Over in Leeds, our friends at Hip have cordially invited you all along to a special preview evening on Thursday, 4 Aug. From 6pm until 9pm the store shall be showcasing the new Barbour x McQueen Collection.
It is 75 years since Barbour introduced their iconic 'International Jacket' and to celebrate the company is paying homage to Hollywood actor Steve McQueen. As a member of the USA International Six Day Trials Team, McQueen was in the party that travelled to London in 1964 and specifically chose the Barbour Jacket as the teams protective wear.
Besides the Jackets there will be other Barbour x McQueen clothing on show with pre-orders being taken on the night. Also on show is the Barbour x To-Ki-To collaboration which will be available to purchase in store.
Those attending the evening will be able to enter a competition to win a Barbour x McQueen Greenham Jacket.
