Baracuta has launched its first capsule collection in partnership with Byborre, a textile innovation studio based in Amsterdam. Byborre works at the borders of material development and aesthetics, with its team specialized in knitted textiles.

The spring/summer 2021 collection features three styles in a limited number of 100 pieces of jackets, made of recycled materials with ultralight technology. A new reinterpretation of Baracuta’s signature Harrington Jacket G9, as well as the looser fit G4, and a Reversible Vest are included in the line.

The main feature of the garments is a bespoke, premium 100 percent recycled polyester material, executed in Byborre’s signature AO2 knit structure and Baracuta’s iconic tartan motif. The yarn composition was made using Sinterama’s Newlife yarns, a fit-for-purpose textile that builds on sustainable synthetic material innovation.

In fact, each of the garments holds two fundamental elements: the supply of certified Italian recycled material and the Italian industrial tradition. Production comes from the historic Biella area, and the result is a fully traceable collection that’s 100 percent Made in Italy.

The Byborre x Baracuta collection is available now in select stores and on
