BARTS « Urban Cool »
The BARTS brand, specialized in fashion accessories, prepares us for the fall with its « Urban Cool » collection. Influenced by street culture, the pieces of this collection have a minimalist design and are dressed in soft and varied colors.
The story of BARTS began on the beaches of Saint-Tropez, France, when Bart Koene started selling hand-sewn swim shorts in the summer of 1986. The success was immediate. The BARTS label then started making headwear after one of the girls who helped Bart Koene sell his swimsuits on the beach wrapped a piece of fabric around her head to hold her hair and protect her from the sun. People were eager to buy this cool and colorful bandana.
Officially founded in 1992, BARTS is based in Amsterdam and is now sold throughout Europe with more than 3000 outlets. The label offers comfortable, high quality summer and winter accessories for the whole family. From trendy hats and hand-knitted scarves to cool backpacks, each piece is unique. BARTS’ designers try to innovate with original design ideas and material combinations, always with an unconventional spirit.
Today’s collection celebrates city dwellers with products that are perfect for handling cold winters with style. It consists of headwear such as hats, woolen bucket hats and corduroy caps. We also find scarves, backpacks and waist bags. All in a variety of soft and elegant colors. Some pieces appear in two or three colors and others, notably the children’s line, are adorned with specific patterns. Each piece is adorned with a BARTS branding label.
The BARTS « Urban Cool » collection will soon be available in BARTS stores and on the Dutch label’s website barts.eu. Prices range from 20-25€ for the hats to 70€ for the backpack. In the meantime, you can check out the special summer products still available. Enjoy your visit !
