Barbour x Baracuta

In a groundbreaking collaboration that brings together two iconic British brands, Baracuta and Barbour have joined forces to create a capsule collection for Autumn Winter 2023. This unique partnership marks a significant milestone for both companies and promises to deliver a blend of heritage and modernity that pays tribute to their rich legacies.

Barbour, originally founded in 1894 to provide weather protection for fishermen and mariners, has evolved into a global brand offering a diverse range of clothing and accessories. From its iconic outerwear to contemporary fashion collections, Barbour draws inspiration from its rich history dating back to 1910. As a fifth-generation family-owned brand, it's now sold in over 55 countries. This legacy of excellence and commitment to quality aligns seamlessly with the iconic style of Baracuta, making the collaboration between Barbour and Baracuta a remarkable union of legacy and innovation.

The heart of this collaboration beats with the celebration of Baracuta's One and Only Original Harrington Jacket, famously known as the G9. Born in Manchester in 1938, just a year after the inception of Baracuta – making 2023 its 85th Anniversary. This collection breathes new life into the iconic G9 by infusing it with Barbour's signature details, resulting in a contemporary interpretation of a beloved classic.

The Ivy League Inspiration:

Inspired by the timeless 'Ivy League Style,' which originated in early 20th-century America, this collection captures the essence of sophisticated yet casual fashion. Initially embraced by elite East Coast American students who sought versatile clothing for both lectures and sports, the style later found a devoted following among British fashion enthusiasts in the 1960s. The UK's interpretation added a touch of modishness with elements such as workwear, and panelled flat caps. The Barbour x Baracuta collection pays homage to this heritage with three distinct styles in various colourways.

Two Types of Tartan:

The collection showcases three distinctive outerwear styles, each featuring a captivating combination of both brands' signature tartans: the Barbour Classic Tartan and Baracuta Fraser Tartan, which was bequeathed to Baracuta in 1938 by Brigadier Simon Christopher Joseph Fraser, the 25th Clan Chief of the Clan Fraser of Lovat.
