Paul Smith and Barbour team up for autumn 2012 collection
British brands Barbour and Paul Smith have joined forces to develop a new menswear and womenswear collection.

Paul Smith and Barbour are set to team up for the release of a small autumn 2012 clothing collection.

According to Drapers, the "concept-based" range will comprise both menswear and womenswear. Products look set to include shirts, jackets, men's trousers, ladies t-shirts and more.

Further information about the collection will be released next month and shoppers will be able to get their hands on items in the range from September, when they will launch at Paul Smith stores and independent retailers across the world.

The collection was developed in an effort to unite the iconic British brands Paul Smith and Barbour, which have traditionally proved popular with fashion-conscious consumers.

Paul Smith opened his first tiny shop in Nottingham back in 1970 and, after learning the art of tailoring by taking evening classes, presented his first menswear collection in Paris six years later.

Meanwhile, Barbour was established in 1894 with the opening of the first J Barbour & Sons store in South Shields.
