A partnership born out of mutual respect, admiration and appreciation of both parties’ tried and tested expertise, the SS15 collection from Barbour and White Mountaineering combines South Shields finest’s materials and silhouettes with the Tokyo based outdoor innovators eye for design and detailing.
Deploying a bespoke print throughout the collection, the capsule utilises a variety of tried and tested outdoor fabrics, from Barbour’s signature waxed cotton, to heavy duty canvas and slubbed jersey, creating a range that is both aesthetically and tangibly complex.
Confidently drawing on a carefully selected range of silhouettes, this is a collaboration that successfully manages to play into the hands of everyone involved, with WM designer Yosuke Aizawa’s expertly tuned view on functionality sitting perfectly with Barbour’s celebrated apparel.
Transforming a selection of outerwear, shirting and outdoor inspired designs with the use of pockets, placement of fabrics and strategic reinforcement, this is an impressive new offering from a match made in heaven.
