Barbour and House of Hackney back for fourth collaboration for SS23
British heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has once again collaborated with East London luxury interior brand House of Hackney, with a new collection featuring three distinctive prints “encapsulating the style of both iconic British brands” for SS23.
Launching on the websites of both brands on 28 February 2023, the collection, which is a fourth collaboration since the first one in 2021, includes seven outerwear styles featuring the classic Barbour wax lightweight jackets and coats, with a signature House of Hackney print lining.
There’s also reversible quilts which can be worn with the print on the inside or out, soft long print dresses, and a shirt and trouser co-ord.
The three new House of Hackney prints adorning SS23 Barbour styles are ‘Hollyhocks’, especially created by American artist Kerry Simmons, ‘Limerence’, which “evokes the tropical climes and botanical vistas of Sri Lanka”, and ‘Equus’ - a fresh take on zebra stripes in a reimagined palette of chocolate and off-white.
Nicola Brown, Director of Womenswear at Barbour, said: “House of Hackney is inspired by the natural world with its bold striking colours and large scale prints that complement Barbour so well. The collection reflects the signature features of both brands by working big bold prints into Barbour’s iconic heritage shapes.”
Frieda Gormley, Co-Founder of House of Hackney, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Barbour on a fourth collection, bringing our modern approach to print and colour to Barbour’s heritage style. This collection sees some of our most popular prints adorn Barbour’s classic outwear and clothing cuts. ‘Hollyhocks’ is the perfect wardrobe addition in which to welcome in the new spring season, with ‘Limerence’ and ‘Equus’ creating equally timeless pieces.”
All three bold prints play a big part in the linings of Barbour’s lightweight waxed jackets and coats. The long ‘Petiver’ waxed coat features a hood and is available in two colours.
The lightweight ‘Balcome Wax Jacket’ features the ‘Hollyocks’ printed lining, and the longer length ‘Printed Handley Wax Jacket’ celebrates the season with the tropical ‘Limerence’ pattern in waxed cotton panels to the front and back.
