Claire Barrow: Les Sports Xtréme

We’re excited to showcase Claire Barrow’s mini-collection Les Sports Xtréme on Editorial today. With her new collection, the London designer invites us to dig a hole and “throw the soul” behind some bushes. Xtréme Sports explores the theme of battles, political and personal. Daniel Swan’s 40 second musical film incapsulates a nuclear hellscape, featuring ladies of the French Revolution and stolen lines from Les Miserables. It’s in this battlefield of trash barricades, teddy bears, Knights and mermaids that we discover Claire Barrow’s fine jewelry pieces and unique garments. Xtréme Sports is now available through the designer’s webstoreClaire Barrow will also be stocking some of her new collection at Editorial Magazine’s NYC Pop Up Shop this weekend at 182 C Avenue, NY May 11 &12th.
