Collab x

I got all excited when I saw that Alexa Chung had done a Collab with Barbour, classic mixed with classic quirk had me intrigued.

The pieces, though simple stand alone. But I was gutted with the styling – the Barbour website looks like something a generic garden centre would put together; where’s the mist on the rolling hills, dew caught on blackberry bushes, the wooden farmer’s gate just open, the pheasants, the rust of autumn leaves? Where’s the aspiration, the fantasy? I’m fully aware it is a fantasy – but sometimes it’s good to dream…

      We have so many layers, normcore being one of them – and I totally get that the strangest things can be suddenly imbued with zeitgeist, but I don’t think it’s something people can assume happens – The Barbour website being a casing point. I also feel this to a certain extent with Alexa – I love her style when she’s in her own bubble, throwing something on. Where I struggle is when that action is reproduced for the masses; life is a paradox! xxx
