Milanese designer label Neil Barrett has entered the ever-growing athleisure market with the launch of BLACKBARRETT, a line that aims to bridge the divide between fashion and fitness. Barrett’s fondness of geometry can be seen throughout BLACKBARRETT’s debut collection, as jagged patterns and hi-vis stripes are used across sporty essentials — sweaters, track pants, hoodies and the like.

Built-in kangaroo pockets, sealed zippers and sweat-wicking fabrics enhance the collection’s athletic credentials, and a minimal palette keeps things looking modern and low-key.

BLACKBARRETT’s debut line is available now via SSENSE. Get familiar with the ever-growing athleisure market with our in-depth report on sportswear brands to know right now.
