Mix of cashmere and colorful embroideries – Barrie FW17 collection
Barrie Autumn-Winter 2017 collection unfolds a stylish and resolutely modern locker room, supported by the creative impulse of Odile Massuger. Various themes articulate this winter collection, highlighted by the mischievous and mutineer American model, Charlotte Free.
The models are classical and elegant, embroidered and poetic, or even rushed by rough and asymmetrical cut-outs. The looks include robes, skirts, cardigans, pullovers, trousers, hoodies or in capes and kilts.
Tartan, inseparable from Scotland, dresses in winter clothes on a long cloak with a steep fall or on a wraparound cloak. The floral prints of Slavic inspiration in assertive colors play the spoilsports on sweatshirts or on a long cape evanescent. The “Landscape” print takes us this season to the foot of Mount Fuji on the island of Honshu, a poetic place. The embroidery, inspired by the tapestries of the end of the 18th century and affixed on short sleeves pullovers injects a touch of lyricism to the collection. The ultra-thin stripe patterns are made in an eighteen cashmere gauge, thus depositing an infinite caress on the skin.
The obsolete cuts of the small sweaters with three-quarter sleeves worn close to the body and associated with straight skirts printed evoke the elegance of the fifties. The port of a Grace Kelly is never far away. The asymmetrical cuts of the long dresses lead, for their part, an aerial approach in their wake. Accessories, scarves, bonnets and long gloves are all essential to face the winter frosts.
Like a red thread, the thistle motif, a symbol of Scotland, glistens in the collection, hand-painted porcelain buttons or printed in 3D with advanced technology on the sleeves Cardigans.
The Barrie Autumn-Winter 2017 collection, which alternated between classic and strong designs with surprising prints and cuts, once again succeeded in bringing cashmere on unexpected and highly desirable grounds.
