Stay on the Fringe!
“The best thing you can wear is your skin.”Self-awareness.Announces the woman who chooses her own style. I, Barbara Boner emanate this.A life experience which is a journey set between the two coasts of an ocean, a bridge between two continents, an island with a Channel, the world’s bellybutton, ice crystals laid out in the heat of the Mediterranean sun.A childhood spent in Washington, Boston, London, Verona and Toronto has increased my awareness, adding fringes of avant-gardism to wedges of classicism.
The charisma of a rock star on the opening night of the Opera, hippie culture in Buckingham Palace, a commedia dell’arte of Aida at the Verona Arena.I have arrived in a halfway land, a fun park where a playful spirit chases aristocratic strictness. In the same way that a master in fashion marketing makes fun of a degree in psychology.This is the essence which feeds my ideas for each bag.Soft leather as smooth as velvet, waves of polychrome fringes, disembarkation of emotions. Each a declaration of independence. A tribute to the circensian nomadism of a grandmother with northern blood was enchanted by a passion for fire and love, a tribute to the refined taste of my mother, an act of reverence to the scientific mind of my father.The circle closes itself on awareness.On the woman whose primary ornament is her skin.But no circle ever closes completely. It is, just like femininity, the perfect stroke of an infinite line.
