Iconic British brands, Barbour and Laura Ashley, have teamed up for a heritage-inspired collection.
South Shields-based Barbour has collaborated with fashion label Laura Ashley for the first time for the Autumn / Winter 2020 collection, which blends archive Laura Ashley patterns with traditional Barbour styles.
Two signature Laura Ashley patterns have been carefully selected for this season – Shepherd’s Purse, a design introduced in 1976 featuring distinctive heart-shaped seed pods that inspired the name and Indienne, an Indian textile pattern from the 17thcentury used by Laura Ashley since 1985. We take a look at the collection.
