Editorial

The rigour of uniforms is a constant feature in Neil Barrett’s work and this linear, structured collection was no different. A recurring theme were the single or double horizontal bands, either contrasting or metallic, on blazers, overcoats, blousons and on the hems of some of the carrot trousers. A basic T-shirt replaced a shirt under a jacket, a trench was worn over bare skin, while a shirt became a work jacket with buttons or, more often, a zip. The understated colour palette was dominated by black and white, followed by grey and military tones, with the odd flash of red and blue was added to a few of the outfits or else a detail such as a photograph reproduction on a white shirt with ¾ sleeves and broken black bands. Even the denim was solid and structured, in line with the rest of the looks.
