Introducing the SS17 Barbour Tartan collection, inspired by our founder John Barbour, who was originally from Scotland. He never forgot his Scottish roots, and used Tartan linings throughout the original collections.
The Tartan seen in today’s collections was originally designed in 2002 by tartan specialists Kinloch Anderson, in collaboration with our Vice Chairman, Helen Barbour. This season’s men’s and women’s collections offer a clean and sophisticated silhouette, with colours drawn from our exclusive dress tartan.
Eager to stay true to our Scottish heritage, we’re celebrating this season’s collection with a three day tour of the Scottish Highlands. Throughout our trip, we’ll be sharing films of our journey, and will be keeping you updated on the Barbour blog with the best places we visit, along with must see attractions.
Watch out for more on…
Isle of Skye
The largest island in the Inner Hebrides, the Isle of Skye is connected to the North West of Scotland by bridge. Expect vast landscapes and enchanting castles.
Located where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth on Scotland’s North East coast, Inverness is the Highlands largest city, and is a cultural hive of activity. You’ll find it is the perfect backdrop for long walks along the river, and exploring the many museums and gardens that are meticulously cared for.
Found on the shores of Loch Linne, Fort William is known as the gateway to Ben Nevis, and is the highest peak in the UK. This picturesque town offers beautiful views and some of the best walks in Scotland.
Watch out for our guides to the Isle of Skye, Inverness and Fort William over the next month as the Barbour Tartan campaign continues…
