'36 '64 '18 你屬於哪個年代？Barbour International '18春夏系列/ Barbour International SS'18 &
Barbour International 一直都以文化傳承作為自身品牌服裝的核心價值；在這次的倫敦男裝週裡，Barbour 更將秀場劃分為三個不同的時空，分別為 1936、1964 和 2018，讓人在自己現正身處的時空混淆，卻又一貫的體會著這個品牌的經典之處。
時空的劃分從 1936 開始，這一年是 Barbour 正式冠上 International 名字的一年；Barbour International 在這一年因為參與了國際越野摩托車賽事 International Six Day Trial (ISDT) 而聲名大噪；而且Barbour 特有的油布外套從1936年開始，就一直受到英國隊的青睞直到1977年。

為了呈現出當年的壯闊場景， Barbour International 的2018春夏時裝展特別使用了 3D 投放技巧，讓82年前的時光再一次重現在現代的時光裡。
1964 則是 Barbour International 因為美國演員 Steve McQueen 在 ISDT上穿著經典款 A7 International Jacket 登場，而從此塑造了 Barbour International 在國際上的經典形象。
最後來到了2018年，為了製造出與會場主題 Barbour International Garage 違合的氣氛，今年的最新時裝將 “經典” 與 “運動” 結合，推出了多種混合搭配的風格。
“我們想要把Barbour International 從1936年以來的真實、風格以及文化傳達給每一個人，這就是我們慶祝品牌在現在依然非常成功，而且放眼未來的一種方式。在超過八十年的文化裡頭，Barbour Internaional 已經進化也成長到現在擁有自己的態度、個性以及懂的我們自己的消費者” -Paul Wilinson 全球行銷總監 (Barbour International)
從一八九四年由 John Barbour 成立以來，一直都堅守著品牌成立至今的信念，從油布外套開始到現在對未來走向的自信想法，這個從不屏棄為何成功，而且總是謙虛看待自己走過的路的 Barbour Internatinal ，勢必在未來的時裝產業仍然會屹立不搖。
