Vans x Barbour AW12 Capsule Collection
English heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour have joined forces with footwear giants Vans to create one of the most stylish capsule collections set to hit stores this autumn.
Making up part of Vans premium ‘California’ footwear line, this capsule collection sees three of Vans most popular styles – the Classic Slip-On, Classic Era Wingtip and Chukka Del Barco – given a seasonal overhaul.
Staying true to the ethos of both brands, this range of footwear manages to combine function and durability with style – traits which both labels have become renowned for within the industry. They have achieved this through combining Vans classic vulcanization process with Barbour’s signature waxing technique, with the end result being tough, durable footwear creations.
In terms of aesthetic, attention to detail isn’t neglected. Carefully considered, and seasonally appropriate, materials such as tartan, corduroy and leather accents are combined with a rich green military hue, which adds a refined aspect to the range and compliments the AW12 season perfectly.
The Barbour by Vans footwear collection is now readily available at select Vans California and Barbour stores worldwide – but be quick, as we can’t imagine this collection will be around for long!
