Sitting on Endell Street in the heart of London was Barbour x White Mountaineering's highly anticipated presentation for AW2015. The luxury English fashion brand teams with the functional Japanese outdoor clothing brand, White Mountaineering to create a collaborative collection of heritage, style infused with utilitarian technology.

The presentation was filled with fashionable guests (and it was rather nice to bump into a few of my friends from last season), who were greeted with delicious champagne at the door and the sound of cameras clicking and chatter filling the air. The guests, all crowded around the models, who stood speaking to each other. Often the boys were distracted by the sneaky sounds of cameras clicking 'click!' and flash before them.

The collection primarily showcased three colour stories of navy, olive and brown, all established Barbour favourites. The wax cotton jackets were combined with a subtle and sophisticated use of tweed in collars, hoods, shoulder and elbow patches. At the core of Barbour's design DNA are cord and cotton, which were used in trousers to complete the look of heritage and tradition of the brand.

With a Japanese influence on the collection, features of dark olive and navy were combined with black and white highlights. The exclusive print was used throughout the collection on jackets, shirts and trousers. The collaborative collection between Barbour and White Mountaineering perfectly combines the luxe heritage of Barbour and the intricate and detailed work in White Mountaineering's aesthetic.

Designer of White Mountaineering concluded "I grew up with an understanding of Barbour and from our first collection together, I believe I have created collections which incorporate both White Mountaineering's design and Barbour's original functionality."
