The 30 Best Fashion Collaborations of All Time

28. Barbour x To Ki To

Year It First Dropped: 2009

Designer Tokihito Yoshida cut his teeth working for companies like Blades of Savile Row before establishing his own brand, To Ki To, in 1997. Known for the technical detail that goes into his garments, he was a natural fit to reinterpret Barbour's waxed and waterproof jackets. Digging into Barbour's archive (which goes all the way back to 1908), Yoshida's initial collection included coats whose initial purposes ranged from horse riding to motorcycle racing, with features like detachable hoods and vests, storm skirts, and map pockets. There was even a trench coat you could button into itself to form a pair of water-resistant "culottes" at the bottom.
