BARBOUR – ENGINEERED GARMENTS

For the first time, leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has collaborated with New York based Engineered Garments to create a small capsule collection for Autumn Winter 18 that is both distinctive and familiar. Founded in 1999 by Japanese designer, Daiki Suzuki, Engineered Garments takes its name from a pattern maker’s comment that these clothes are more engineered than designed. Taking cues from Suzuki’s experience and admiration with American sportswear, workwear and highly function military clothing, each piece from the Barbour x Engineered Garments collection has a simple aesthetic with a high level of sophisticated attention to detail. Only waxed cotton is used in this collection in black, navy and olive with black and navy linings and intricate detailing to pocket shapes. There is an engineered take on design with rear opening parkas, capes and looser silhouette classic Bedales and blouson shapes.
