Secret Location partners with luxury cashmere brand Barrie to launch first-ever Canadian collaboration
VANCOUVER, B.C., November 28, 2018 – Canada’s preeminent concept store, Secret Location (1 Water Street), showcases a timeless limited-edition cashmere sweater as part of Scotland’s renowned House of Barrie Knitwear’s maiden Canadian collaboration.
Featuring an intricate intarsia design of British Columbia’s iconic mountains and trees in shades of pastel, the Vancouver Maple Leaf Pull Over unisex sweater is designed to be reminiscent of Vancouver’s coastal landscape. As a curator of the city’s most unique, interesting, and responsibly-made items, Carey Melnichuk, founder and creative director of Secret Location, worked with Barrie to provide inspiration for the design borrowing from Vancouver’s natural beauty and uniquely West Coast colour palette.
“It is an incredible honour for Secret Location to be the Canadian landing point of Barrie’s latest luxurious collaboration,” says Melnichuk, founder and creative director of Secret Location, “This partnership strikes a chord with our core values of embracing diverse styles while supporting quality craftsmanship and responsible production. Vancouver is the quintessential market to embrace such an effortless, yet noble product. We are excited for our clients to see the sweater in-person.”
Known for its premium cashmere, Barrie’s deeply defined reputation of utilizing yarn of incomparable quality and innovative machinery has garnered international recognition for long-lasting knitwear. Established in Scotland in 1903, the brand is celebrated for its traditional expertise, original designs, and playful colour combinations as a historic manufacturer of premium cashmere. Barrie also supplies the most prestigious fashion houses, including Chanel, which acquired the company in 2012.
The Vancouver Maple Leaf Pull Over sweater is available at Secret Location, Barrie’s exclusive retailer in the region, starting on Wednesday November 28, 2018. Each sweater is set to retail for $1,340 CDN and will be found in an assortment of unisex sizes: XS, S, M and L.
