Alice Temperley to launch high-end Barbour collection
It seems the old Barbour jacket just keeps getting more stylish. Following on from Anya Hindmarch's collaboration with the heritage brand, Alice Temperley has just announced she will also create a new higher-end range.
Barbour Gold Label will be unveiled in time for next Autumn, making it the second designer womenswear collection for the label. "Our popularity as a fashion lifestyle brand has grown rapidly, and launching a premium women's wear collection is the next natural step in satisfying this demand," said Steve Buck, Barbour's managing director.
Temperley added: "Launching a premium... line with Barbour, one of my favorite British brands, is the perfect fit for Temperley. As we plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2011, this collaboration comes at a significant time for our brand and offers our customers even more to choose from than ever before."
