Celebrating the notion that our bedrooms are our sanctuaries, places for rest and renewal, the Barbara Barry Dream Spring 2012 collection introduces four new bed ensembles, a new sheeting program as well as two layering pieces. The collection builds on Barbara Barry’s quiet and timeless style that transcends fashion with subtle texture, soft color and fine sewing details.
Much like a foundation of a clothing wardrobe that serves season after season, the Barbara Barry Dream collection presents classic bedding elements that empower the individual to create a personalized, harmonious style. At its essence, the collection is built on designs that are easy to live with, never about momentary fashion, but more about forever.
“With this new collection I’m offering versatile pieces that work as elements of a bedding wardrobe – pieces that layer one with another seamlessly allowing multiple combinations," said Barry. Barry's palette of pale hues, quietly elegant designs and subtle textures result in a feminine aura that has become her signature.
This season the designer introduces four new bedding designs, a new crisply tailored 500 TC PERFECT PLEAT percale sheet, additional colors in the GATEWAY QUILT and CLOUD NINE COVERLET, as well as new colors in the luscious PINTUCK SATEEN.
Sparkling with intricate points of light PAVÉ recalls the brilliance and finesse of pave diamonds. Clustered in delicate flowers and leaves, fine dots of raised cotton catch the light and shimmer. The PAVÉ duvet, shams and Euro shams are colored in classic tones of warm Alabaster or cool Mineral and pair perfectly with the new (500 TC) PINTUCK SATEEN sheet. A delicately embroidered EMBELLISHMENT pillow adds just the right touch of opulence.
Reminiscent of moonlight shimmering on water, DIVINE mesmerizes the eye with layers of dappled texture. Patterned cotton duvet, shams and Euro shams in Moonstone rest atop the PINTUCK Pima cotton sheet. The CLOUD NINE COVERLET in Quartz is the perfect layering piece and the embroidered decorative pillows GLIMMER and POLARIS dimension the bed. This heavenly combination creates an experience both calming and divine.
Lose yourself under the covers of FORBIDDEN CITY, a textured jacquard that evokes the broken light of ancient palaces in lost kingdoms. The over-scaled geometric duvet in crisp White perfectly pairs with the lustrous PINTUCK sheet. The GATEWAY QUILT in White sateen enhances the bed with quilted softness, while the PAVILLION decorative pillow adds the sparkle of discovered treasure.
Layered with rows of intricate stitched pleating the couture ensemble SIMPLICITY STITCH is a study in understated luxury. Rows of finely stitched pleats lay across the Crisp White duvet at the midsection as well as on the turn back. Layer in the PERFECT PLEAT sheet, the CLOUD NINE COVERLET and the charming FRENCH KNOTS decorative pillow to create a world of timeless white textures.
PAVÉ, DIVINE, FORBIDDEN CITY and SIMPLICITY STITCH will be available at Bloomingdale’s and select retailers nationwide February 2012.
