Tag Archives: Barrie Knitwear

Barrie knitwear is a Scottish cashmere brand making the Chanel cashmere pieces. The company was bought by the Wertheimer family, which owns Chanel, in 2012. This was honored by the Chanel Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art collection shown in December 2012 at Linlithgow castle in Scotland. A little similar to Maison Michel, the much hyped hat maker owned by Chanel, Chanel not only produces at the Barrie knitwear but also supports the ateliers own collections. This support resulted in a free standing Barrie knitwear collection, with its own campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld! The collection is sold at the Paris concept store Colette. I am highly curious what comes next from Barrie knitwear. I keep you informed in this section of the blog!

Chanel Salzburg collection – there is more than just bags …

Upon hearing Chanel the things that immediately start crossing one’s mind are bags, jackets, pearls, ballet flats, espadrilles. However, as a Chanel collection is strongly based on separates this is rather where it stops than where it begins! So let’s continue and have a look at knitwear, tops and bottoms from the Chanel Salzburg collection, which is going to hit stores next May!

Chanel spring 2015 – Spotlight on the knitwear

Yes its already some time ago that the “Boulevard Chanel” show with a feminist riot theme hit the Grand Palais in Paris (for all, who haven’t yet seen the show video its online here!). Thinking about the bags, the shoes, the accessories, jackets and even the makeup and nail polish there was really a lot going on on the runway. I can’t even remember one Chanel show that showed as many different styles as this one did! While Chanel previously used to be heavily focused on bags, jackets, pearl jewelry and to some extend shoes there was something within that show that suggested to me that the brand starts to broaden its spectrum …

Chanel grocery store runway – Let’s have a look at the knitwear!

Ever since Chanel purchased heritage Scottish cashmere mill Barrie back in December 2012 knitwear has more and more become a very integral part of every Chanel collection. When it comes to the pre-fall Paris-Dallas show my absolute favorite knitwear pieces were the huge blanket scarf that came in different colors and texture. For the Chanel grocery store runway Karl Lagerfeld opted for the complete opposite of those surely a little hard to wear pieces and showed some super easy to combine infinity scarfs. Again the scarfs were my absolute knitwear standout from the collection!

The Barrie crafted knitwear from the Chanel Dallas collection

Cowboys and Indians with lots of fringes already ruled spring’s Junya Watanabe and Valentino show. And many style savy celebrities including Kate Moss already showed that the trend can work far beyond festival grounds. However, its still hard not to look costumy! Some beautiful pieces to incorporate this tendency softly, come from the knitwear section of the Chanel Paris Dallas collection! Let’s take a closer look at them!

Chanel cruise Dubai – A closer look at the clothing

Yesterday Chanel cruise Dubai was presented. A little similar to Métiers d’Art Paris Dallas Karl Lagerfeld fused the spirit of Dubai with the Chanel heritage. As typical for a Chanel show there were so many different shapes, patterns, colors and decorative elements in the show that its really hard to name some favorites.

Pants ruled the Chanel cruise Dubai runway with shapes ranging from palazzo over straight and cigarette towards cuffed harem pants. A lot of white pants were present and gave the collection a little bit of Riviera spirit. One of the most adorable pants might have been a white slightly cropped straight pant with 3 little buttons and decorative, cobalt blue embroidery at the ankle. I guess the same pant style was also sent down the runway in black and cream with more simple buttons.
