BARRIE – Fall-Winter 2020/21 Collection
This season Barrie conjugates the world of pop with English traditions, an elegantly modern
In this new collection, Barrie incorporates vibrant colours, giant flowers, double-breasted suits and
tartans that are skewed in together to create an optical illusion. Barrie also juggles with the aesthetic
codes of the 1970s and reinterprets them with originality thanks to the exceptional savoir-faire that
it’s known for. Partly inspired by music and festivals, the collection is permeated with pop references.
Bright red and pink intermingle on pieces with irregular stripes and kaleidoscopic landscapes in
deconstructed knits. Certain sweaters are embellished with checks and flowers in a tribute to the
Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, while others bear the messages of peace and love, in a retro
typography inspired by psychedelic novels.
The play on colours is coupled with an important work on the materials and the reliefs, as well as a
clever blend of cashmere, lambswool and silk thread fibres. Together these elements bring a delicate
luminosity to the pieces.
The Fall-Winter 2020/21 collection continues to develop themes that have been explored in previous
collections, such as “English college” and “sportswear”. It also introduces new unisex pieces: a fluid
pair of jogging pants and a jumper with a Milano stitch that exude the look of a luxury jersey ensemble
that both is both comfortable and elegant. Certain pullovers are emblazoned with a large B letter on
the chest in bouclé cashmere, in the spirit of student uniforms. What began as a line of cashmere
denim, which now includes boyfriend pants and new colours, the trompe-l’oeil range continues to
expand. Among the new pieces are a coat with a shearling effect and a pin-striped suit constructed
with absolute respect for tailoring.
This season, Barrie presents a new men’s capsule line. For the first time it includes a full outfit offer:
jackets and trousers in denim, but also sweaters and cardigans
