AW16: Barbour to Launch Women’s Timeless Originals Collection, Fitted Tailored Pieces

LONDON — Barbour is putting a tailored, fashion spin on its classic outerwear for women, including the waxed jackets, with a collection that’s set to land at stores including Bloomingdale’s.
Women wearing the British family-owned brand’s garments that were originally unisex is where Barbour ladieswear collections originate, so the Barbour menswear team designed the relaunched Women’s Heritage Collection: Timeless Originals, split into two capsules, reflecting the great British weather – Raindrop and Snowdrop.

‘Timeless Originals is a collection that takes some of our most iconic pieces and updates them for the modern woman with contemporary detailing. Expect some of our most classic styles in A-Line silhouettes, with modern essentials such as knitwear and trousers to complete a very minimalist, timeless look.’

-Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear and Accessories, Barbour

The collection features outerwear with slimmer, edgier silhouettes. Coats and jackets are fitted around the shoulders, and some have A-line shapes and cuff sleeves. The new styles are also meant for layering, with lightweight moleskin linings. Some coats have detachable faux fur collars.

Arriving just in time for the inclement autumn weather, the aptly named ‘Rain Drop’ capsule offers exciting updates to our most famous rain-repellent hero: the wax jacket. Among the pieces to get a makeover is the classic Bedale wax jacket, which — in addition to having more fitted shoulders and an A-line shape — features cuffed sleeves, printed wax outers, and a neater, smaller collar than its counterpart in the mainline women’s collection. It also has a chunky zipper and stud details.

As the temperatures drop, it’s time to embrace the Snow Bedale, with its detachable faux fur collar, in the ‘Snow Drop’ capsule of the range.
The collection also includes short, quilted horse riding jackets and long storm coats, a rain parka and a gilet, all with more fitted silhouettes.
