Alice Temperley is to create a collection for Barbour.

The designer will team up with the British outerwear label to work on a range, which will be available next year, and Alice says she can't wait to start on it.

She said: "Barbour, one of my favourite British brands, is the perfect fit for Temperley. As we plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2011, this collaboration comes at a significant time for our brand and offers our customers even more to choose from than ever before."

Speaking about the collection, called Barbour Gold Label by Temperley, Barbour managing director Steve Buck told Drapers magazine: "Our popularity as a fashion lifestyle brand has grown rapidly and launching a premium womenswear collection, Barbour Gold Label, is the next natural step in satisfying this demand. Gold Label is new, directional and fresh and we wanted to work with a British designer who could capture this feeling yet still remain true to Barbour's heritage."

The collection will merge classic Barbour styles and fabrics with Temperley's timeless glamour.
