This exercise in optical effects involved Bauhaus-inspired graphics that formed bold patchworks on sweatshirts, blousons and blazers. Each item came blocked in different combinations of colors and bonded fabrics, including sweatshirt material, fur, mohair, leather, velvet and ponyskin. The concept was sleekly executed, if repetitive, relieved by some terrific and oversize single- and double-breasted overcoats.

Bottoms included skinny velvet pants and an on-trend cropped pant with details at the ankle, such as zippers at the back. Targeting a man who is young at heart, Neil Barrett continues to push his label beyond tailoring into a sportier arena.
