Neil Barrett attended the Prada cocktail party as part of Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 in Italy yesterday. The British designer wore a black cotton contrast panel sweatshirt from Neil Barrett Fall Winter 2013, featuring leather detailings on the sleeves. The geometric designs were a big feature in their Fall Winter collections, and who better to model it than the man himself? This is easily my favourite piece from the entire collection. The sweatshirt trend is still going strong, the leather panels just add a great stylish edge to it.

Neil Barrett was an instrumental figure to the starting of Prada's menswear line in the 90s. He worked closely with Prada to develop their menswear range before starting his own label in 1999. Nice to see him coming back to support Prada after all these years. I met Neil several years ago at his menswear show in Milan. Blogging was still at its infancy but Neil was so accommodating and all encompassing, he left a great impression in my mind. 

Nice person and nice sweater. Oh I want the sweater so bad now!
