The iconic British motorcycling heritage brand Barbour International have collaborated with New York-based lifestyle brand Saturdays NYC on a capsule collection for autumn/winter 2020, which combines motorcycling heritage with surf and city culture.
In August of 2009, Saturdays NYC opened on a quiet, cobblestoned street in SoHo, New York City. Since its establishment, Saturdays has grown from a small downtown shop into an international lifestyle brand synonymous with high-quality craftsmanship, a minimalist ethos, and classic style.
This season Barbour International are excited to be collaborating with the NYC life style brand, providing a collection infused with Barbour International’s motorcycling history and Saturdays NYC’s urban influence. Saturdays NYC adds a unique and contemporary streetwear edge to the collaboration.
The collection aims to fuse together the values of both brands with a range of archive-inspired wax and quilted outerwear styles, featured alongside paired back sweats and graphic print T-shirts, contemporary knitwear and practical accessories.
Together the brands have created pared-back alternatives of their rugged outerwear pieces that will fit right at home in New York City, as well as more graphic led pieces that refreshes the Barbour International identity.
Highlights of the collection includes the reworking of the iconic Barbour International A7 jacket, known as the biker jacket of choice for motorcyclists through the 1950s, 60s and 70s. The collaboration has retained the robust functionality of the jacket and combined with the design sensibilities of Saturdays NYC, with cord overlays on the pockets, a removable teddy fleece lining for added warmth, and a weather-resistant wax finish.
This sits alongside T-shirts and sweats featuring dual-branded logo graphics on the chest as well as two bags in the collection, a classic wax cotton backpack and a wax tote, as well as a bucket hat.
