Covet: Tokhito Yoshida X Barbour Beacon 2012
Ask anyone, I’m a bonafied Barbour fiend. So my heart skipped a beat or two when I saw the new Barbour Beacon Spey Jacket for the 2012 Spring Summer Collection by Japaneses designer Tokhito Yoshida. I want one so bad I’ve got the shakes. Barbour, can you help a loyal brother out?
“Spring Summer 2012 sets the bar high once again, with outerwear creating the main body of the collection. Key pieces from the Autumn Winter range have been developed, none more so than the Spey Fishing Jacket. Constructed from Gore WINDSTOPPER Active Shell – a completely windproof, highly functional and breathable lightweight material – it is jam-packed with pockets, a signature of Yoshida’s unnerving passion for technical outwear that finds the balance between form and function with apparent ease. This can also be seen in the Mount Shirt, a brand new piece in the SS12 collection. Available in three materials; Waxed, Herringbone and WINDSTOPPER; the simplistic, ergonomically sound design makes it one of our favourite pieces from the range.”
