INFASHIONITY Menswear Fashion Blog presents: Neil Barrett new AW16 menswear collection
After a strong spring summer 2016 collection presented last June which I had the pleasure to discover live from the designer’s Milan Fashion Week show, Neil Barrett continues to develop his own vocabulary , which is basically a blueprint for an essentially masculine wardrobe. Barrett’s strength season after season indeed resides in his ability to speak the simple easy language of menswear essential garments by still reinventing them and making them modern and contemporary, as well as instantly desirable.
You basically want your closet to be the collection. From perfectly tailored overcoats and minimal chic looks to stylish casual wear, everything a man needs is in this collection. King-of-menswear.
Inspired by the overall genreal return of the 70’s in fashion, Barrett brings his own touch and his strong fashion knowledge enables him to play with codes, patterns and fabrics as much as he wants. Prince of Wales check on coats, modernist minimal and graphic motifs on bomber jackets and causal wear.
The season’s silhouette is redefined , with raised waists and torsos abbreviated with shorter knitwear and jackets.
Classic neil Barrett codes are still here , such as cropped trousers, steel toe boots and sweaters.
The color palette is mainly based on shades of grey and a beautiful warm chocolate brown. Bright red sometimes pops up to brighten the collection.
