Is there any better time to celebrate the best Britain has to offer than London Fashion Week? Contributing over £32 billion to the British economy each year, our creatives industries are our strongest asset, full of rich history and innovation. Combining all the best of classic British character, values and strength, we’re running down our top British brands on AllSole to get a little patriotic in time for LFW.
Celebrating their 125th birthday, Barbour is a pillar of British fashion. From its humble beginnings in a market in South Shields in 1894, the international powerhouse still has its HQ in the North East, proving it isn’t so grim up north with their classic, clean designs. With its roots in country wear, Barbour still harnesses all the wit, grit and glamour of British country life, creating beautifully practical pieces that look good in the city and work well in the field.
While you could pair their classic boots with waterproofs and garden tools, we prefer them with well-crafted jeans and a matching Barbour jacket. Epitomising no-fuss British chic, Barbour will take you seamlessly from a country walk to a gastro-pub.
