Barbour Collaborates with Film Director, Sir Ridley Scott to create the ultimate Director’s Jacket

 For the first time, leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has collaborated with South Shields born legendary film director and producer, Sir Ridley Scott on a Director’s jacket for men and women. The women’s version of the Director’s Jacket was developed with Sir Ridley and his daughter Jordan Scott who is a filmmaker and photographer.

 The Director’s jacket has been especially designed by Barbour and Sir Ridley Scott to celebrate Barbour’s 125th anniversary in 2019. Designed with practicality in mind, it presents functional outerwear for time spent outdoors. Featuring detailed finishes requested by Sir Ridley himself, together with input from his son, Luke Scott, CEO of the Ridley Scott Creative Group, the Director’s Jacket has a military style collar and roll away hood. In true Barbour style, this jacket has hand warmer pockets with additional features such as offset pockets to hold keys and a signature script lower pocket to accommodate an A4 script. Key details on the jacket include anti-glare zips and studs designed to avoid attracting attention on film sets. An inner detachable quilt for extra warmth gives the option for the jacket to be worn across all seasons. The back label on all of the jackets features a bird illustration drawn personally by Sir Ridley and two of the studs on the jacket feature this unique bird design.


Paul Wilkinson, Global Marketing and Commercial Director, Barbour said “We are delighted to be working with Sir Ridley Scott on this unique project. Barbour and Sir Ridley are probably two of the most well-known names to come out of South Shields and in our 125th year, we are delighted that we have been able to collaborate together and to celebrate our shared birthplace. The Director’s Jacket combines the best of Barbour’s design expertise with our fit for purpose functionality and practicality into an innovative jacket that has all the features required by a world renowned film director. These jackets are unique – they can be worn on film sets or of course, for everyday wear by film aficionados who want a practical weather resistant jacket with just a touch of film magic.”


Sir Ridley Scott said “I’m delighted to have been invited by Barbour to help celebrate 125 years of this great British brand. The Director’s Jacket is truly spectacular. Specifically designed with Directors in mind.” The Director’s jacket for men and women will be available in selected stores worldwide from July 2019.
