Neil Barrett

Milan: Neil Barrett focused on his greatest hits for F/W 12, presenting a parade of slim suiting and substantial outerwear in a monochromatic palette of greys, camel, burgundy and black. The designer brought a minimalist twist to classics like the stadium coat, the parka and the knit top, stripping each piece of extraneous details while playing with fabric and texture to create quilted satin sweatshirts or flannel peacoats with baseball jacket sleeves. Despite the many three button blazers and cropped trousers, it was Barrett’s sportier pieces such as chunky turtlenecks, bronze-dipped hoodies, and digitized tweed crewnecks that stood out as accessible yet creative staples.—Nina Stotler
