Neil Barrett

Briton Neil Barrett was part of the Prada and Gucci menswear team before he struck out on his own in menswear first, then womenswear in 2006 at New York Fashion Week. Milan-based, Barrett has managed to combine sharp British tailoring with an Italian sense of drama in his collections. His sensibility – menswear-inspired women’s collections – has found fans in Madonna, Kirsten Dunst, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. Brad Pitt also wore Neil Barrett in Mr and Mrs Smith.
