Barbour Beacon Heritage Collection: Fishing in the storms of Savile Row
The deep blue of the high seas contrasts with the bright yellows of a coastline lighthouse
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing. Even those who don’t believe in this saying must admit that the British have a fashionable answer to any weather condition – as proven by these waxed cotton jackets, which look equally appropriate for clay shooting or a stroll through the City of London. They form part of the ‘Beacon’ heritage collection, the result of a collaboration with Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons.
This time, the chosen characters of inspiration are the fishermen who defy the rough seas surrounding the UK. The jackets and short coats combine the deep blue of the high seas with the bright yellows of a coastline lighthouse, all the while remaining simple, functional and pure. Classic sweaters made from linen and cotton should be ideal for would-be fisherman, even on those days when all four seasons take place at once.
