Barbour x White Mountaineering
After much anticipation and speculation on various blogs and forums, the Barbour x White Mountaineering collaboration has finally been launched. Yosuke Aizawa’s White Mountaineering label has merged with British Heritage brand Barbour for one of the most mouth-watering collaborations of 2015. Combining years of technical knowledge and tradition, the collaboration sees a range of waxed jackets, bags, shirts, t-shirts and shorts hit the market in a variety of eye-catching patterns.
Aizawa has used Barbour as inspiration for his White Mountaineering collection for years and even beforehand when working for Comme Des Garcons. His recognition for the love of Barbour in Japan has played a massive part in the collaboration, allowing him to take the traditional jackets that the Japanese love so much and give them a modern touch.
With that in mind, a custom Japanese Tempest illustration print has been designed incorporating the Barbour Beacon logo, to adorn many of the garments in both navy and stone colourways. Barbour have taken their wealth of knowledge of working with waxed cotton’s and merged it with the technical details and Japanese inspired print to produce some mouth-watering jackets.
A range of separates accent the collection perfectly for anyone wanting to buy into the collaboration but might not want the exuberance of the double wave-print jacket / shorts combo.
The impressive collection is set to turn heads as we head into the Spring Summer 2015 season with one of the most-talked about collaborations of recent times. Garments are priced between £69.00 and £549.00 and can be bought from our Barbour x White Mountaineering category
