Paul Smith Joins Barbour
Finally it’s getting cooler, so it’s high time for us to start pretending it actually gets chilly over here and dream of needing a winter wardrobe. I mean we don’t want to be cold or anything, obviously, but when we heard that fashion legend Paul Smith had joined forces with hot celeb label Barbour (Alexa Chung loves their classic waxed jackets) we rediscovered our inner country girl. UK daily The Telegraph reports, “The women’s collection offers a playful take on two of Barbour’s best loved styles – the International and the Beadnell. Both have multi-coloured linings and the latter has been given a subtle polka dot wax finish and a splash of colour in the form of red velvet, which lines the underside of the collar.” Oh yes, we’re definitely going to need one of each, despite a distinct lack of skinny pins like Alexa’s. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the Paul Smith store in The Dubai Mall and the minute we lay our eyes on the range, we’ll let you know. After we’ve bagged ours, obvs.
