Barbour x Margaret Howell
Barbour have released another collaboration with Margaret Howell. The new AW19 collection sees a range of sleek new takes on the classic barbour jackets we all know and love.
Margaret Howell: In Her Words
I think of myself as a hands-on designer. For me make is integral to my design philosophy. It is crucial how a piece of clothing feels when worn. I’ve always wanted clothes to be the way I drew them – relaxed and lived in, a natural look. I find men’s clothes interesting in their structure, feel and functionality. I started by designing men’s clothes, and then found that women wanted them.I’m inspired by the authenticity I can find in nature, people and places, and I think it is the same quality I look for in the materials I choose. For example, the feel of hand-woven Harris tweed and the irregular slub of Irish linen. I feel passionate about landscape, and its connection with such fabrics and the skilled people who weave them.
I enjoy pulling these threads of British tradition, quality and skill together in clothes that are meant to be worn in the real world, where good design is about living with thoughtful style.
About the collection with Barbour
“As an admirer of The Barbour and living with one myself for many years, I was thrilled to be asked to collaborate with the company. Delving into their archive was a real joy and very stimulating. It is great to be working with one of our heritage clothing manufacturers. For me it’s very satisfying to work on purposeful clothing that is well made and made to last.”
