It’s officially time to start looking for the best winter coats. It may only be autumn – but we all know the best styles sell out fast, and that the great British weather is always unpredictable!
This is why we couldn’t contain our excitement when Barbour showed us its brand new collection. The British heritage and lifestyle brand is known for its iconic wax jackets, now there’s a new style to get your hands on and it’s fresh from the new collaboration with ceramic designer Emma Bridgewater.
If you’ve found a new love for walking since lockdown then this Barbour coat jacket is made for you. Perfect for those autumn strolls, the wax jacket in navy features a printed lining of fallen leaves in rich autumnal hues of orange, brown and green. It also has giant front pockets so you can keep your hands cosy, or just use them for walking snacks.
If you prefer Barbour’s quilted classic then this is a go to Barbour coat. The khaki shade is guaranteed to go with everything in your wardrobe and it also features the exclusive ‘dog walking’ print by Emma Bridgewater – roll back the cuffs to show it off.
Emma says, “The Barbour items feature a print inspired by autumnal walks in the countryside, one of my favourite activities. Within the design there is a Labrador, that’s because as a family that is our favourite breed of dog. I have always loved and trusted Barbour coats, no brand comes close for function and style, and I enjoy wearing my trusty jacket during my daily walk.”
