Barbour, the heritage British clothing brand, has

collaborated with fashion designer Paul Smith on a limited edition capsule collection for Autumn Winter 2012.

The collection of twelve pieces for men and eight pieces for women draws inspiration from Barbour’s longstanding industrial roots and iconic outerwear styles and combines them with prints, details unique to Paul Smith.

"I have always been a fan of Barbour and this has been a great opportunity to collaborate on a collection that combines the British heritage and identities of both companies," said Smith.

Ian Bergin, Barbour's head of menswear, added: "With any collaboration that we do, it has to add interest and create something special for our brand. By bringing together Barbour and Paul Smith Jeans, two very British companies, we have created a collection that is unique and fun, yet still reflects the core values of the Barbour brand."

The Paul Smith Jeans & Barbour collection is available from September in selected Paul Smith and Barbour shops.
