Barbara Alan have a strong Modernist design aesthetic. They work with the latest advances in garment production, as well as using unconventional pattern cutting and construction to develop luxury and quality collections that are not only versatile but functional as well. They are in every way innovative but the unexpected – the unaccustomed fabrics, the lack of stitching, their shape-shifting transformational qualities only increase their beauty.

The British duo for their S/S 2015 collection present levels of juxtaposing lengths. Over sized, exaggerated templates compensate splits and crops in garments. Strength inlines and capacious geometric patterns are unarmed by thefluidity of rounded hems in light transparent fabrics, facilitating summer layering. The muted color palette, composed of various blacks, balanced with raw inky blues, pewter and concrete gray brings a natural tonality to the Spring Summer 2015 collection.
To describe their designs as wearable sculpture is to miss the point of their serious engagement with femininity.
