Hot on the heels of the recent launch of an exclusive collaboration with London mini-chain Matches, London’s rising star Claire Barrow returns to new designer initiative Fashion East’s catwalk for the third and final time this season.
Expect her usual DIY punk aesthetic alongside new introductions such as denim, and even a sprinkling of magic, apparently.
What were your key inspirations for spring 14?
Magic and magical happenings.
What are the key items?
A Claire Barrow spin on classics such as biker jackets, T-shirts and denim items.
What are the key fabrics and details?
I’ve introduced denim this season to expand the Claire Barrow wardrobe. My signature leather and silk items are still there too. Also expect a lot of surface embellishment and illustration.
How has it been creating this collection?
It’s made me optimistic for the future.
