Milan based designer Neil Barrett took the latest fashion week to present his spring summer 2015 menswear collection.
The designer has explored monochrome looks often combined with head turning prints. The images of antique statues are twisted and manipulated with a modern ease, at the same time meticulously matching the clean shape of youngful yet classic men’s pieces. While somewhat high in volume the pieces are none-the-less in tune with the season. The airy mood beautifully seized with the selection of summer-ready materials.
What catches the eye is Barrett’s ever impressive ability to reshape a classic garment. The contemporary lines close to the designer have now delivered a new vision of the ever returning jean jacket as well as the dominant bomber.
While winter collection had a broad range, the pieces shown on the milanese runway in June are easy to fit into an age group. Today’s Neil Barrett guy is in his mid twenties he can still pull a print (and not look ridiculous), however his style is elegant, refined and progressively changing.
The hard work behind spring summer 2015 is clearly moving the brand from a premium to a luxury label, nevertheless it is undoubtedly still appealing to the eye of a younger customer.
