neil barrett sporting and smart

Neil Barrett Spring/Summer 2013

Neil Barrett once again balances Sport and Smart perfectly, a combination which has kept the label fresh season after season. The colour pattern, prints and fabrics all play to the idea of a multi-layered, forward thinking tailoring that couldn’t be easier to wear – not a sentiment that could be applied to all of Spring/Summer 2013′s showings. A serious contender for collection of the season.


Fus­ing the safari motif with a con­tem­po­rary view of sports­wear and urban cul­ture, Bar­rett arrives at a func­tional lineup, dressed in hues of pur­ple and blue. Set­ting an easy tone right from the start with loose slouchy sil­hou­ettes and effort­less com­bi­na­tions, sweat­shirts, jack­ets, shorts and trousers paved the way for a tidy take on the con­tem­po­rary wardrobe with a boy scout’s honor. Here, button-downs and coor­di­nat­ing shorts took on the com­fort of paja­mas, while an end­less num­ber of pieces made a styl­ish impact with imper­fect streaks of color. Mean­while, where the col­lec­tion really hit its stride was the intro­duc­tion of leather. Dark and styl­ish, the bad boy clas­sic made an appear­ance with sharp fits and gor­geous color options, rang­ing from a deep pur­ple to blood-red.

  1. Those outerwear jackets are cool and different. The stitching on the vest is one of my favorite looks, but all the jackets are superb.
