Press/Photos: Behind the Scenes from SS17 Shirt Department

In January, the Barbour team headed to the beautiful and picturesque setting of Crailing Hall, in Crailing on the Scottish Borders, to shoot our SS17 Shirt Department campaign. The day was spilt between two shoots, one of ourselves, and the other for our media partner, leading men’s lifestyle magazine, GQ.

We arrived early onto the set to ensure everything was ready for Sam’s arrival to the first location. It was straight to hair and makeup before we grabbed some breakfast, as we all prepped for the day’s shooting. The morning was spent with the GQ team in the nearby Kelsos, then soon after this, Sam was transferred to our location, ready for his latest Barbour shoot!

Our SS17 Shirt Department film focused on Sam’s best friend, his chocolate Labrador, who was following him around the house as he got ready (lead in mouth) hoping he would be taken for a walk… Sam finally gave in and they went for a walk by the river on the grounds of the hall. We shot in 4 different locations around the grounds; 3 around the interior of the house, and outside by the trickling river – which made for the perfect outdoor setting.

Due to the time of the year, we finished rather quickly, as we was losing light. Sam was tremendous throughout the day, ensuring we got all the stills and video footage that was needed. No shoot would be complete without a dog, and we were very lucky to have Tia on set – a beautiful chocolate Labrador who adored Sam, and can be seen in nearly all of our SS17 Shirt Department images. You can read Tia’s #BarbourDogs account of the shoot here.

In case you missed our last Shirt Department blog, we caught up with our Menswear Designer, Andy McMillan to take a closer look at the checks in this season’s SS17 Shirt Department Collection.

Press/Video: First Outlander Season 3 Trailer Reveals Claire and Jamie’s Painful Separation

As any Outlander fan will tell you, the love story of Claire and Jamie Fraser has always been a bit star-crossed. That’s what happens when you mix romance and time travel. But Season 3 promises the rockiest road yet for the Frasers as the couple are ripped apart for what looks like a long time.

Calling in from the set in Scotland late last year, Jamie actor Sam Heughan told Vanity Fair that being apart from Balfe for part (we won’t say how long) of Season 3 was like “having a death in the family. Well, I don’t know. I mean, it’s just like a different show. It’s hard to separate yourself from the character. It’s always hard when we’re apart, actually, because she’s a great person, great to come to work with, and a very good actress. But I think it all adds to the reunion—if there’s a reunion, or when there’s a reunion—well, you know there’s one in the books. It should be very special.” Caitriona Balfe jokingly responded, “Och! He’s already killed me in his mind. Gone. Too sad.”

According to the official Starz description:

In Season Three of Outlander, the story picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: when they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?

If Claire has to be separated from her beloved Jamie, at least she can console herself with the fabulous fahsion of the 1960s. (Listen! I’m just trying to find a silver lining here.) “Probably, to the disappointment of all the costume fans, I did not miss that corset or bum roll for one second,” Balfe says of her more modern Season 3 wardrobe. “Being able to do 40s, 50s, and 60s—especially the 60s—it was just such fun. [Costume designer] Terry [Dresbach] had in racks and racks of clothing. She made some pieces in-house and other pieces are vintage finds that she had. I love what each era tells you about the women of the time—it’s just such an interesting barometer. Some of the 60s pieces are so cool and beautiful that I asked her to make me doubles of some things.”

The third season of Outlander—which will include 13 episodes based upon Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series—will premiere in September. Fans eager to get an early taste can also catch the Outlander panel at San Diego Comic Con this summer.

Video/Press: Outlander star Sam Heughan recalls his acting roots

SAM HEUGHAN has recalled his days studying at Glasgow’s ‘Royal Conservatoire’ performing arts academy, describing it as a “terrific experience”.

The Outlander star, a BA Acting graduate from the Glasgow institution, has been recruited alongside former alumni as part of a drive to attract the nation’s next generation of performing artists.

In a 4 minute interview shared by the Royal Conservatoire via Youtube, the actor recalls his formative years and reveals the invaluable lessons learned and friendships forged while studying for his diploma.

The Royal Conservatoire’s campaign arrives hot on the heels of the announcement that the institution is now regarded as the world’s third best college for performing arts.

Past alumni of the Scottish academy include household names such as James McAvoy, David Tennant, Katie Leung and Alan Cumming.

And Sam Heughan has no doubts that the time he spent at the institution has led him to where he is today. The actor said: “I had a terrific experience at the Royal Conservatoire, being here on the stage is where it all began for me. My training gave me opportunities to work in Scotland, the UK and now in America where I spend a lot of time.

“The Royal Conservatoire knows and understands this industry, the teaching staff have great relationships and partnerships with national theatre companies, directors, agents and casting agents.”

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing for the 36-year-old; Sam’s first audition didn’t quite go to plan: “I auditioned for the Royal Conservatoire twice. My first audition was very bad – I had no idea what I was doing but it instilled in me that I had to come back the next year and try again.

“If you don’t get in on your first attempt, it’s a test of character. In this industry you need to learn to take on board productive criticism.

“I needed to work harder and come back better – so when I auditioned the second time, I was determined I was going to get in. The audition process is not as scary as you might think. It was a really rewarding experience and then when I was offered a place, it was sheer elation.

“Thanks to drama school I made a core group of friends so that no matter where I am in the world, there is always a contingent of Scottish actors and familiar faces.”

Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, said: “Scotland’s national conservatoire is one of the world’s top 10 performing arts institutions, ranked alongside great international establishments such as New York’s Juilliard and the Vienna Conservatoire.

“Students come from across the globe to access the high quality education on offer right here in Glasgow.

“We offer students a distinctive learning experience along with a strong belief in the transformative power of the performing arts, which allows us to be one of the most inclusive, diverse and collaborative institutions within Scotland as well as internationally.

“We welcome students from across Scotland, the UK, Europe and beyond to begin their learning journeys with us in September 2018.”
