Barrie: Time-Tested, Lagerfeld-Approved



The U.K.-based knitwear specialist Barrie has been quietly producing sumptuous cashmere for fashion’s top houses since 1905. But only since its acquisition by Chanel’s métiers d’art arm two years ago (remember that runway romp in a Scottish castle? Barrie had a little something to do with that) has the manufacturer begun a gentle transition into a stand-alone niche brand.

This week in Paris, we were offered an early glimpse of what’s to come via a Karl Lagerfeld-lensed lookbook featuring Lily Collins. Odile Massuger, who oversees knits for Chanel, proposes five themes and twenty silhouettes for winter. Key pieces include a bleu-blanc-rouge “romantic” camouflage cardigan, a soft pink delft theme, and bucolic landscapes. Scarves and fingerless mittens round out the offer. Those gloves and more will be available at Colette come June.
