Its not often you see a French fashion giant like Chanel acquire a historic premium cashmere manufacturer, but when this does occur you can be sure that something prestigious and beautifully crafted will come to surface.
Barrie, which once was the sole cashmere and knitwear supplier to many important fashion houses since 1905 including Chanel, is now also a luxury label. The knitwear collection is created by Chanel knitwear maven Odile Massuger and debuted in Paris with 20 pieces for Fall Winter 2014.
The launch came fueled with fashion ammunition and supported through campaign images photographed by Karl Lagerfeld himself and a stand alone store on the infamous Rue Saint Honoré. Its no surprise that these timeless and bold sweaters are already stocked at luxury retailers internationally. As cold weather slowly approaches, I will dream of cozying up in one of the landscape motif sweaters or striped ponchos with fringe.
