Barbour Beacon Quilted Jackets AW21

Bundle up in Barbour Beacon Quilted Jackets

In terms of the perfect warmth to weight ratio, quilted jackets trump most outerwear options out there. Where billowy down jackets rely on bulk and rain coats lean on light, waterproof shells, the quilted jacket meets somewhere in the middle, seamlessly fusing the two.

Linked closely to the countryside and often the first choice of equestrians, the quilted jacket has more recently enjoyed a return to the limelight within a streetwear capacity. Brands across the board have been reaching for the faithful silhouette to combat temperamental weather without compromising on style. So whether it’s chucking it down outside, gale-force winds, or somewhat mild, this midweight silhouette is suited to the lot.

Not to be biased but we reckon Barbour Beacon’s quilted jackets are particularly special. Not only are they super practical but they’re also peppered with parent company Barbour’s iconic design cues which are equal parts identifiable as they are desirable. Coming in a range of styles and colourways, Barbour Beacon has ticked every box with its latest quilted jacket collection. Read on to take a closer look…

Two top choices from the range are the Barbour Beacon Starling Quilted Jacket in black and the Barbour Beacon Starling Quilted Jacket in olive – twin styles presented in contrasting shades. The latter option feels quintessentially Barbour, it’s whipped up in an earthy green which really feels suited to adventures in the great outdoors. The body of the garment, as you’ve probably already guessed, is completely quilted showcasing a classic diamond pattern throughout. The fill in the jacket’s baffles subtly bulks it up, making it slightly puffier than your standard jacket all while boosting its heat retention capability.

The black iteration is constructed in the exact same manner, boasting the same contemporary hip-length, tonal corduroy collar, easy snap fastening and spacious bellow pockets. The Barbour Beacon logo also features at the bottom half, symbolising the jacket’s origin from the youthful sub-label and the brand’s overall ties to the north east of England, and more specifically, the Beacon Lighthouse in its native South Shields.

Here the Starling Quilted Jackets are layered with the Barbour Berber Fleece Liner and the Barbour Beacon Twill overshirt respectively. Both are available at Aphrodite now.

Certainly no one trick pony, the quilted jacket oozes versatility and can be donned all year round. Therefore, if you were looking for an investment piece you may have just stumbled across a winning style here. In fact, we know you have.

SS21 Rick Owens Drkshdw

Rick Owens DRKSHDW SS21

Rick Owens isn’t called ‘The Lord of Darkness’ for nothing, despite spending his formative years on America’s west coast his collections seldom depict the easy, breezy spirit of Cali’ living. Instead, subdued palettes and theatrical styles intertwine, acting as the cornerstone of the Paris-based designer’s aesthetic and heavily informing the immensely popular Rick Owens DRKSHDW offshoot. 

Established in 2005, the diffusion line borrows the avant-garde sensibility conveyed throughout the Rick Owens main collection, reworking the label’s iconic designs but at a much more accessible price point. This has enabled the sub-line to garner an international cult following in which streetwear aficionados don Owens’ show-stopping garments more like a badge of honour rather than a piece of clothing. 

Calling on Greek mythology, the most recent Rick Owens DRKSHDW capsule centers on Phlegethon – one of the five rivers of the underworld, translating to ‘fire-flaming’ in English and bleakly described as ‘a stream of hell’. Taking aim at the pandemic and the anguish the world has endured as a result, in Rick’s own words the collection is a “middle finger to doom.” 

Rick Owens Hoodie

As ever, the offering boasts considerable weight in the form of exaggerated proportions and long-line silhouettes, with a defiant attitude palpable across every single category from tees, trousers and accessories. The label’s synonymous triple-black palette is broken up with hints of plum and dust filtering through, perhaps a creative nod to the expression ‘light at the end of the tunnel’.  

Rick Owens SS21

Standouts for us are the Phlegethon shorts and trousers alike; characterised in true Rick Owens style by their drop crotch construction and rock ‘n’ roll rendering. Fiercely opaque and sustainably crafted from organic cotton, each pair is perfectly aligned with the label’s grunge allure. Tees in the collection stretch far beyond the hips with elongated ribbons and Egyptian graphics upping the ante visually while the signature drawstring detail brings both style and substance to various pieces.  

