Barker at Pitti Uomo 86: S/S2015 = COLORS!
During my tour all of the stalls at Pitti Uomo was a quick pit stop at Barker to see what they were going to be getting up to for the upcoming seasons. It was a nice colorful surprise to see what they had one show, which was an array of shoes that not even I could have thought of. Not only were there loads of bi-colored shoes, but even more so, a good amount of tri-colored shoes. Interesting to see on offer for a British brand, but ever so appreciative in my eyes, as for me it shows progress. While the British shoe industry in historical terms has been thought of as quite conservative, offerings such as this just goes to show that in the modern day, they are branching out to be a bit more open with the times. And I think that it is great. There is no reason that a company cannot be classic and fun at the same time. So long as the boundaries of gaudy are reached, then no harm, no foul! And I love the brown/black spectator!! Well done Barker!
