Barbour international debuts first collection with saturdays

by Stephen Garner

New for autumn/winter ‘20, Barbour International has teamed up with New York-based lifestyle brand Saturdays NYC for the first time on a new capsule collection merging the worlds of surf and city culture with motorcycling heritage.

The collection features a range of archive-inspired wax and quilted outerwear styles, paired back sweats and graphic print t-shirts, alongside contemporary knitwear and practical accessories.

“We are excited to be collaborating with Saturdays NYC for the first time on a collection infused with Barbour International’s motorcycling history and Saturdays NYC’s urban influence,” said Ian Bergin, director of menswear, footwear, and accessories at Barbour International. “Saturdays NYC adds a unique and contemporary streetwear edge to the collaboration and we can’t wait for customers to discover this innovative new range.”

“Barbour International is an iconic name in the worlds of both outerwear and motorcycling, so when they approached us to work together, we jumped at the chance to rework some of their most storied pieces,” added Colin Tunstall, co-founder and creative director of Saturdays NYC. “Together, we created pared-back alternatives of their rugged outerwear pieces that fit right at home in New York City, as well as more graphic led pieces that refresh the Barbour International identity. We’re thrilled at how the collection turned out, and we’re excited to share it with everyone.”
