ON THE LINE WITH BARBOUR’S TIMELESS ORIGINALS / SPONSORED

This month we have been really excited about the idea of Barbour’s menswear team designing the Women’s Autumn Winter ’16 collection. The collection is very suitably called ’Timeless Originals’, a fitting theme for the Barbour who have been making great British outerwear since 1894 thanks to Scottish founder John Barbour who started the brand in South Shields.
HAYAMA BEACH ‘N GOOD ‘OL NIGE

HAYAMA BEACH ‘N GOOD ‘OL NIGE

Our friend Nigel Cabourn’s favourite summer hang out in Japan is only a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Tokyo, where the echo of cicada calls in the city are swept away with the fresh sea air on the coast. We took a local train out to the volcanic sand covered beaches of Hayama to discover the colourful seaside culture that wonderfully describes the eclectic patchwork of Japanese summer culture. It’s full of bamboo, Hawaiian prints, kayaking, and banana juice spiked with Malibu.

A great fabric has the power to elevate design and give life to it, thanks to the way it was made, or perhaps the history it carries within its fibres. When we get dressed we should consider the appropriateness of a fabric to the occasion, climate, or perhaps the mood we might be in that day.

LADIES, YOUR DENIM HANDBOOK.

LADIES, YOUR DENIM HANDBOOK.

Buying denim, or buying a pair of jeans is a really big decision for a lot of us. It’s that pair that you hope will flatter you in all the right places, last for a good long while, and also a style that you won’t get sick of a few weeks in. Choosing denim is not only about fit, but it’s about colour, wash, stitching, pockets, crotch, weight, and don’t be embarrassed if you have no idea what this word ’selvedge’ even means, or why people are so obsessed with raw denim. Don’t worry, Ponytail got-cha-back.
