Contemporary twist on Barbour style quilted jacket - (unknown source)
Luella - current collection
Barbour - ad campaign
Yesterday i started re-watching British Style Genius, an inspiring programme that aired on the BBC in 2008. Consisting of (i think) about 7 episodes each encapsulating a different British clothing style. Whilst watching the episode entitled "Country Look" i found it extremely interesting how classic, well-respected, British brands such as Barbour and Aquascutum have quite easily translated into 21st century fashion trends. With other designers such as Luella Bartley taking great influence from British heritage brands such as these making classic brands and styles more appealing every season. This is something i definitely aim to explore throughout my collection this year.
