Anya Hindmarch to Design Collection for Barbour
UK accessories designer Anya Hindmarch, whose celebrity followers include Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller, Madonna, Claudia Schiffer and Reese Witherspoon, is designing a new collection of jackets for classic British outerwear company Barbour. "It was fascinating working in the archives, seeing the Barbour stories behind some of the coats from explorers, military men and heroines," Hindmarch tells Vogue UK. "We have respected the original design but played with the cut, fit and the details. It has been fun to add a little Anya Hindmarch style to such an iconic British brand." The capsule collection of four pieces will be available this autumn from the designer's standalone stores as well as selected Barbour retailers worldwide. Barbour, which was founded in 1894, holds Royal Warrants from HM Queen Elizabeth II, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and HRH The Prince of Wales.
