Barbour jackets are a wardrobe staple, and since outdoorsy trend gorpcore has been having a moment this year, you may have found yourself eyeing up the brand like never before. Luckily, Alexa Chung’s new designs for Barbour have arrived just in time for spring.
As a long time fan of Barbour, it makes sense that Alexa repeatedly partners with the brand to create refreshing, modern pieces that are both an ode to tradition and her own personal style. They’re reminiscent of the styles she herself used to wear at Glastonbury over the years, in fact.
As you can expect from the always on-trend Alexa Chung, her sixth collection with Barbour showcases the season’s top styles, from quilted coats to waxed jackets. She was inspired by the 90s for SS22, a decade which has influenced many recent trends, from low-rise jeans to mini skirts.
Speaking of the collection, Alexa says: ‘Although my attachment to my Barbour may have begun as a child somewhere in a field in Hampshire, it most certainly came of age at a British music festival. This season our collaboration explores the fruitful relationship between rock festivals and practical outerwear.’
The prices, which start at £249 and go up to £499, mean these jackets are definitely investment pieces. But just ask the Duchess of Cambridge how much wear you’ll get out of a quality Barbour jacket. Kate has been spotted a handful of times in two classic Barbour styles.
They come in sizes ranging from 6 to 18, and are all designed to be an oversized fit to create that easygoing festival vibe. Plus, the extra room means you can still wear chunky knits underneath. If you order a coat, you’ll also qualify for free shipping (which is offered for orders over £49). Happy shopping!
