One of my favourite fashion designers, Alice Temperley is about to collaborate with one of Britain’s most famous heritage brands – Barbour.
The iconic wax Barbour jackets are set to be revamped by Temperley using her own trademark style (incorporating leopard print linings) alongside classic winter knits from a reasonable designer price tag of just £249.
The debut label will be named Barbour Gold Label by Temperley and will comprise of eight key pieces. These range from cosy knitted cardigans to leather and wax jackets with belts; but the collection does not stop there as it is rumoured that this will also continue through to spring/summer ’12 adding accessories and other apparel to the already buzzing collection.
“I grew up in the countryside and have worn Barbour since I was a child so I was thrilled when asked to collaborate.
“The collection has elements of both Temperley and Barbour and is a great mix of fashion and functionality.
For all those Barbour-loving enthusiasts (like me), I’m assuming pre-order be an option…
