Collaboration of the Week

Barbour and Tokito Yoshida

Most collaborations are flash in the pan affairs (and for good reason). Others stick beyond a few seasons, creating something that evolves from ‘snazzy anomaly’ into ‘partnership’. A prime example of the latter is Barbour's ongoing collaboration with Tokito Yoshida.

It's rare that collaborations go on for longer than the average celebrity marriage. But that's what's happened with Barbour's collection with Japanese designer Tokihito Yoshida. The collection has lasted so long that it's got its own name, the Beacon Heritage collection.

This collection builds on what the collab's been known for - namely great coats and knitwear, with a couple of shirts thrown in for good measure. Mixing Barbour's classic fabrics with Yoshida's subtle design updates, it's the sort of clothing that'll easily fit into any man's wardrobe. It's a large collection, so we've picked out our favourites from the collection.

The Medway shirt

Suitable as a lightweight jacket or a shirt, the medway shirt is something you'll be coming back to repeatedly in spring. An adaption of a CPO shirt, it's workwear but not as we know it.

The Sharp Jumper

The Sharp jumper lives up to its name. Eminently wearable, it'll work with anything from indigo jeans to wool trousers. The main difference between this and jumpers from Barbour's regular range is the slightly slimmer fit, which will avoid any 'you're wearing your dad's jumper' accusations that may fly your way.

 

The Mount Jacket

Not quite ready for full on camouflage? This jacket is the perfect halfway house. With cam lining and a plain body, it's ideal for anyone who isn't quite sure if they're ready to go full on Black Hawk Down.

The full collection, and a list of stockists, can be found here.
