Barbour by Alexa Chung
Leading heritage and lifestyle brand, Barbour is collaborating for the first time with fashion brand, Alexa Chung to create a collaboration which sees outerwear from the archives re-imagined through the Alexa Chung lens. This collection explores tradition, craftsmanship, modernity and character to create pieces that are both timeless and energised.
“Some of my happiest memories have unfolded in a Barbour. The smell of the wax alone makes me feel like I’m home. For me Barbour has been part of my childhood, my coming of age and I am extraordinarily proud that it is now part of my future.” Alexa Chung
The collection encapsulates a real passion for the great outdoors in a distinctively stylised way and consists of outerwear pieces which were inspired by the Barbour archive, dating back to 1910.
