This year Barbour offer us their British Waterways Collection, created with Artisan Craft Designer and Canal Boat Artist Julie Dodsworth. Inspired by the colours and traditions of our canals and rivers, the range features bright colours in a busy floral design - putting a unique twist on the floral trend of Spring 2014. Influenced by 18th century folk art Julie's designs adhere to the traditional rules of canal boat art which dictates that only specific flowers, roses, daisies to name a few, may be used. The range features Jackets, Knitwear and Tee Shirts embellished with the designs, and although Julie's work has previously featured on ceramics and homeware, Barbour is the first clothing line to feature her designs.

Embracing the Safari Heritage trend set to be big in summer '14, Barbour bring us their Photographic Safari Collection. Combining rugged functionality with classic, smart styling this collection is inspired by the intrepid explorers of yesteryear who travelled to much warmer climes and the photographers who followed them to bring us iconic images of far-off lands. Jackets and midlayers feature in this collection; natural, muted shades with smart styling, multi pocketed jackets and cotton and linen midlayers make this range practical, cool and comfortable.
