autumn winter 2018
From the very beginning, the Barbour story has had a maritime influence. John Barbour set up his first store in South Shields in the North East of England in 1894 providing garments for sailors, fishermen, rivermen and dockers to protect them from the worst of the North Sea weather.
Our Nautical collection takes its inspiration from this coastal, naval heritage and sea faring past. Colours for the season are inspired by the North Sea, with navy, seaweed and mist. Wool trims in naval shapes are mixed with feature linings, nautical striped knits, double pocket shirts and coastal themed tees.
We’ve partnered with two individuals who embody this nautical heritage and live in stunning coastal areas of Britain, to discover more about this season’s collection, and how it suits life beside the sea.
First, we’ll head to Dorset to meet coastal-inspired landscape photographer, Arran Witheford, to learn more about his coastal lifestyle, how he first got into Coastal landscape photography, and how the coast inspires him.
Then, we’ll head to Cornwall to meet founder of The Hidden Hut and author, Simon Stallard. Famed for its simple, freshly cooked seafood served outdoors, The Hidden Hut is found tucked away along the National Trust coastal path at Porthcurnick Beack. We’ll discover the story of The Hidden Hut, how Simon is inspired by the Cornish coast, and hear about what is next in store for him.
