Baracuta jackets have launched a new colourway for the renowned British G9 Harrington exclusively at Manchester boutique Oi Polloi. The Baracuta team have worked solely with Oi Polloi to create the new and exclusive colourway: British Racing Green. Exclusive to the Manchester store until January 2013, the jacket will then be part of the Baracuta Ivory Label mainline for A/W 14. Baracuta and Oi Polloi have created a contemporary jacket bringing 2 famous heritage ideas together, also sourcing the colour green as that was famous colour used by the United Kingdom during international motor racing.
The new Oi Polloi exclusive represents the versatility of the Baracuta G9 jacket, which represents and epitomises British style. The Harrington has also been in high regard by every British youth movement for over the last 50 years. Not only is this jacket part of British heritage but also it has become a contemporary garment for today.
With Oi Polloi being a long-term stockist and supporter of the brand, it was a natural choice for Baracuta to collaborate with the men’s boutique. Steve Sanderson, owner of Oi Polloi spoke of the collaboration: “Racing Green is a traditional British sporting colourway before so bringing the two together seemed such a perfect pairing and we’re very excited that it is an Oi Polloi exclusive.”
Available exclusively from Oi Polloi online and in-store from December 16th 2013, £279 – www.oipolloi.com
