Barbour x White Mountaineering F/W 2015

As far as collaborations go, it doesn’t get much better than Barbour and White Mountaineering. Barbour, the storied British clothier known for its rugged outerwear, is no stranger to partnerships (see Adidas, Norton & Sons, Sophnet, etc.), but in pairing with Tokyo’s White Mountaineering, there appears to be a return to the kind of chemistry not seen since Barbour’s relationship with Tokihito Yoshida of To Ki To. It’s not surprising. Designer Yosuke Aizawa of White Mountaineering has a contemporary, technical design sensibility, and like Yoshida, is interested in outdoor and heritage fashion. In dropping their sophomore capsule collection, the highlight of which are waxed, pocketed jackets, the two brands unite to pack one heck of a punch. Click the images for larger views.
