SS14 Men and Women's Countrywear from Barbour

This week we have been busy preparing to launch our SS14 lines and have been sharing a few sneak peeks with you on Facebook and Twitter.

Our first lines of Barbour items have arrived and are now available online at One of this year's key style trends is the safari heritage look - think of the landed gentry of the 1920s and 30s off to explore far-off lands. It's our favourite British heritage look in warm, natural colours with practical twists.

This summer Barbour offer men their Photographic Safari collection. Inspired by the daring photographers of the early days of foreign travel who photographed, and brought us our first glimpses of, overseas lands.
The items in this collection feature classic designs and cuts, in muted hues with on trend detailing and a cool, comfortable fit. From this collection is the Stanley Jacket, a smart/ casual summer jacket with three pockets and protective Sylkoil coating.

The women's British Waterways collection has drawn influence from the richness of Britain's canals and rivers. Working with Yorkshire based artisan craft designer Julie Dodsworth, the range embraces the heritage and colour of the British Waterways. A celebration of the quirky, brightly coloured canal boats, the changing seasonal colours and the play of light on water, this range is unique in design, exuding a very British charm.

Featuring a boldly printed inner lining, the Hope Beadnell is this year's update of the much loved Beadnell jacket.

London Collections and SS14 Style

The mac is back for AW13 and SS14 and with the glorious weather (for ducks) looking like it's settling in, it's time for us to grab a classic, versatile and ultra stylish trench coat and venture outdoors!

Barbour Addington

Take a peek at the gorgeous Barbour Addington Coat which embraces classic military style - another key look for 2014. Also, coming this spring we will be introducing new lines from Barbour, including the reversible Cedar Trench and the Barbet and Grasmoor Jackets.

For those amongst you organised enough to be thinking about your A/W14 wardrobe already, this week's London Collections: Men will have given you plenty to add to the wish list.

Modern military makes a comeback, promising a parade of smart, fitted coats next winter. Be sure to hold on to this season's heritage items as the theme continues with natural colours replacing the bright tartans of 2013. Natural fabrics and colours will be key, in herringbone and tweed designs and classic cuts. The look takes a turn towards the modern dandy; silk ties and handkerchiefs and brogues at the ready.

Unleash your inner explorer from summer onwards, in smart/ casual fitted suits and natural colours and fabrics evocative of the glamorous days of foreign travel and British colonists in foreign lands.

Key looks from London Collections AW14

For those dreaming of their perfect summer wardrobe, look again to muted, natural colours, tone down the check shirts of AW13 with lighter colours and get adventurous in camouflage prints, casual, collarless shirts and coats in lightweight, technical cotton with functional strap fastenings.

Inject colour with pastel and powder shades and expect to see these colours worked into functional and military designs.
