Inspired by travel and adventure with a focus on practicality for winter, it combines the signature ALEXACHUNG British wit and Barbour’s charming, classic style. Available now at Coggleswe took a deeper look into the collection…

Synonymous with luxe fashion and British weather, the latest autumn/winter capsule collection between the two brands is seamless. Highly anticipated, the collaboration follows on in the same classic style as previous collections but takes into consideration the need for multi-purpose wardrobe pieces.

If you have ever wondered what Barbour jacket does Alexa Chung wear? The answer is, all of them! Model turned fashion designer, Alexa hails from rural Hampshire where a Barbour wax jacket was part of her daily uniform, worn regularly when mucking out her pony as well as to school.

Some of my happiest memories have unfolded in a Barbour. The smell of the wax alone makes me feel like I’m home

An established trench coat and quilted jacket devotee, Alexa has been donning Barbour style season after season – long before the world followed.

Explaining that the new collection is inspired by the beauty and practicality of outfits worn by pioneers and explorers in the early 20th century such as Amelia Earhart. We can see that it has adopted the same mindset, that protection against the elements is the name of the game. Focussing entirely on outerwear, it defines ‘travel, adventure and discovery along with an underlying need for protection.’

When speaking on the new collection, Alexa said:

We were keen to approach the design process of this particular collection with a metaphorical suitcase filled with unique inspiration and fresh ideas, all of which were conceived during lockdown. We began by delving deep into the image research phase and opted, this time, to take the road less travelled, moving away from what might be considered the more ‘traditional’ reference points used in previous seasons, such as equestrian and outdoor pursuits, and entering into a new realm of possibilities.

Key pieces from the collection include a quilted jacket, which also comes in a longline version, available in khaki. As well as the iconic Barbour jacket, re-imagined in a two-tone colourway and finished off with gold zip details.

When asked what her favourite piece in the collection is:

The Tonal Pip in the aforementioned zinc colourway is soon to be mine and I look forward to wearing it as I perform a rain dance with my hood up under the grey skies of England. The new dark camel colourway makes a spectacular entrance on the Jackie; an oversized silhouette offset with a dinky tie neck detail, the perfect raincoat in which to grab someone’s attention.’
