Claire Barrow launches capsule collection

Teamed up with matchesfashion.com

Claire Barrow, creator of the hand-painted leather jackets that Team ELLE have been coveting since we first saw them and one third of the current Fashion East line-up, has a new project. She’s teamed up with matchesfashion.com to design a capsule collection of leather jackets and bags, all emblazoned with her signature colourful illustrations.

Last night she left her studio and fashion week preparations to grace the launch party and tell us about the pieces. ‘It’s completely different collection to a/w 2013, based on different research and a different angle,’ she told us. ‘Because they’re limited edition and one offs I wanted to make it feel as though you’re buying into it to be a part of something. It’s about being a part of a group, being one of the girls’. There are three different jackets and three clutches to choose from. The idea? Pick your favourite and join a gang of like-minded girls who chose the same.

Claire is keeping details of her s/s 2014 collection under wraps but she told us, ‘It’s all coming together now, it’s really exciting. I think this collection’s going to be really good and people are going to like it.’

We can’t wait to see it. But, in the meantime, the capsule collection has hit stores today and we’re trying to choose which gang we want to be in...
