Continuing the collection’s themes of athleticism and suiting, the corresponding imagery places the clothing close to the action. Inspired by memories of his childhood in Devon, the Scott Trindle-shot campaign “reflects Neil’s British childhood with a nostalgic touch of the 70’s” – think Gregory’s Girl without the retro hair styles and ill-fitting school uniforms.
Stocking the menswear wardrobe with pieces merging sportswear with sharp tailored cuts, is a trait synonymous with the British-born designer. Trackies and Prince of Wales patterns, go-faster stripes and peaked collars. Alongside the imagery comes a video directed by Julien Pujol showing Barrett’s cast wandering the school grounds in everyone’s dream uniform: John Motson-esque sheepskin jackets and football kit-inspired jerseys.
