Barrus’ AW16 collection mirrors the location of Freemason’s Hall beautifully; with statement features, expansive textures, and intricate detailing. The effortless glamour of Barrus’ work is adamant as a mustard-yellow feather boa floats gracefully, bringing an iconic 1920’s accessory refreshingly into the coming season’s trend.
Faux fur continues to dazzle the catwalk for AW16, and Barrus has designed an ash-grey, cropped jacket for the pending months. Paired with an electric, shamrock green jumpsuit, the two colours clash wonderfully. The tailored leg screams chic, whilst the jacket creates a line for the waist to be accentuated along – giving that perfect feminine touch. This theme lustfully lingers in the form of a coffee-coloured, strapless, faux fur dress, pulled in at the waist with a marbled silk band. This piece has an exquisitely raw and fresh touch, heightened by the pared-back make-up and bare skin of the model.
Barrus truly explores the colour spectrum and fabric continuum in its latest collection; royal navy velvet flares match charmingly with a funnel-neck box crop, in the same exquisite marbled pattern. Just behind this, walks a look full of captivation: a leather snakeskin pattern co-ord – taking form as midi skirt and cropped V-neck – in shades of azure, cobalt and cerulean. The three shades of blue work seamlessly well together, and are complimented tremendously by the elegance of the nude ‘barely-there’ strapped heels. On the shoulders, sits an indigo blue, crushed velvet A-line trench coat, adding yet another shade to the palette, to complete the look.
Barrus’ AW16 collection is sophisticated, cultured and the epitome of everyday, modest chic.
