It was in 1936 that the first Barbour International motorcycle jacket launched by Duncan Barbour – a third generation of the Barbour family. For SS19 a combination of heritage and modernity was the focus of the collection. Bright colours of red, blue and green, alongside black and white, showcased a casual athleisure attire – sweatpants, hoodies, graphic tees and shorts, while the biker style jackets took centre stage. It was a relaxed collection, fitting for a comfortable lifestyle that accessories with duffle and bardu bags and for the first time footwear were showcased – sneakers, flyknits in two colour weaves, suede and nylon old school shoes.
Paul Wilkinson, Global Marketing and Commercial Director, Barbour International said: “It is really exciting to showcase Barbour International at this season’s London Fashion Week Men’s. The brand has come a long way since 1936 when Duncan Barbour introduced the first motorcycling suit yet it has stayed true to its biking heritage. The distinctive Barbour International black and yellow badge signifies a brand that is authentic, real and truly original.”
