Classic Scenography to Create a 125 Year Barbour Legacy at LFWM

Heritage is one thing, and legacy is another… when they combine, it creates history.

Barbour created history with 125 years of a celebration at the iconic Lancastar House London (which required a passport for entry). The British brand had human sized books and flyers alongside a specially documented video that ran on loop to showcase the rich history and launched an ‘icons re-engineered’ collection, essentially giving its classic styles and cuts a slight upgrade. Quite a contrast to my DKNY floral oversized shirt and skinny jeans attire, which however made for apt posing in splendid ambiance. Set against the swooping chandeliers, spiraling red carpeted stairways, high ceiling gilded walls and resplendent ambiance, the scenography matched the legacy that the brand was trying to relay.

The styles themselves included archival jackets including a leather moto jacket, a wax cotton jacket, both of which were in classic dark country hues. The brand was known for it’s derby style country wear collection with parkas aplenty, in contrast to it’s modern fitted sports jackets, all of which were black or charcoal grey in color and paired with earthy toned pants. Al in all, a collection that was quintessentially British, and undeniably timeless.
