Image gallery: Paul Smith and Barbour collaboration

Last week, Drapers reported that two of fashion’s best-known UK brands - Barbour and Paul Smith - were to come together in a collision of British heritage. Here we show the first pictures of the collection, which is due to launch in September.

The men’s collection takes inspiration from the mining, shipbuilding, farming and fishing products that have shaped Barbour and been central to its North East roots. Construction in the collection is rugged, while labelling, trims and wool striped Breton linings offer consistency and unity.

The men’s collection features five pieces: the Seafarer, the NSO Down Jacket, the Fieldman Trad and the Stevedore shirt, as well as the Colliery Pant - traditional cord trousers based on mining breeches - in four colours.

The women’s collection adopts a playful approach, reworking two of Barbour’s most popular styles: the International and the Beadnell. Both jackets, with colourful linings, are intended for autumn 12.

The collection will be stocked in Barbour stores in South Shields, Carnaby Street, Covent Garden and Spitalfields, as well as Paul Smith stores and independents.
