Barbara Casasola: clothes that don’t age

Barbara Casasola calls her spring / summer 2012 collection one for “mother and daughter”. The kind that doesn’t particularly age or go out of trend, but the kind that can be passed on to generations to come.

Minimalistic lines, clean cuts, simple silhouettes and virgin colours; if the haphazardness seen on next year’s spring 2012 shelves is causing you a migraine, then the secret lies in these treads. This age-proof range comprises of flowy maxis with visible zips, pleated summer jackets, straight ‘60s style sheaths and shoulder padded pieces, giving it an effortless modern aesthetic. The lookbook notes suggest the use of supreme fabrics such as silk, hand-washed crepe and georgettes.

Her bank account weeps every time she walks out of a shoe shop, but her shoe rack throws a 'welcome home' party for the new member. Her undying love for words is obvious when she narrates her entire life story to a stranger on the train. Which is partly the reason she's resorted to writing. When not blogging, she can be found in a corner of her nearest bookshop, hiding under a monstrous pile of international fashion magazines.
