Multidisciplinary artist Claire Barrow's latest collection Les Sports* Xtrémeweaves together a wide array of references to attempt to capture the mood of tension and division of the current moment of history - both politically and socially, but also deep within ourselves. In or Out, Left wing or Right wing, The Battle of Winterfell (between the Living and the Dead), the French Revolution,Mouvement Des Gilets Jaunes, graffiti on the Berlin wall, the nuclear war filmThreads, overcoming mental illness and building the belief that you are fighting for the greater good are all themes that are explored inLes Sports Xtréme.
*Barrow loosely uses the termSportsas way to express her ideas in a wearable, commercial way that casts a satirical eye at the current streetwear trend that brands so often try to align themselves with. She aims to create garments that are accessible to all genders and ages, which are comfortable to wear but also feel very individual and uniquely special.
