Over the years, Barbour have collaborated with a range of exquisite British brands; from Wedgwood to Land Rover, this quintessentially British brand has combined its design know-how with iconic companies who share the commitment to producing a high quality product that customers are proud to own. This season, Barbour has collaborated with Brompton Bicycles – makers of the iconic folding bikes – to create a capsule collection designed specifically for urban cycling. This compact collection includes both Barbour’s iconic waxed cotton styles and weather-ready waterproof jackets for rainy days when protection is essential against the elements, particularly on the office commute!
Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear and Accessories, Barbour said “Barbour and Brompton are two brands renowned for their innovation – Barbour with their iconic jackets and Brompton with their personal transport solutions. This collaboration is all about practicality and fitness for purpose and fits the ethos of both brands. The jackets are designed to be worn on and off the bike and will appeal to urban bike riders who love the Barbour style combined with technical features, all engineered for performance.”
Waxed cotton and waterproof breathable jackets for men and women come in a choice of colours. The men’s Merton jacket in navy and sage and the women’s Bromley jacket take Barbour’s new innovative Dry Wax, a hard wearing waxed cotton in a pure hydrocarbon which feels crunchy to the touch and is extremely water repellent, whatever the weather. Functionality is key – with four storage pockets, mesh tartan linings to remove excess heat, two way zips and reflector strips, these jackets are vented for breathability and have a longer back length to protect the wearer. Articulated sleeves allow for ease of movement on the bike. Whether you’re a life-long Brompton rider, a Barbour veteran, none or all of the above, any inner-city rider is sure to love this latest collection.