Rick Owens DRKSHDW Collection

Though dominated by dramatic tones and a bold bravado, the Rick Owens DRKSHDW SS21 collection delivers a positive message that’s suitably in tune with the times – to stand up against adversity wherever possible. Shop key Rick Owens DRKSHDW SS21 pieces online and in-store at Aphrodite Clothing. 

Five Ways To Style AW20 Trends

Seasonal Looks For Every Occasion

If like us you’re situated in the Northern Hemisphere, last week you will have officially waved goodbye to summer’s balmy climes and hello to autumn’s delightfully tricky weather which we’re all aware takes no prisoners. With the inclement conditions arriving thick and fast already, we’ve taken the liberty of showcasing five ways to style AW20 trends for men.

Mens Style AW20

Whether you’re keen to get back on track with knitwear, embrace full-force fleece or can’t help but still savour last season’s easy breezy shirting styles, we’ve incorporated something to suit everyone’s needs, just take a look below…

Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 1

A year that will go down in the history books, 2020 has ushered in a sequence of precarious living like we’ve never experienced before and we’re sure many of you found yourselves stuck at home on furlough over the spring / summer period. While some may have relished the slower pace of life amidst the outer chaos; others may have been itching to get back to the grind. Whatever the circumstances, getting back into a routine and returning to the office can undoubtedly feel challenging, which is why this first outfit uncovers a harmonious balance between nonchalant dressing and work-place appropriateness.

Men's AW20 Clothing Trends

Teaming a functional Nudie Jeans denim jacket up top with a crisp white Vivienne Westwood shirt and a timeless Ralph Lauren pea coat enables a fuss-free day-to-night transition. Doubling-up on layers ensures the upper ensemble is warm enough for the journey in and out of work while the mix of smart and casual means this look can take you from A to B seamlessly. White Axel Arigato Clean 90 trainers and neutral, turned-up trousers further elevate the fusion of suave, laid-back styling.

Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 2

For the man that’s always on the go, this next look takes note of your hectic day-to-day schedule while still encouraging you to take pride in your own personal style. Here to stay, the utility trend is as prevalent now as it ever has been. Having been subjected to countless interpretations throughout the years, it’s down to outdoor-centric brand Patagonia and Parisian powerhouse Kenzo to work its charm in this case.

Canada Goose AW20

Utilising a cosy and wholly versatile Norse Projects sweatshirt as its base, the upper ensemble first unfolds with an insulating Canada Goose gilet which is guaranteed to come in handy for those transitional days when critical weather is most likely. The initial look is then topped off with a waterproof Patagonia tote bag for keeping all your possessions safely stored, paired alongside a front buckle fastening for heavy-duty edge.

The lower-half of the outfit leans on khaki Kenzo cargo pants, detailed traditionally with a multitude of pocket space and a loose fit while Nike Blazer Mid 77’s sign off in retro Swoosh style.

Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 3

An AW20 look that means business. This suave combination comprises key pieces from a range of world-famous brands, including Ami, Stone Island, Comme des Garçons, Moncler and Mallet London. Sure to prove ideal for formal meetings set in the cityscape, a Comme des Garçons pinstripe shirt is layered atop a Stone Island roll neck, this unusual but ingenious mixing of brands presents a preppy and authentic aesthetic – akin to something you might find in the tangled, bustling streets of Manhattan.

Stone Island AW20

Breathable sock boots by Mallet and a vividly coloured Moncler cross body bag round off the outfit, ensuring comfort is key on foot and that all your essential items can come on those impromptu adventures with you.

Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 4

For those days when the cold really draws in. This AW20 offering brings both form and function to the forefront, with a focus on testing temperatures and essential winter traction. Opting for a Shearling Patagonia gilet to the outer, the weather-focused pairing includes a water repellent Belstaff overshirt nestled underneath for enhanced practicality on the arms, while a saturated pop of orange peeks out from the Paul Smith hoodie below.

Patagonia AW20 Gilet

Simple Stone Island cargo pants incorporate a utility-driven vibe on the legs, married with heritage hiking boot brand Danner on foot, giving the wearer heightened stability on slippery winter roads. If you feel like it, switch out the boots in favour of trainers to transform this outfit from outdoor explorer to event-goer.

Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 5

Turn the vacay shirt you never got a chance to wear this summer into an autumnal layering piece, we’ve gone for a revere collar number from Albam in this case. A playful DSquared tee adds a swatch of necessary core colour, combined with a dependable, slim-fitting pair of Nudie Jeans on the legs – we recommend adding these Steady Eddie II’s onto your essentials list! On foot, the brand with The Three Stripes takes heritage up a notch with an eternal classic, the adidas SL 80.

DSquared AW20 Collection

Mixing and matching certain items can bring this look up to speed with the ever-changing weather, for instance, simply layer up with a parka to breeze through testing winter conditions.

How To Relax Your Home Wardrobe With Barbour Beacon

Barbour Beacon SS20

If you’re feeling like your sense of style is pretty limited at the moment, don’t stress – the whole world is with you on that one. Just like the rest of the globe, here in the UK a state of lockdown has imposed a ‘new normal’ for almost six weeks now, which has presented a whole host of unprecedented circumstances.

While we all continue to strictly follow the government guidelines and adapt to this new state of being, it seems that in the madness of it all, our wardrobes have hit the back burner. I’m sure you’ll agree that there’s only so many pieces which can be deemed ‘appropriate’ for home office working or that daily exercise allowance we all treasure… In fact, does anyone remember the last time they donned a pair of jeans? No, us neither.

Fashion at the moment is certainly not the pressing priority it once was, and nor should it be within the grand scheme of things, however, it is just one of several adjustments that we’ve all gotten used to in recent weeks. With that said, we’ve taken a brief break from our new reality to help you implement a more relaxed approach to dressing with a helping hand from our trusty North-East neighbour, Barbour Beacon.

So, what exactly is on the agenda? Well we’re leaning on comfort, comfort and, you guessed it, a little more comfort. For the time being we recommend that you put the restrictive traits of denim, tailoring and outerwear to the back of your mind in favour of clobber that’s stretchy, soft on the skin and cosy – because let’s face it – downtime is the only memo scribbled on our calendars right now.

Barbour Beacon T-Shirt

To start off we’re placing our attention on finding the ideal base layer. Whether short-sleeved or long-sleeved, a comfortable t-shirt is the foundation of any great loungewear ensemble, so you’ll be pleased to hear that Barbour Beacon have plenty in their SS20 vault for you to feast your eyes on. For the most part, the Barbour Beacon tees here at Aphrodite are crafted from comfy cotton, opt for a short-sleeved cut and bear iconic credentials from the South Shields native.

In case you didn’t know, South Shields is nestled just up the road from our base here in Sunderland, with the region’s coastal backdrop informing many of Barbour Beacon’s garments, not to mention their entire global identity, which is why you’ll see a lighthouse emblem across the sub-brand’s whole collection. Below we’ve picked out a selection of breezy, unrestrictive t-shirts that will add a dose of Northern heritage to your rotation along with no-nonsense reliability.

Barbour Beacon Lighthouse T-Shirts

Of course, you can’t always rely on the days and weeks ahead to deliver t-shirt weather, so it’s always a good idea to build up your layers, whether you’re lounging around the house or seeking a breath of fresh air – warmth and comfort should be key during quarantine. Thankfully, #StayingAtHome with Barbour Beacon means exactly that. The brand’s SS20 offerings boast the perfect balance between versatility, insulation and street-ready styling, although the streets may have to hold on until they can claim their turn.

Barbour Beacon Fleece

Below we’ve picked out three snug silhouettes that will come in handy while self-isolating is still advisable. Our personal favourite is the Barbour Beacon Foley Fleece, not only does it have an outdoorsy, retro vibe to it, but it’s also reversible, meaning it can take you from one place to the next with ease. In the case of lockdown, opt to interchange between the textured sherpa fleece side and the smooth, cobalt poly face as you juggle working from home, your weekly food shop and accompanying man’s best friend for his daily stroll.

Barbour Beacon

Although it remains unclear when exactly we’ll be granted the green-light back to our old lives, we hope that for now you can find some creativity through the crisis by striving to relax your home wardrobe with Barbour Beacon. As always, thanks for taking the time to read this feature and be sure to stay safe through these extraordinary times!

