DRi Licensing is delighted to announce the signing of stunning new design brand, ‘BARBARIAN’.
Created by the young American designer, Barbra Ignatiev who has over 15 years’ pattern and product design experience, BARBARIAN speaks to the young and young at heart, bringing a free-spirited and adventurous feeling to product. Her distinctive watercolours combine bright bursts of colour with muted neutrals and blacks, and feature an eclectic range of unique, contemporary patterns – from lush and tropical florals and feathers, to bohemian and tribal prints.
With her wild-at-heart rebel spirit, Barbra intends to inspire a feeling of freedom and boldness. “When people look at my art, I want them to feel propelled to take on life with a vengeance, a sense of humour, and a better sense of who they are”, said Barbra.
The large portfolio of bold and playful patterns offers enormous opportunity to partners and lends itself perfectly to a wide range of products. BARBARIAN is extensively licensed in the US across multiple categories including bags and accessories, stationery, gifting, tableware and fabrics. Demonstrating the brand’s global appeal, Barbra has also collaborated with Anthropologie for ceramic tableware, stationery and accessories featuring colourful floral prints which have proven to be a huge success.
Alicia Davenport, DRi Licensing said ‘There’s currently a strong mix and match pattern-driven trend into which BARBARIAN plays perfectly. We’re thrilled to be taking on this beautiful brand and blown away by the colour, freshness and strength of the graphics.”
