Architecture Meets Fashion

March 26, 2009

Neil Barrett 

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.

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.”

3.1 Philip Lim

“beautiful clothes with added touches of madness, striving towards the imperfection”

Lim says, his clothes are meant to redefine as opposed to define.    Mixing classical with contemporary while reorganizing the rules of fashion, he  delivers approachable high-quality fashion.  Lim pays tremendous focus to the quality of fabrics while uniquely mixing heavy cashmeres, silk, worn cottons, and wools .

I would imagine Andre 3000 wearing these clothes.

Lim debuted his line fall of 2005 and has experienced instant success; being recognized for numerous prestigious awards & organization i.e. Vogue Magazine, Council of Fashion Designers of America, CGDA Swarovski Award for emerging Talent.
