Following his studies at Central Saint Martins
and the Royal College of Art in London, Neil Barrett was recruited by Gucci
, where he would stay for five years before joining Prada
to help establish their menswear line. Known for his modern, minimalist, and masculine interpretation of classic men's wear, Barrett launched his own label in 1999 and made his runway debut in Milan in 2002. Following a collaboration with Puma
where he designed a collection of shoes and apparel for Italy's National Football Team, Barrett launched a women's line with the same sleek approach he has to men's wear.
