Dream of the Day – Claire Barrow Jacket

claire barrow jacket

I would do almost anything for this leather jacket! These beautifully hand painted leather jackets caught my eye in AW 2012 when Joseph stocked them. I have tried one on but alas the price tag makes these one of a kind beauties a bit of a fantasy for now. I love the designs that incorporate roses but when I saw this I just had to share the cat design with the world.

I knew Claire Barrow was doing the painting in a collaboration with Joseph and for a long time I just assumed she was a seasoned artist and illustrator. It turns out that she was a young fashion student when she painted her first leather jacket for fun. She took a year out of her course at Westminster to focus on this new found talent and it just took off. Her jackets are a favourite with fashionistas and celebrities, such as Rhianna and she has even painted an Hermes Birkin bag. Check out this very talented artist and designer at her website for more.
