Barbour celebrates this summer’s special events
As the UK comes under the spotlight this summer, Barbour celebrates with a range of special products that exude the ‘Best of British.’ Fresh and stylish, Barbour’s shapes and lightweight fabrics prove to be essential companions come rain or shine for a great British summer.
Starting the season with a sparkle, Barbour has teamed up with Swarovski Elements to create a beautiful modern twist on an iconic jacket. A Union Jack flag in glistening red, blue and white Swarovski Elements has been designed on the chest pocket of Barbour’s bestselling Ladies Rainbow International jacket. Inspired by Barbour’s biking heritage, the Rainbow International is belted, multi-pocketed and very biker chic. In navy blue, with a Union Jack lining, this limited edition jacket is a must for anyone wanting to celebrate in style this summer. It will be available to purchase from Selfridges, selected Barbour stores and from stockists worldwide from the end of May 2012.
The bright Union Jack lining also features on the Children’s Union Jack International Jacket, along with a Union Jack badge that sits proudly on the front of this classic Barbour biker style, further celebrating what is a momentous year for the UK.
With the extra bank holidays, what better excuse to head outdoors and celebrate the Royal Jubilee in style with Barbour’s range of Union Jack lined accessories? Featuring a vintage Union Jack print on the outside, the Canvas Print Shopper is perfect for a picnic offering more than enough space for a bottle of fizz and other essential outdoor goodies. The famous flag also appears on the Canvas Tarras Bag and the Canvas Knapsack, each featuring the iconic Beacon that sits at the mouth of the River Tyne in South Shields printed over the flag – further celebrating Barbour’s North East heritage.
Lucy Daisy, Floribunde and Mitsi Liberty linings are out in full bloom and ready to shine in full glory on Barbour Liberty lined Beadnell jackets and accessories from the Spring/Summer 2012 Classic collection. With a 4oz Sylkoil wax outer and beautiful soft floral printed cotton linings, the Flyweight Liberty Beadnell is the perfect companion for this season’s wardrobe.
Sarah Lawrenson, Barbour’s head of womenswear said: ”This summer is a very special time for us here in the UK and we’re celebrating the ‘Best of Britain’ with our Union Jack lined outerwear, accessories and special Swarovski Crystal jacket. Offering a different look for Spring/Summer, our collaboration with Liberty brings together the best from two iconic British brands, complementing each other perfectly across a wide range of products.”
