Brompton has collaborated for a second time with heritage and global lifestyle brand Barbour, creating a new collection of jackets, t-shirts, bags and a special edition bike.
Will Butler-Adams, CEO at Brompton Bicycle, said: “The new collection combines the best of Brompton and Barbour drawing on a shared heritage in British manufacturing, design and making products with real purpose; the collaboration celebrates everyday journeys, on and off the Brompton folding bike.”
Designed with urban cycling enthusiasts in mind, the outerwear in the collection can be worn both on and off the bicycle. The styles have been crafted to include safety features for cyclists, such as reflective panels and bright colours. The range includes quilted and wax jacket options in sage for both men and women.
Ian Bergin, director of menswear and accessories, Barbour, added: “This collaboration is all about merging the themes of practicality, style and innovation. The jackets have been carefully designed to include technical features that ensure that the styles look just as good on the bike as they do when it’s time to dismount and hit the city on foot.”
