Neil Barrett Tailor me Neil
The ink on his Saint Martin’s School for Design diploma hadn’t even dried yet that Neil Barrett was already taking his first steps as Gucci’s menswear line Senior Designer in Florence.
Five years later, his path crossed that of Patricio Bertelli, Miuccia Prada’s husband and Prada CEO, leading to his nomination as Prada’s first menswear collection designer, which was to be the keystone to its launch. its massive success and critical acclaim encouraged him to create his own eponymous brand in 1999.
Neil Barrett’s lines are refined, mastered, and strict, blending his English heritage - he’s the third tailor of the family - with narrower Italian cuts, which results in a timeless fashion that ranges from neutral colors to monochromic palettes.
His devotees are countless, including Justin Timberlake, Brad Pitt, Colin Firth, Kate Hudson and Jennifer, to name a few.
