Video: Neil Barrett Fall/Winter 2013 Menswear Collection

Neil Barrett is definitely one of today's leading menswear designers and his design aesthetic is a welcome breath of fresh, fashion air. For fall/winter 2013, Neil has selected a primarily neutral colour palette consisting of brown, black, and white, with splashes of red and blue for interest. Beautiful cuts and exceptional tailoring reveal the true craftsmanship and creative genius behind this collection. I enjoyed the play with proportion throughout this collection and the skinny trousers cut just above the ankle and the sweaters with exaggerated geometric details are definitely the signature looks from this collection. Luxe leathers, rich wools, shimmering satins and voluptuous velvets are minimally incorporated throughout; and these textiles help to imbue this collection with a subtle, minimal elegance and sophistication. I love every piece--yes please!!!
