Pitti Uomo SS10 collection report: Barbour

    It may have been a spring/summer presentation but that didn't stop outerwear specialist Barbour from asserting its ambition to become a trans-seasonal brand.

    One of the highlights on the Barbour stand was the extended International range which included a number of vintage-look reinterpretations of the classic multi-pocket motorcycle jacket. Reworked in a lightweight thorn-proof cotton and various grades of aged fabrics the SS10 versions found the brand removing the 'International' patch from pockets and attaching a larger oiled Union flag patch to the left-hand shoulders.

    Barbour's ongoing collaboration with Japanese designer To Ki To, just gets better with every season. Spring 10's trophy piece is a fitted, olive-coloured field jacket with contrast brown corduroy collar, a single chest patch pocket, extended cuffs and a nifty reserve pocket at the back of the coat. With its rear shoulder vents, zipped game pockets, and ripstop cord tightening hem, the jacket's back details are particularly impressive. We look forward to the new Barbour design collaborations scheduled for announcement later this year.Source URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2010/06/pitti-uomo-ss10-collection-report.html
