Jacket works great with black denim like in the picture above. A sweatshirt or jumper can fit underneath when required but this jacket works equally as well with just a top.
Based on the original International biker jacket, this ladies wax jacket has all of the features you would expect from a Barbour International piece. The focal point is a large brass buckle on the fabric belt used to adjust the shape and fit to the wearer. Barbour's Modern Tartan is used on the lining providing a nice contrast to the solid black design. Shoulder epaulettes, a collar strap and the front pockets provide intrguing design features giving this jacket a great deal of character.
Again, dark denim works best, especially black, but the International Wax can be worn with just about anything.
