Barrie Cachemire Chéri

Hi,

wandering around Faubourg Saint Honoré, I discovered a beautiful, immaculate store with gorgeous cashmere pieces, I could not resist having a quick glance inside.
A charming young lady introduced me the history of the brand, founded in 1903 in Scotland, Barrie Knitwear is famously known for its excellence and savoir-faire. Provider of prestigious Fashion houses, including Chanel that acquired it in 2012, Barrie presented this year its second ready-to-wear collection.

Made from the most luxurious cashmere, the pieces are manufactured with a rare weaving technique using specific Japanese machines, 12 exactly, among the 15 existing in the world! The pieces are then washed in Scottish waters…

The prices are very high, the poncho is around 600€, yet the pieces are irresistible! Massive crush for the breton dress, that has a light Chanel touch!

En me baladant rue Faubourg Saint Honoré, j’ai découvert une petite boutique, immaculée, avec des cachemires magnifiques, impossible de ne pas rentrer jeter un coup d’œil.

Une charmante jeune femme m’a présenté l’histoire de la marque, créée en Ecosse en 1903, Barrie est connue mondialement pour son excellence et son savoir-faire. Fournisseur de maisons de mode prestigieuses, dont Chanel qui l’a racheté en 2012, Barrie en est à sa deuxième collection de Prêt-à-Porter cette année.

Composées du plus luxueux cachemire, les pièces sont fabriquées avec une technique de tissage assez pointue qui utilise des machines japonaises, 12 exactement, parmi les 15 qui existent dans le monde! Les pièces sont ensuite lavées dans des eaux écossaises…

Les prix sont très élevés, le poncho par exemple est autour de 600€, toutefois, je trouve les produits vraiment irrésistibles! Gros coup de coeur pour la robe marinière qui a une petite touche Chanel je trouve.Barrie_Knitwear Barrie_Small_Knitwear
