Say hello to the new kid on the block, Barney Cools. The new brand of former Zanerobe designer Nat Taubman, Barney Cools is rugged streetwear inspired by contemporary surf and street style. We asked Nat to tell us a little bit about the new label - here's what he had to say.
Barney Cools explores the understated cool, crafting bold collectives of beach-streetwear inspired by my travels & antics. We love the coast. 'Salty nomads' people call us. We live our lives aqua-submerged. Simple that way. Design, surf, travel, festivals. Get boisterous at times. Don’t mind if we do.
'Poolside Etiquette' is our first Barney Cools collection. Poolside etiquette is a saying we throw around a lot – especially when the boys play up. If they cross the line, we pull them up. That’s etiquette.
The collection has all the good stuff... boardies and tees for summer, and shirts and pants when someone says you can’t wear boardies! Haha. Check it out. Have a good one.
