Erin Barr, the women’s ready-to-wear collection, is a New York-based brand, with a fun and easy tomboy-meets-sexy aesthetic, and has been one of the top Editor’s “brands to watch” since its launch in 2012.
Her latest collection will fly high with fashionistas who dare to soar with looks you’ll definitely want to own next season. Erin’s keen fashion sense without all the fuss is what I’m always in admiration of(I was lucky to to attend her 2012 debut collection) with shapes and colors that screams modern chic.
“This season drew inspiration from the female pilots of WWII, known as the W.A.S.P.S (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I was very inspired by these women, for their strength and ability to overcome new hurdles in history, and the women really spoke to what the Erin Barr woman embodies: strength, tomboyish style, with a touch of femininity/sexiness. This season focused on new shapes (you will even see a bit more flare at the hemlines), while still keeping very strong lines and contrasting the hard/soft. Taking inspiration from these women, I designed a collection of easy separates w/ utilitarian details, throw-it-on-and-be-effortless dresses and onesies, and dresses with a very aerodynamic sensibility.”
