Barbour is on a roll. Following an undoubtedly British collaboration with NOAH, the emblematic U.K. brand is joining forces with Japanese outerwear label and Wander for an outdoor-focused capsule collection that will awaken the explorer within you.

Taking a hike through rugged mountains and sandy lakes, the duo ready a slew of menswear staples that are primed for your next outdoor adventure. Delivered in a palette of earthy tones, and Wander reimagines its collaborator’s classic Bedale jacket with a durable waterproof construction, hand warmer pockets, a removable hood, and 3M hits.

A hooded parka is also introduced, which sports a ripstop shield for optimum heat retention in crisp conditions. Snap pockets and chest zippers make for a swift journey, also mirrored on the casual Pivot jacket that keeps its design sleek and simple for al fresco escapes.

Flannel shirts and cardigan-style fleeces act as ideal layering options, the former fashioned with a Tartan design and distinctive corduroy collar. The latter arrives with matching trousers, both boasting a textured design and contrast detailing. Co-branded touches adorn garments throughout, while further highlights include bucket hats, backpacks, shoulder bags, and a three-pocketed waist bag.

Speaking exclusively to Hypebeast, Barbour Head of Menswear, Ian Bergin said:

“and Wander has a very high standard of fabrics and materials, so everything in the collection is made with Polartec or Portex for branded performancewear, while also retaining a particular function. and Wander wanted to use Barbour and our heritage and meld it with their technology and Japanese aesthetic. They took select details from our classic motorcycle jackets, such as removable wind guards and pockets, and combined them with true Japanese attention to detail.

Today, we have a lot of modern brands taking outdoor gear that we know and love from back in the day, giving it a more tonal and wearable feel. Barbour’s designs are all about function and creating the perfect fit, and Wander wanted to marry that with their particular touch and have our garments upgraded for year-round performance.”

Take a closer look at the collection in the gallery above, and shop the collection on November 14 via Barbour’s website.
