MILAN — Neil Barrett has teamed up with Herno, a high-end Italian sportswear specialist, to produce a cobranded capsule collection of eight down jackets called Neil Barrett for Herno.
The ultralight jackets, made with a special technique in which the feathers are injected directly into the polyester coat, will make their debut at Pitti Uomo in January. Herno developed the process last year and caught Barrett’s eye, spurring the partnership. The Neil Barrett for Herno jackets are slim and weigh 25 percent of a traditional down coat.
