Erin Barr: Think Marilyn Monroe

Erin Barr’s inspiration for her Spring 2013 presentation focused, not so much on a dream, but a dream team. To be more specific, it focused on a fictitious meeting between on-screen goddess Marlin Monroe and world-renowned artist Frank Stella.

With a 50s inspired Mad Men-like aesthetic, this collection was a vintage collectors playground. The pieces, like Monroe’s epic style, were designed to give women a more womanly silhouette.

Erin Barr’s collection popped with cut-out crimson maxis, edgy leather blouses, and sheer detailed dresses. Erin Barr even designed a chic grayscale gown made of jersey T-shirt fabric! How cool is that?

Erin Barr’s Collection, with its wearable charm, retro vibes and all around Monroe-like aesthetic, was the perfect end to my day of shows.

Trends-

Pencil skirts, art deco design, trench coats, sheer detailing and bright pants.

Colors-

Crimsons, bold whites, deep blacks, and heather grays.

Who Should Wear-

From the full cast of Madmen ladies to the typical women on the street,  there is a little something for every lady in this wide-ranging collection.
