Your week in chic: Erdem’s £3,495 Barbour jacket and the new Nepo baby (psst… it’s Phoebe Philo’s daughter)

There are hero pieces and then there are wax jackets interlaced with fabric from the actual curtains from Chatsworth House. When Erdem’s opera coat took its turn around the British Museum at his spring/summer show, there were audible gasps. Yes, the humble Barbour has gone hyper luxe. Erdem, longtime Chatsworth House superfan and visitor, took his cue from Deborah Cavendish, the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire. He explains: ‘I was given incredible access to Debo’s archive and collection of couture gowns, alongside photos of her in her gardens in her waxed cotton coat. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with Barbour, I knew I wanted to do something that merged those two worlds.’ The showpiece incorporated fabric fragments from Debo’s bedroom curtains; the on-sale version uses a reproduciton print. It’s all part of a new partnership between Erdem and the British outfitter, with more to come this year.
