Barbour launches first ever collaboration collection with Ally Capellino
British heritage brand Barbour is launching a men’s and women’s capsule collaboration collection with Ally Capellino for the first time on 8 March 2022.
The collection includes a range of outerwear, bags and hats that draw inspiration from the Barbour archive while incorporating the pared back design cues of Ally Capellino.
Starting with basic Barbour shapes as the foundation, the Ally Capellino design team homed in on elements such as bellow and poacher’s pockets, stripped out linings and added coloured binding to seams to highlight construction. The story is rounded off with classic Ally Capellino leather buckle and strap detailing.
Alison Lloyd, Founder and Creative Director of Ally Capellino, said: “We really enjoyed working on this project with fellow Brit-brand Barbour. There is so much synergy in what we and they do, plus I love a good archive and Barbour’s is full of character and authenticity.”
Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear, Footwear and Accessories at Barbour, commented: “It was a pleasure to work alongside Ally Capellino on this exciting new collaboration. The range fuses together our expertise in heritage outerwear with the contemporary and minimalistic design work that is synonymous with Ally Capellino’s work. We hope our customers enjoy wearing these modern wardrobe classics.”
The range comprises six jackets - three for men and three for women - complimented by three unisex bags and hats, all in a classic palette of navy, royal blue and olive with contrasting flashes of coffee and khaki.
