MR PORTER 2013 Exclusive Collaborations
Last week, MR PORTER kicked off a string of exclusive collaborations with some of menswear’s most talked-about labels and designers. First up was a collection with Beams Plus featuring surf and Ivy League-inspired pieces like khaki board shorts and button-down polos. On May 21, the French label AMI will follow with a 13-piece capsule inspired by the cool crowds of Paris’s Canal Saint Martin — well-tailored blazers, jackets and trousers that embody Alexandre Mattiussi’s elegant approach to sportswear. Other forthcoming collaborators include Foot the Coacher and Grenson — who partnered on Japanese-designed, English-made boots — and Raf Simons on a floral-heavy assortment of shorts, blazers, T-shirts and shoes. Bringing things home in June will be Balenciaga’s new creative director, Alexander Wang, who updated athletic staples like baseball shirts with his signature downtown cool.
It’s a diverse lineup that offers something for almost every taste and to show you just how versatile the collections are, MR PORTER asked our editors put together one outfit from each capsule for our readers. Browse the looks here and for more on the 2013 collaborations, check out MR PORTER online.
