In it’s spring-summer collection 2017, Barrie, the Scottish House specializing in high quality cashmere, has vividly unfurled the strands of its know-how, sublimating an alliance between skin-caressing luxury and flawless modernity.
Buoyed by the expert eye of Odile Massuger, this rich and creative collection revolves around themes that alternate between ultra feminine, retro chic, boyish, with an imprint of classicism or a dash of stylish sportswear.
In the purest tradition of Scottish cashmere, the House of Barrie, with its workshops located in Hawick in the Scottish Borders region and thanks to its two hundred “petites mains” or artisans, is working to drive the noblest of materials toward new horizons. All the while, having previously selected the most beautiful and resilient cashmere threads.
The contours of the silhouette highlighted by Barrie this season is poetic, playing with codes specific to Scotland: the thistle, symbol of the country, is dramatized in 3D shaped textured motifs, thanks to a cutting edge technology that is the secret of the House, but also on hand-painted porcelain buttons, while the tartan, the banner of Scottish clans, subtly slips into the irresistible timelessness of jacquard sweaters.
Alternating between a very fine cashmere that is like a second skin, and warmer models, this unique and desirable wardrobe combines with accuracy and modernity the desires for chic and comfort of today’s women, living along with them from evening to morning.
