CLAIRE BARROW AUTUMN/WINTER 2015-16 READY-TO-WEAR LONDON FASHION WEEK
Courageous women of flight (Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson) met mythical women of flight (sphinxes) and frustrated city workers to form Claire Barrow’s inspiration. A sky blue dress was screen-printed with a “to do” list, while a shearling aviator jacket featured spindly sphinxes in Barrow’s signature hand-drawn style.
Floor fans gave movement to feminine pieces like a short off-the-shoulder toffee silk dress with a painterly print, while a black sweater with white doodles and matching maxi skirt was a nod to her monochromatic signature. This collection was far more accomplished than in recent seasons.
