Barbour Pre-Spring/Summer 2018
Wednesday 22nd November, 2017 | Posted by Marchbrae
We may still be in Autumn, but here we have an early preview of what Spring/Summer will bring. This serves as an early introduction to Barbour's 2018 offering and features a selection of products from their Coastal, Original North Sea Outfitters, Tartan and Essentials collections.
The focus is on weatherproof outerwear that will prove useful year-round. Waxed and quilted jackets feature heavily as you might expect from a brand with Barbour's expertise with these types of garments. Each collection provides a palette of colours to choose from with the highlights being the warm, bright canary yellow and rich navy of the Ladies' Costal collection.
Below, we select some of our favourites which are all available now online and in store. To see the full collection click here.
Based on Barbour's popular Trevose jacket
Also available in Canary Yellow.
A casual jacket that can be worn as everyday protection from the wind and rain, the Hanover draws its inspiration from Barbour's maritime heritage. A striped inner and fixed hood only add to the nautical look of this flattering jacket. Wear with light denim and trainers for a relaxed yet stylish look.
Based on Inscar quilted jacket
Also available in Navy.
Part of the Coastal collection, the Westmarch is a warm and casual gilet suited to layering over cosy knitwear on chilly days. With a removable hood, you can adapt this gilet to the rest of your outfit. A thick, cable-knitted jumper goes well with the Westmarch as does most denim. We recommend wearing with brown boots or white trainers to complete the look.
Made from boiled wool
Summer Tartan lining
The boiled wool outer has an almost felt like feel that is soft to the touch. Complete with Barbour's Summer Tartan, the Shield Knit is elegant and effortlessly stylish making it a must have item. Pair with a blouse or thin knitwear to create a sophistacated look that will also prove to be comfortable to wear.
Barbour Beacon sailcloth lining
Also availble in Navy.
Another from the Coastal range, the Inscar is a short-length baffle-quilted jacket that is suited to year-round wear. The navy and ice white colour options are incredibly versatile giving you scope to wear it how you want to. Perfect for casual everyday wear, the Inscar is warm and features a handy detachable hood.
100% waxed cotton outer
The first of the Origial North Sea Outfitters collection to be featured, the Connel is a classic waxed cotton jacket that Barbour have come to be known for. The deep olive colouring is well suited to being worn with darker denim or chinos and a pair of rugged boots. With a quilted lining and waxed cotton outer, you can be sure that the Connel will provide a great level of protection from the elements
Button down shirt
Barbour's signature sett
A classic button down style shirt, perfect for smart/casual wear. Wear with chinos or dark denim and brown shoes or boots for the quintessential look. The tailored fit gives a contemporary style whilst the soft twill weave cotton provides a comfortable feel.
A versatile tailored fit jacket, the Upton features a warm baffle quilting and minimalist design. It can be worn as a purely casual jacket with jeans and trainers or can pass of as a warm outer layer to more of a smart/casual outfit when needed.
Brushed cotton lining
Another from the ONSO range, the Ebel jacket features the recognisable diamond quilted outer that Barbour are known for. The tailored fit and olive colouring make this jacket ideal for pairing with slim lighter chinos and dark denim alike. Knitwear and a shirt work well underneath, but a more casual look featuring a sweatshirt works equally well.
