Coming from a British heritage of master tailors, Barrett was introduced to the art of fashion at an early age. After a master degree in mens fashion he worked for Italian giant Gucci, Prada & even had a collaboration with Puma.
In 1999 Barrett launched his self-named label and in 2006 this amazing store was opened in Minato-ku, Tokyo Japan. I think there are strong coorelations between fashion & design. Everything from the design lines, inspirations and philosophy –
“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” – Coco Chanel
Flagship store in Tokyo, Japan.
Architecture design by Zaha Hadid Architects
A few selections, from his label described as: “his signature style stems from his reworking of iconic men’s wear details and fit. The product’s broad appeal lies in Neils ability to combine timeless quality, wearability and fashion trend.”
