Black, white and putty dominated the color palette at the Neil Barrett show We loved the studies is monochromism as models came down the runway in head to toe solid color punctuated by different textures and proportions. Longer length shirts shown over shirts looked fresh. Slim suitings in lightwieght fabrics, and a new take on the trench were key looks.

WWD reported that the designer employed a vacuum-sealing technique to apply panels of slick leather throughout the collection, at times trapping jacket lapels. But the gimmicks overshadowed the sharp tailoring, according to the paper.
