Designers to Know: Barbour Ladieswear Pre / AW18

Iconic English luxury fashion brand Barbour began its journey in 1894, when founder John Barbour set up his business in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the North East, with Barbour’s headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Barbour is most well known for its classic wax jackets, but in the 125 years since its inception the brand has branched out from its countrywear roots. Today, the heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe, with trousers, shirts, socks, knitwear and a range of accessories available alongside timeless coats and jackets.

The Pre-AW18 and AW18 mainline ladieswear collections showcase classic pieces to see you from summer into winter, with this season’s colour palette incorporating the fresh colours of Sea blue, Sea glass and Ice white, with navy and grey marls as core colourways. The Coastal collection for women is designed for the stylishly active, offering the very best in casual wear for time spent outdoors whatever the weather.

Outerwear from the Coastal range embraces a sportswear inspired look with soft baffle quilt jackets, gilets and lightweight waterproof, breathable pieces. The laid-back clothing range is perfect for transitional weather, with stylish striped jersey dresses and tops embracing nautical signatures with fine rope lacing detail. Lightweight cotton jumpers provide perfect layering pieces, each garment adorned with the iconic Beacon lining and branding, denoting the image of the lighthouse that has stood proudly at the mouth of the River Tyne since 1882.

The latest Barbour ladieswear range is perfect for the in-between period before Winter takes hold, offering a stylish range of lightweight layers and weatherproof essentials.
