Milan Men's Fashion Week SS16: Neil Barrett

Milan Men's Fashion Week SS16: Neil Barrett

Prints charming

Text: Pakkee Tan

For spring, Neil Barrett kept the tailoring for the collection clean and simple, but played with prints for a refreshing change

Prints were the main focus this season... Barrett sent down variations of a camouflage print in grey and blue, which were used on everything from pants to mid-length spring coats. 

A schoolboy aesthetic reigned the runway... with plenty of references to tailored uniforms, as well as accoutrements such as backpacks slung nonchalantly on one shoulder.

Aviator jackets... were given the Neil Barrett treatment, and they have never looked better. Whether in supple leather or intricate (but not precious) prints, the lightweight jacket is sure to be a big hit when spring 2016 rolls around.

The key accessory for the Barrett man is... the crossbody bag. Especially when the print matches your pants and coat (a lá Look 16).

Our favourite look... was Look 36. The blue camouflage-print coat is the perfect companion to spring and its fresh take on an old classic made it all the more perfect for the streets.
