Barbour meets Wedgwood
This season, fall in love with the brand new Barbour Wedgwood collection as these two power houses of Great British design come together to create a capsule collection like no other. Fusing together the much loved patterns from Wedgwood’s rich heritage with the classic cuts of Barbour jackets, shirting and tops, you’ll find two distinctive Wedgwood patterns in the collection; the iconic blue Hibiscus print, and the bold red Pashmina print.
With a combined history of over 350 years, Barbour and Wedgwood are known for their impeccable craftsmanship and continue to manufacture high quality pieces by hand in their British based factories. Wedgwood was established in 1759 in Staffordshire, Outdoor and Country’s very own home county, and still produces premium pottery from their Barlaston factory. Over the years, they have collaborated with designers such as Vera Wang and Jasper Conran, and designed collections with iconic British institutions from Topshop to Beatrix Potter. Just like Barbour, Wedgwood has a long association with royal families, beginning with Queen Charlotte who commissioned her Queen’s Ware service in 1765, to Queen Catherine the Great of Russia’s ‘Frog Service’: a dinner and dessert set fit for 50 people, emblazoned with a frog motif to represent her summer palace that was built on a frog marsh outside of St. Petersburg.
The Barbour Wedgwood Collaboration
This capsule collection sees two beautiful prints adorn jacket linings, collars and cuffs, and be showcased on shirts and t-shirts for an elegant, heritage inspired look. The classic Wedgwood blue Hibiscus print projects a regal feel through oriental influences infused with royal blues, whites and stunning gold shades. The bold red and white Pashmina print is inspired by the chintz textile patterns of colonial India. This feminine print is paired with the classic Barbour olive for that added country charm.
