The illustrious British brand Chester Barrie presented this seasons collection in the ever sophisticated basement of Smith & Wollensky. On arrival the venue was already crowded with familiar faces and unsurprisingly, an abundance of well dressed men representing Barrie’s fitting clientele.
Amongst live jazz setting the mood, guests gushed over the poised, polished and purely presented garments; nothing out of the ordinary for a Chester Barrie collection. Ready-to-wear pieces styled with jeans and corduroy fabrics takes a look in a more casual direction. However, it wouldn’t be applicable for a Barrie collection to be without admirably tailored evening wear suited for only a gentleman. Incorporating enchanting deep blues, quality fabrics and of course staying true to the brand, patterns making an appearance in the form of pocket squares.
In conversation with one of the evenings guests I was told “you don’t come to a Chester Barrie presentations not knowing the standard of what to expect as season after seasons the collections continue to impress”, summing up not only the collection but the evening as a whole… continuously impressive.
