Colour, style and comfort in Barrie’s SS19 collection


 Colour, style and comfort –  this is how Barrie presents its new Spring-Summer 2019 collection. After a new artistic director Augustin Dol-Maillot had taken over Barrie to his hands, new chapter began in it’s history. This time the biggest focus is dedicated to the purest tradition of Scottish cashmere. 

“For this Spring-Summer 2019 collection, the idea was to refocus the brand on itself, in order to highlight all of the codes that shape the Barrie universe: the signature-logo, the 3D stitches and of course the infinite palette of colours.” –  says Augustin Dol-Maillot.

  The look is absolutely feminine, sophisticated and relaxed: a palette of tangy pastels, thanks to its triple-thread chiné, and cuts that are fitted and understated. Wide-cut trousers, long dresses, oversize gilets, openwork lace bodies are made for any moment in life, it can be a a day or night, home or holiday.
Also,  this season  cashmere is mostly combined with other materials, such as cotton and silk.

 Barrie stays loyal and plays with the 3D knitting techniques: the brand’s signature – famous thistle stitch; highlights the neckline of a deep V. Second technical  element is the waffle stitch, in a beige tone-on-tone or in more contrasting colours, reproduced with a tweed effect, as a short jacket or small sweater. Third one, the bouclette stitch, imitating a terry cotton and openwork lace mesh logo, appears on dresses, hoodies and tank tops.

Cashmere pyjamas with vertical stripes and vintage hues create great optical illusion. The striped sailor tops sketch out a sunset on a graphic horizon: a link to Barrie’s famous “landscape sweater”.

At the end, we can see cashmere denim theme. Here are three colours of its: raw, white and faded blue. A fitted jacket, summer shorts, jeans with a timeless cut are worn with two-tone sweaters and gilets.
As the last ascent of this collection, designer chose cashmere sunhat which is very symbolic and marks a beginning of new Barrie’s silhouette.
