LONDON — Paul Smith Jeans has teamed with Barbour, the British heritage outerwear label, to create a capsule collection of rugged designs for men and women. The line for fall 2012, called The Land and the Sea, takes its cues from Barbour’s 19th-century beginnings on England’s northeast coast, fashioning workwear for shipbuilding, mining and fishing.
Looks in the collection include the Seafarer, a men’s jacket in beeswax cotton lined with a striped Breton fabric, and the Fieldman Trad, a men’s jacket done in a patchwork of different waxed cotton materials. Women’s designs include the Beadnell, a jacket in polka-dot waxed cotton, and the International, a belted waxed cotton jacket with floral lining. The line also includes T-shirts, shirts, jeans and cord pants.
