Devon born Englishman, Neil Barrett began his career in Fashion after graduating from the illustrious Fashion college, Central St Martins, from this he was appointed Senior Men’s Designer at Gucci and Prada, where he established a new blueprint for minimal menswear. In 1999, Neil Barrett founded his eponymous label, with immediate praise from buyers and press. Ever since, Neil Barrett has delivered innovative and distinctive designs, with real attention to fabric development and cutting-edge techniques. Masculine, ageless and progressive, his designs combine precisely-cut tailoring, accurate detailing and athletic elements. Season after season, the brand has continuously grown and counts now over 400 doors worldwide alongside 15 mono-brand stores, whose concept has been developed by the late and great Zaha Hadid.
His latest venture is to team up with one of the leading names in Luxury Fashion and lifestyle retailing, Harvey Nichols to produce ORIGINALS: Vol #1’, an exclusive collection that revisits the work of the designer over the past decade, pinpointing the archetypes of the Neil Barrett wardrobe – available exclusively at Harvey Nichols.
‘ORIGINALS: Vol #1’ is a re-edition of 12 original designs, including iconic buffalo jackets, leather-detailed coats and tees, jacquard suiting, color-blocked shirts, and the double-bonded sweatshirts synonymous to the brand and promises to be a resolutely masculine collection of timeless pieces for the contemporary man’s wardrobe, underscored by Barrett’s distinctive vision.
The collection will be showcased in Harvey Nichols Project 109, a concept space that houses the latest in lifestyle products and hosts a curated series of installations and pop-u to celebrate the launch of the refurbished Harvey Nichols menswear department.
