The third season of The Beacon Heritage Collection sees the exceptional Tokihito Yoshida designed range move on once again, expertly fusing the heritage of Barbour design with Tokihito’s forward-thinking functionality.
The Driving, Horse-Riding and Bicycle Jackets are once again key pieces, but they are joined by new designs, based on Barbour’s expertise in outdoor-wear design and Yoshida’s meticulous eye for detail.
Barbour’s famous quilted jackets feature in the Beacon Heritage collection for the first time, taking heritage country designs and incorporating modern design and ergonomic principles. These quilted jackets are based on iconic models such as the Liddesdale, and retain classic Barbour elements such as cord patches and collars, Barbour Tartan lining, and of course the Sylkoil waxed cotton outer. These are merged with features such vertical quilting and articulated elbows and shoulders, making the most of Tokihito’s eye for functional design.
Representing Barbour’s own mainline range, this season’s Tokihito Yoshida collection also includes jackets with a military-design theme. The Field and Military Jackets are made from the famous 6oz Sylkoil waxed cotton, featuring over-layed, articulated sections, with hidden pockets and an ergonomically shaped silhouettes. The Field jacket features a detachable inner to allow the wearer maximum scope for movement and wear in all conditions. The Military digs deep into the Barbour design archive, incorporating sections of 8oz cotton at key movement areas into a design based on jackets such as the Cowen, with an ingenious arrangement of pockets and a detachable inner vest to allow the wearer total ‘control’ while wearing the jacket.
The AW10 Beacon Heritage Collection shows a real move on from what has already proved to be one of the most impressive and popular ranges of recent seasons. One not to be missed.
