Devon-born fashion designer Neil Barrett has built his eponymous line around minimalist menswear. Following his graduation from Central St Martins, and a Master's degree at the Royal College of Art, Barrett began his professional career working in Florence for Gucci.
After five years of success, Barrett joined Prada and the label's first menswear collection was launched under his direction. In 1999, he launched the Neil Barrett brand, which is known for epitomising a modern, minimalist cool with a functional twist. A Hollywood favourite, in particular for his leather jackets and sharp suits, in 2006 Barrett also designed training apparel for Italy’s World Cup–winning football team.
