Erin Barr was one of my favorite collections last season, so I was super excited to be invited back to not only to cover her show but was invited backstage to interview the talented designer and see the clothes up close...even though since my job gets in the way of all things fun I went backstage after the show missing all the pre-show excitement -- especially since this was Barr's first runway show. This season's collection felt like an extension of her Spring 2013 collection, not that it's a bad thing. She knows her woman and who she's designing for-- the confident sexy woman. She has a bit of a modern edge with a little bit of a throwback to the 50s madmen era. The collection itself was inspired by her time spent at her family's cabin in Northern Wisconsin. She used it's natural landscapes to help her create the Fall 2013 collection.
I love the seductiveness and confidence that her collection has. Full of sexy slits, cropped tops, cut outs, and leather tops. Maybe to much skin for a fall collection? That's why we have wool coats! Nature's colors can be seen through out: greens, nudes, and blacks. And if you know anything about me you know that I love my mint. I was also happy to see that Moscot paired up again with Barr to provide sunglasses for the show. The glasses really help pull the whole collection together to give it the feel that it needs.
