The Barneys Post-Lockdown Peptalk

Apparently, come June 21st we'll all be allowed to play out again. Like many of you, we'll be cautious in running back to the pubs but it's going to feel amazing to reunite for a big Sunday roast with the family, isn't it? Even if it is in the garden! With many of us getting hyped for this 'at the earliest' date, the pressure is starting to mount. Everywhere you look, we're being reminded that we have to be 'ready' for...

Furlough Fashion: Life Beyond Loungewear

It's truly bizarre to think we've been in and out of quarantine since March 2020 (in the UK at least). We spent our evenings waiting for an announcement from Boris, whispers of something called a 'lockdown', swiftly followed by a rush to Boots for hand gel. And then, suddenly we're all 'at home whenever possible'. For many of us, that means taking over the kitchen table with a laptop and dressing our top half only for countless video call engagements. Others...

Breaking the fashion rules in 2021

For most of us, fad fashion and trends aren't high on our list of priorities. However, in the current climate, it's easy to look at fashion more cynically than ever.  But what if we told you to look at things a different way? In 2021, we're not focusing on magazine covers and social trends. We're focusing on self-expression and exploration. When the aisles of the supermarket at the only runway and your friends and family only see your top half on...

How to make your brand new leather biker jacket look ‘vintage’

So you've invested in a new leather jacket, but the problem is - it looks 'too new'. Don't worry, you're among friends here. We get it! We're not usually one to take short cuts but we do have a little advice for people who want their leather to look as if it's aged-gracefully rather than fresh from the rack. Of course, you can always upcycle old leather jacket. That's the beauty of this brilliant material. However, the chances of you...

The Ultimate Leather Gift Guide 2020

Forgive us for dropping the 'C' word so soon, but this year has been such a whirlwind that the festive season will soon be upon us without even realising. Have you started prepping for Christmas yet? It's been a weird year and we don't really know what Christmas 2020 will look like, but the small joy of exchanging gifts with family offers a sense of normality; even if we're celebrating via zoom or singing carols from the end of the drive! Since...

The secret to pulling off any outfit (Yes, ANY!)

If you’re looking for a hype man, you’ve come to the right place. We celebrate all styles, all sizes, all tastes and we want you to join in with the fun....

Video Guide: How to Measure A Leather Jacket

We know it's not rocket science, but getting the right fit for your leather jacket is extremely important. Not only for style reasons, but to ensure you're comfortable. No two leather jackets are the same. Each different skin, shape and style creates a totally unique silhouette. For that reason, we don't use one standard size chart for all products. When shopping with Barneys Originals, you'll notice that every product has its own individual size chart which is measured by our...
