MARKET STORIES: Meet Barry

We met with Barry to talk about his grail, purchased at our market in July 2019.

What brings you to the market edition of De KLOFFIE Markt today?

Barry: On your Instagram feed I noticed one of the vendors who was fully dressed in Rick Owens and selling Rick Owens pieces during the last edition. I missed that edition. Luckily he was going to sell the next edition again. So I thought, well, that must be worth a visit. That’s the reason I went and indeed he had a lot of Rick Owens items.

What have you seen today that you really like or that you bought for example?

Barry: I bought a vest of Rick Owens, it’s a nice item to use for layering with my other clothes. So I’m really happy that I bought this item today. I also found a Raf Simons top, I think it’s from the nineties. I haven’t decided yet to buy it or not.

“I’m re-living my youth again, the nineties were a great era for me. Back then I couldn’t effort it. Now that I have the money for it, I’m going for it!’’

Why are you interested in slow fashion or second-hand pieces?

Barry: I am interested for a couple of reasons. One of the reasons is that I’m re-living my youth again. The nineties were a great era for me. Back then I couldn’t effort it. Now that I have the money for it, I’m going for it!

Do you think it is important to choose slow fashion over fast fashion?

Barry: If you like to dress nice and unique, I think it is. For me it’s also nice to hunt the pieces that I would like to have. And sometimes you can find grails.

Have you been here before?

Barry: I think it’s my second or third time. The first time that I was here, I scored a very cool Comme Des Garcons sweater. That’s why I’m here again.
