Barque Presents Classics Spruced Up for Sunny Climes

Thursday Jun 28, 2012

NEW YORK, NY - Welcome to Barque Spring/Summer 2012. Barque, a New York-based brand, recently announced their spring collection of classic pieces spruced up for sunnier climes as well as the launch of its first e-commerce boutique on its newly revamped website

The New York based fashion house is known for its handsomely made and quirky collections, which will be available for purchase online for the first time on June 28th 2012.

The e-commerce boutique will boast the current Spring/Summer 2012 collection, which encompasses a vibrant mix of eccentric accents and casual luxe. Deconstructed blazers, statement Baracuta jackets, an array of airy shirting along with luxurious knits, tees and shorts are imbued with nautical influences, floral accents and impeccable tailoring.

Alongside the online store, the overhauled website also offers access to news, press and all social media outlets giving users a comprehensive encounter with the brand.

In addition, the e-commerce boutique will offer an introductory 40% off discount to coincide with the launch from 06/28 - 07/05 in perfect time for replenishing those summer wardrobes.

Nautical influences are combined with floral accents. Blazers and vests are crafted from daisy-printed artisanal fabrics along with sailor check, mottled seersucker, and anchor-embroidered Japanese cotton, all carefully constructed to give a laid back look and fit. Statement Baracuta-style jackets channel the 60s in fine-striped khaki and navy.

Inspired by the principles of nature - from botany to flora - and the way a garment organically moves with the body, the line utilizes a name that transpires from ’bark’, which is nature’s very own staple outerwear. In short, the BARQUE Spring 2012 collection embodies the virtues of the season in full bloom.

Contrasting components create an opulent devil-may-care complexity as laidback nonchalance meets refined luxury. The subtle feminine details exude a confident sense of splendour while the looser cuts and rugged textures imbue a masculine nonchalance.

Shirts in polka dot, mini houndstooth, buffalo check, and ombre check in a palette of blues, butter creams and chambray have a light and worn softness in contrast with the vintage cut and texture of the subtle pin stripe jeans.

Cashmere soft henleys, Breton stripe tees, and polished polos with striking hounds tooth collars complement the array of tailored and impeccably fitted classic shorts in floral print, stripes and denim. Knits are light and summery in 100% cotton. Cardigans are given character with contrasting front rib, cuff and elbow patches while henleys and sweatshirts remain classic with smart, single pocket features.

Sparked by spring, influenced by the elements and maintaining a mission of making new of the old, the Barque Spring/Summer 2012 line strikes the perfect sartorial balance between raw simplicity and ornate luxury.

Barque’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is a vibrant mix of eccentric accents and casual luxe. These are clothes made contemporary without becoming victim to fads.
