Heritage UK outerwear label, Barbour, has been keeping all warm and dry through four generations and more than 100 years. With an extensive archive and incomparable understanding of the needs of a country lifestyle, the label sharpened its contemporary edge with a successful collaboration with Japanese label TOKITO by Tokihito Yoshida. Though Barbour is one of those rare heritage brands that have been come into the spotlight and became newly relevant, its partnership with TOKITO gave it an interesting edge, combining Barbour's rich tradition and craftsmanship with TOKITO's eye for detail and Japanese simplicity.
