After taking a look at the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection lookbook from Blackbarrett by Neil Barrett, the denim is what really wows us (surprise surprise we know, but it is truly amazing!). While almost all the other looks are completely in grey scale, the denim is full of contrast and detail, but in a much more fashion-forward way than we are used to seeing. There is a denim work shirt and matching jean that has a light wash on one side and then more of a distressed darker wash on the other leg (check out a more classic version of this shirt here). While together these two items would definitely be too overwhelming, the lookbook demonstrates how well they work when paired with more monotone clothing. There is also an awesome pair of dark denim jeans with distressed light wash denim stripes going down the leg. Talk about a making a statement! (And you can deny it all you want but when it comes to fashion, what’s the point if your not making a statement?)

Since its initial launch in 2007 Neil Barrett’s youth-dedicated brand, Blackbarrett, has gone through many themes and motifs, however there are a few things that have stayed consistent: its unique sense of style, modern and always eye-catching campaigns, and of course its killer denim. So, naturally the latest from Barrett is nothing less than fantastic—cosmic even! The Spring Summer 2011 campaign dubbed The Lad Who Fell To Earth includes all that Blackbarrett has become known for and then some. What are we absolutely in love with? Well, besides all of it we are obsessed with the ultra-creased detail on some of the denim. But we’ll let you take a look and gather that for yourselves!
