NOAH and Barbour have followed up last year’s collaboration by presenting a new joint capsule. The new collection, which was teased in NOAH’s Spring/Summer 2021 lookbook, brings bold prints to classic Barbour silhouettes, with archive jackets from the 1980s acting as the focal point.
The two jackets are the Beaufort wax jacket — one of Barbour’s best-known silhouettes — which has been finished with an all-over paisley print, and the Bedale, which was designed for equestrian use and is covered with an eye-catching zebra print. The paisley and zebra prints are also used on a range of accessories, including the sports hat and sports cap, as well as a backpack finished with expandable pockets, drawstring closure and buckle fastening.
Unveiling the collection, NOAH co-founder and creative director Brendon Babenzien said, “There is no substitute for quality. Barbour has always stood for quality outerwear that not only stands up to the elements on behalf of its original owners, but, more often than not, lives on far beyond that. That’s why we love Barbour -– they represent the best in quality and style, a combination not often found.”
“The prints this season were inspired by the eclectic style of English dressing and interiors; we appreciate how the English youth have always taken quite traditional patterns and made them their own. Truly classic patterns take on the personality of the wearer and therefore can be seen as either conservative or wild depending on the attitude of the person wearing it.”
