Barbour And Brompton Are Back For Their Second Collaboration
This time the two brands have an even more exciting lineup
Barbour is a leading heritage and global lifestyle brand and they are collaborating once again with renowned UK bike manufacturer, Brompton Bicycle. Yes, the very same Brompton behind the iconic folding bicycle. This time around, the two brands are creating a collection of jackets, t-shirts, bags and even a special edition bicycle.
Barbour is synonymous with their wax jackets while Brompton is well known for their folding bicycles. Both brands are hailed across the globe for their quintessentially British design cues and long lasting products. This provides the basis for this new collaboration between the two brands.
The outerwear in this collaboration was made specifically for cycling enthusiasts. It features reflective panels that are made from bright colours. Some of the outerwear in this collection include quilted and wax jackets as well as t-shirts made with fashion artist and illustrator Fei Wang, also known as Slowboy.
This collaboration will also see a special edition bike from the two brands called the Barbour X Brompton C Line Explore. Built for adventure, it comes with a 6-gear setup to ensure maximum comfort and safety whether its in the city or beyond.
The bike features an all-weather C17 Brooks saddle and Schwalbe Almotion touring tyres and is finished in a custom Amble Sands paint. Also, Barbour bags fit perfectly on this bike which was inspired by a beautiful stretch of shoreline in the North east of England.
The collaborative collection also features a few stylish bags that are perfect for a weekend trip or just travelling in the city. Some of the bags in this collection are the Barbour X Brompton Wax Holdall, a 24- litre bag made to be durable and practical.
Other bags include the Wax City Bag, which takes Barbour’s iconic 10oz wax cotton fabric and gives it a new refreshing look. It also includes the Barbour X Brompton Zip Pouch, which is the perfect lightweight and compact bag to carry essentials and look amazing while doing it.
