"Hello Kitty is a popular brand worldwide and we are delighted to be working with them to offer a collection featuring Hello Kitty wearing a Barbour Beadnell," said Sarah Lawrenson, head of womenswear and childrenswear. "The range is fun, easy to wear and the choice of colours and styles will appeal to every young lady who wants to look both contemporary and stylish."

Salvatore Zingrillo, marketing director EMEA at Sanrio, added: "Sanrio is thrilled to collaborate with Barbour, a brand that has defined the essence of a true British heritage, being able to become a major style authority for country lovers, fashion-forward shoppers and industry insiders alike.
