With many of us reinventing our wardrobes with bright colours and joyous dressing it is no surprise that Barbour has followed in toe, with a collection of outerwear designed by women for women. Teaming up with the Serbia-born designer Roksanda Ilinčić, Barbour International completely steps away from its usual aesthetic with a collection that dialogues between the two brands.
Roksanda noted she likes her collaborations to always be unexpected and take her down a path she wouldn’t have necessarily discovered on her own. That said, her focus for Barbour International X Roksanda was to design a protective collection of outerwear that allowed women to do their everyday life and not be restricted.
Prior to her master’s degree at Central St Martins in womenswear, the London-based designer studied Artictecure becoming renowned for bright colours, structures and forms collaborating previously with the likes of architect David Adjaye.
