British Designer Neil Barrett has been at the forefront in redefining the contemporary male wardrobe, mastering a forward-thinking approach and an unprecedented point of view, since it’s foundation. Debuting at Pitti Uomo, Florence in 1999, the brand continues to deliver innovative and distinctive collections, combining precisely-cut tailoring, accurate detailing and athletic elements. Season upon season, the brand has expanded its distribution network and currently counts 550 retailers worldwide, alongside 30 mono-brand stores, whose concept has been developed with Zaha Hadid Architects and with fans including Brad Pitt, Ewan McGregor, Colin Firth, Lenny Kravitz, Mark Ruffalo, Orlando Bloom, Jake Gyllenhaal.
For this season, he brings his signature minimalist aesthetic to a brand to an all American outdoor brand, founded in 1979, that made its name by making performance outdoor product that could withstand the unpredictably harsh weather of the North-Eastern USA, none other than Penfield. Today, Penfield is as much a symbol of progressive streetwear as it is of the traditional New England outdoor style. From innovative fabrics to its exceptional use of colour and theme, Penfield is continually evolving its product lines to reflect the wandering spirit of its wearers. As the brand continues to evolve, Penfield remains true to its purpose: TO MAKE PRODUCT FOR A LIFE IN THE OPEN.
These two very different fashion brands have come together to create a beautifully crafted collection of functional puffer jackets that utilise technical nylon qualities and fabric mixes, to infuse design with functionality. Lightweight, waterproof, technical jackets mix exaggerated silhouettes, bi-colour, luxury eco-shearing and high gloss trims all finished with Neil Barrett’s signature Thunderbolt Enamel Badge.
