Prominent Designer A838 A Casino Original by Kenn Barr
“One distinctive shirt, one fabulous skirt can be the making of many costumes! That’s why I love to design separates”, American designer Kenn Barr declares. Distinctive and fabulous are just the words to describe this brilliant, young designer’s creations. Famed first for his “Sand-Barr” shop on New York’s exclusive Fire Islands, he set the fashion world on its ear with his original approach to separates. Patterns here are two hits from his collection for Casino. The blouse has that imaginative “couturier” look in the curve of the collar, the cut of the sleeve, the novelty of the bow in back. You might make it in jersey, cotton, crepe, even faille and team it with everything from a casual tweed skirt to your fanciest velvet slacks. A huge, buckled pocket distinguishes the whirling skirt. It’s easy as 1-2-3 to make in any fabric from faille to tweed.” (as stated in The Herald Journal, October 25, 1953
