As the crisp, autumn air wraps the world in a cool embrace, there emerges a unique amalgamation of craftsmanship and style, born from the collaboration between Barbour and C.P. Company. The iconic pairing launches its 2nd Drop for the Fall/Winter 2023 collection, a testament to tradition, innovation, and enduring quality.
Stepping into the realm where heritage meets contemporary allure, the ensemble of jackets intricately stitches together the legacy of Barbour’s timeless waxed cotton with the innovative essence of C.P. Company. The Creel Wax Jacket, a highlight of the collection, epitomizes this synergy, boasting Barbour’s 8oz waxed cotton and C.P.’s iconic watch lens and goggles.
Drawing inspiration from the intertwining histories of the Barbour Bedale wax jacket and C.P. Company’s Mille Jacket, the Creel Wax Jacket emerges as a harmonious blend of practicality and style. A vivid yet earthy color palette, born from the natural hues of Shetland and Manx Loaghtan breeds, is enriched by the introduction of a striking new orange colourway, breathing vibrant life into the collection.
Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear at Barbour, celebrates the amalgamation of “innovation, intelligent design, and form and function” echoing the sentiment of shared integrity and iconic design, whilst Paul Harvey, Designer at C.P. Company, extolls the “tremendous pleasure” of harmonizing the profound legacies of the two brands.
The 2nd Drop extends its allure with the introduction of the Barbour x C.P. Company TC Explorer Wax Jacket, a nod to C.P. Company’s classic Explorer Jacket. Crafted from Barbour’s classic 8oz cotton and adorned with C.P. Company’s classic watch lens and goggles, this outerwear style narrates a story of sophistication, presented in either a rich black or warm brown colourway.
Furthermore, 25 limited edition re-loved Barbour jackets embody a testament to sustainable fashion. Each unique piece, crafted in Barbour’s factory in South Shields, encapsulates a spirit of circularity and sustainable elegance. These exclusive items not only offer a distinguished style but also contribute to the noble cause of the World Land Trust charity.
As the leaves turn and the air chills, the Barbour x C.P. Company 2nd Drop for Fall/Winter 2023, available from October 19 on Barbour.com and cpcompany.com, stands as a sanctuary of warmth, style, and timeless elegance.
