Having been a long time fan of the brand Barbour myself I was utterly excited when they kindly asked me to shoot their latest collection, a collaboration together with Pantone, in Paris. When I saw the pieces for the first time I immediately knew that we needed to take advantage of the fact the the whole city was in bloom. I can never not go crazy for some spring blossoms, right? Pinks, green, blue and purple – I was in colour heaven. Getting the opportunity to work on these kind of projects is one of the things I enjoy the most, it's always a pleasure getting to be creative as a part of your job. ...But I don't think I'll be able to let that pretty blue coat go. Or the pink one either for that matter...

Another neat part of this is that you now get the chance to win pieces from the Barbour x Pantone collection, and maybe even take home the grand prize of a stay at the Pantone hotel in Brussels. Enter the competition by uploading your own photo to their website and match it with one of the Pantone colours. Have fun and good luck!
