With its iconic waxed and waterproof jackets, [Barbour](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/brands/barbour) is a staple of the country wardrobe. This summer, however, the luxury fashion label is paying homage to its rich maritime history with a collection of clothes and accessories that are perfect for seafront style. Back in 1894, founder John Barbour supplied sailors, rivermen and fishermen with oilskins and clothing to protect them against the tumultuous North Sea weather. Paying tribute to this great history, Barbour has released the Driftwood collection for men and the Coastal collection for women, both of which feature casual t-shirts, relaxed shirts, versatile shorts and practical accessories, all imbued with a distinctive nautical spirit. The menswear collection Driftwood is relaxed, wearable and comfortable. T-shirts feature a retro drawing of ships and classic polo shirts come in pale blue with contrasting collar and cuffs, summing up the easy vibe of this range. Sunset orange swim shorts look as good walking along the sand as they do diving in the sea, pairing well with the t-shirts and patterned shirts that you can also find throughout the Driftwood offering.
