Responsible for crafting iconic wardrobe garments like the Harrington G9 jacket, Baracuta is reputable for its timeless approach to outerwear tailoring. For 2014 spring/summer, the British staple brings forth the know-how of classic designs in a contemporary light by incorporating modern and technical fabrics into production. Catered to the drizzly “British summer,” the collection dubbed the “Cosomopolis Series” blends water-resistant fabrics with famed Baracuta styling in trench coat, three-quarter length jacket, bomber and blazer profiles. Joining the rain-ready outfits is a capsule of sailing-inspired silhouettes. Employing color block styles, nautical flags and lacquered surfaces to avoid sea spray, sleeveless G9 renditions and hooded G5 jackets further the brand’s utilitarian motifs. Look out for the diverse range to hit Baracuta retailers towards the end of the year.
