Supreme’s New Barbour Collab Is as Old-School as Supreme Gets

Supreme and Barbour are teaming up. For its spring-summer collection, the big-time skate brand has tapped the iconic British label for a range of jackets and accessories. Since 1894, the family-owned Barbour has made rugged outerwear for everyone from sailors and fishermen to preppy East Coast college students—a wide range, to be sure, but a world away from the hype-heavy realm of streetwear. The only thing that could make the Barbour’s gear more covetable is Supreme’s magic touch—and that is precisely what you’re getting with this collaboration.

Given that we’re not near each other right now, I had her text me the pieces she wasn’t feeling for her own personal style. I then responded with either “purge” or “put back.” While she didn’t necessarily need to replace the “no” items with another forward item, she was interested in hearing my thoughts on trends to consider down the road.

I thought you may be of interest to said items, so

The Best Vitamin C Routine for Brighter Skin

Skin concerns: Acne, loss of elasticity, dullness

Background: When I was a teenager, I suffered from acne that ended up clearing in my 20s. I always loved trying various skin products, so for years now, I’ve had a steady skin routine. A few months ago, adult acne really hit, and I began to suffer my teen skin woes all over again, with some post-acne scarring and discoloration. My typical routine for the morning consists of toner, moisturizer, eye cream, and SPF. In the evening, I double cleanse, follow up with a serum, oil, night cream, and eye cream. When I have an acne flare-up, I’ll use a spot treatment.

Review: This was honestly the perfect time for me to try out these Bliss products. After talking to my dermatologist, who told me that less is more, I decided to tone down all the products I was using and mainly focus
