Specsavers welcomes Barbour into its growing brand portfolio with a collection of optical glasses from the iconic British heritage lifestyle brand.
With a fresh twist on classic shapes, the collection is inspired by Barbour’s modern countryside style and features colours and patterns inspired by the great British outdoors.
The Barbour story began in 1894 in the coastal town of South Shields in the North East of England when founder John Barbour began selling oilskins to the mariners and fishermen to protect them from the worst of the British weather. Today, Barbour is a 5th generation family-owned global lifestyle business providing outerwear, clothing, accessories and footwear for men, women and children and remains true to its founding values of quality, durability, attention to detail and fitness for purpose.
The new Barbour eyewear collection is inspired by the iconography of Barbour’s renowned wax jackets through the understated use of tartan and houndstooth prints and a variety of timeless eyewear shapes, including the clubmaster and round metals.
