Neil Barrett show opened up with minimal weightless whiteness; and kept on going with a tight marble-like palette. He showed us a really precise and polished collection, with an accurate reference to what he defined as the perfect ideal of male beauty: Roman classicism. From antique sculptures he took the accurate lines, the soft hues, and also marble’s textures that has been digitally pulled to create new fabrics (marble become also a camouflage pattern shown on an all-over printed sweatshirt). Leitmotif the marble statue, scanned and stretched as it has been created using Glitchè. With linear and no-weight as the keys for SS15, Neil Barrett exercised in harmony and proportion – the result was well accomplished, and the pieces revealed to be unforced as well as structured. Longer lengths appeared on tops, and an interesting play in layering: short-sleeved shirt over longer crew neck tee, long coat over tuxedo over crew neck tee. Flashy nickel zips popped out on side slits on sweatshirt (zipped precisely to succeed in putting hands in pockets), bombers and jackets.
He defined his SS15 men as modern travelers, fresh in their structured but airy silhouettes, never missing to dress up in a very wearable sportswear-inspired way (the trainers the outfit were paired with completed and accentuated this mood).
