Popular American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake will flash a designer wardrobe at the forthcoming second leg of his ‘The 20/20 Experience World Tour’, slated to kick off on May 30, 2014, in Abu Dhabi.
The 33-year-old musician has assigned the Italian-based English-bred menswear designer Neil Barret to create an array of custom-made looks for his upcoming high-octane stage performances. 
Replete with graphical motifs inspired from the Bauhaus’ designs and Modernism doctrines, the stagewear range will feature minimalist clean-lined costumes, replete with the designer’s signature streetwear style tailoring.
In addition to Timberlake’s outfits, the Devon-born designer has also created costumes for the music tour’s band members and backing dancers.
Before the latest tour wardrobe design venture, Barrett had also collaborated with the celebrated singer on several other occasions in the past, such as the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and the Legend of Summer tour with Jay-Z as well as various music videos.
Justin has a penchant for smartly created designerwear clothing. Last year, he had roped in American designer Tom Ford for his third solo album ‘The 20/20 Experience’. Ford created bespoke suits, ties, shirts and other accessories for the album video.
Trained from London’s Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, Neil Barret had earlier worked in leading fashion houses like Prada and Gucci before founding his namesake label in 1999. 
Launched in support of the Georgian-born singer’s third and fourth studio albums—The 20/20 Experience (2013) and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 (2013), The 20/20 Experience World Tour began on November 6, 2013 in New York City and is slated to wrap up on December 20, 2014 in Atlanta.