Balmain Denim Jacket

Style Guide : How To Wear Denim

Denim Styling For The Modern Man

Deriving from the work-mans’ aesthetic, denim has been a notable part of mens’ fashion culture for over a century, revolutionising the way men dress and express their style. Heavily influenced over the years by politics, music, art and youth culture, denim has become a timeless fabric in various forms, catering to every man in every generation. Whether it be in traditional indigo jeans, to distressed jackets in acid wash, denim has evolved beyond its originals means, allowing it to complement any outfit for any occasion.

Smart Casual

The first thing to come to someone’s mind when thinking of denim is a classic pair of jeans, being a statement piece for most male wardrobes. Being something that can easily smarten up an outfit without trying too hard, jeans are now a go-to for most day to night affairs. The versatility in the garment allows you to easily adapt to any formality, whether they be paired with a crisp white shirt and dress shoes for a smart day time look, or with some sneakers and a bold graphic tee for a more vibrant night time look.

One style that a pair of jeans is prominent in is the classic 50’s mod trend. Heavily influenced by music and modern style icons like Liam Gallagher, this look represents the essence of mens’ formal style clashing with a casual comfort.  Jeans have become a quintessential part of the look, with a roll up to highlight the socks typically styled with desert boots or dress shoes. Try styling it with an over shirt to layer up with various textures to nod to the smart comfort that the mod look boasts.

The Denim Jacket

Oozing style blended with a hint of edginess, a denim jacket is the perfect addition to any outfit. An easy way to dress up a basic silhouette, a denim jacket is the ideal ‘chuck-on’ that ends up making the statement for the full look.

Challenge yourself by stepping away from the traditional sense of a denim jacket and become bold with your choices, going for a treated version. With hand done distressing, a large logo embossment to the back alongside intricate metal detailing, the Balmain denim jacket featured in this look is forefront in its evolution. Let the jacket do the talking, pairing it with a darker hue such as black or a deep indigo navy to highlight the structure of the fabric and the natural wear and tear it will provide. Adding character and flair to your outfit.

Double Denim

Usually a phrase that would spark dread amongst most, double denim is a trend that everyone should get in on. Allowing you to really appreciate it in all its’ forms, doubling it up gives you the chance to layer up on texture and shades, forming a coherent and versatile look.

DSquared2 is a main competitor amongst denim and experimentation, providing several treatments and design accents to nurture your style needs. With their statement distressing and paint splatter, layering up their items can really intensify the manipulation of the classic material, resulting in a raw and versatile appearance. Take advantage of the chance to layer up and introduce new prints amongst the acid wash, with a bold stripe to help break up the outfit. Match with a pair of sneakers to finish off the look.

Denim allows you not only to nod towards a history of style, culture and revolution in your clothing, but also have fun and experiment with layering, fabric treatments and prints. Despite being a classic piece in menswear fashion, modernization of it over the years has introduced a youthful and raw aesthetic.

If that’s indeed the case, then lucky you because we’ve just found ourselves in possession of the perfect piece to see you into daring territory. Unapologetically bold, this Nike Hooded Fleece arrives brimming with explosive hues and ‘70s design cues.

Exactly what you need to enliven an autumnal rotation that’s seemingly become mundane, this new-season Swoosh style comes bundled in neon pigments of orange, peach, coral and purple which are then executed with cosy Sherpa fleece and nylon overlays.

Though immensely soft and comforting to the outer, this Nike Hooded Fleece strikes the perfect temperature balance internally thanks to its breathable mesh body. This type of stark fabric contrast on each side is intentional and ensures the design can cultivate the ideal warm-to-cool ratio amidst the unpredictable British weather, which let’s face it, we all love to hate.

Elsewhere, the silhouette’s high-octane aesthetic is bolstered by distinctive Nike branding at the chest and royal-blue trims at its pocket and cuffs. Additional details include a contemporary ½ zip closure and capacious hood with Sherpa fleece lining.

And though it’s certainly not reserved for the faint-hearted, we encourage you to take a leap of faith with this one, you won’t regret it.
