Barbour for Land Rover launches Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection
Land Rover and Barbour continue to demonstrate their synergy through British heritage with understated luxury collection.
Inspiration taken from Land Rover’s functionality, style and suitability from both country and urban environments.
Unique collection designed in celebration of Land Rovers Heritage in Rugby.
Range Rover’s craftsmanship, superior quality and finish inspire the season’s women’s collection.
Embracing the rich heritage of these two very British brands, the Autumn Winter 15 Barbour for Land Rover collection takes elegance to a new level combining luxurious fabrics with classically tailored garments. Modernity, precision and sophistication are at the heart of the range. The collections for men and women combine functionality with style, taking inspiration this season in the ladies collection from the Range Rover, a true design icon.
Within the men’s collection, leather, suede, wax and quilting are skilfully combined with tweed to create a collection full of exclusive design features. Leather piping, corozo buttons and a signature Barbour for Land Rover stud add a high standard of detail. Car coats and blazers are beautifully cut for ease of driving. Knitwear is subtle and elegant in 100% merino wool and cashmere blends. Wool trousers are beautifully cut in co-ordinated colours.
New for this season, Barbour for Land Rover celebrates the sport of rugby with a special capsule collection. Already proud supporters of the sport, Barbour and Land Rover have used their renowned expertise in design and functionality to create a Barbour for Land Rover rugby range especially for the fans. Gilets, shirts, rugby shirts, tees and sweaters feature alongside iconic quilts and waxes. With the practicality and precision synonymous to both brands, the Rugby collection is beautifully co-ordinated to keep spectators warm and dry. The strong navy and red influence adds style. Attention to detail is paramount with leather trims and exclusive branding.
Paul Wilkinson Global Marketing Director, Barbour said “This season, the inspiration for the collections comes from the refinement, craftsmanship and high level of quality that is synonymous with Land Rover. The result is elegant and well-tailored clothing that complements the Land Rover brand. There is a strong synergy between our two companies – we are both established British brands with years of heritage, renowned for our understated style and links to the British countryside yet we are both just as comfortable in an urban environment. It is exciting to take this season’s collections to a new level of luxury and sophistication.”
Lindsey Weaver, Global Licensing & Branded Goods Director for Land Rover said: “This partnership continues to demonstrate the passion of British design, whilst the addition of a new range designed especially for rugby fans celebrates Land Rover’s heritage in the sport. Both brands complement each other with their commitment to producing ranges which satisfy both luxury and functionality, allowing them to fit stylishly and effortlessly into all environments.”
The AW15 collection will be available in store from August 2015 through Barbour and Land Rover distribution channels worldwide.
