Indigo Days–Picking up right where he left off for the upcoming fall, Neil Barrett produces yet another clever collection. Fusing the safari motif with a contemporary view of sportswear and urban culture, Barrett arrives at a functional lineup, dressed in hues of purple and blue. Setting an easy tone right from the start with loose slouchy silhouettes and effortless combinations, sweatshirts, jackets, shorts and trousers paved the way for a tidy take on the contemporary wardrobe with a boy scout's honor. Here, button-downs and coordinating shorts took on the comfort of pajamas, while an endless number of pieces made a stylish impact with imperfect streaks of color. Meanwhile, where the collection really hit its stride was the introduction of leather. Dark and stylish, the bad boy classic made an appearance with sharp fits and gorgeous color options, ranging from a deep purple to blood-red. Continuing on this streak of winning details, pony hair was incorporated into jackets and footwear, before the collection came to a sound finish with tailored eveningwear, cut for a narrow fit.
