Clicking fingers at the ready, there’s a Claire Barrow pop-up on its way full of limited edition pieces hand-created by the designer herself.
Thankfully payday’s only just passed and we haven’t blown our wage slips on unnecessary Ubers and midweek deadline breakdown Mcdonalds’ just yet. This month we’ll be making investments as Claire Barrow relaunches her website with an exclusive pop-up store of limited edition pre-collection designs.
Sign up on Claire Barrow’s website to receive an access code to the pop-up online store, opening this Friday 7th August. Big spenders can look forward to lambskin leather swing coats for £1500 as well as ruffle tops and silk scarves. If you’re broke with expensive taste, you can satiate all your fashion needs with a leather phone case, tote bag or painted patch, you can still purchase a piece from the ever considerate designer without needing to take out a loan.
This ‘gift shop’ approach stems from Claire’s inspiration for the collection, thinking about her hand-painted items and e-commerce, she deduced that her store was like being in the gift shop of a museum, with art you can take away to wear. We can look forward to prints inspired by promiscuous and sensual women she imagined to be on exhibition in her dream museum. Think Eve, Cleopatra and French dance-hall girls, hopefully all in Claire’s signature sketchy style we saw last season.
