Avast! The Nautically Inspired Collection from Mr Porter has Arrived
By Michael Vane in Men&aposs Fashion Trends on April 9, 2018
Mr Porter takes to the high seas with its new collection of nautically inspired menswear. The third release from Mr Porter’s exclusive Mr P. range references iconic watermen such as Jacques Cousteau and President John F Kennedy.
Designed and led by the guiding maxim: easy pieces, smart details and enduring style, the latest high-spring into early-summer collection spans 32 pieces of ready-to-wear clothing. For the first time, shorts are being introduced to the Mr P. range, sitting alongside relaxed tailoring, laidback sportswear, garment-dyed T-shirts and shirts with a colour palette of washed-out and sun-bleached tones.
Standout pieces include a matching seersucker blazer and shorts, knitted pique polos, a deep-rib stripe crew-neck T-shirt, a cotton camp-collar stripe shirt, a terracotta worker jacket and an unlined navy blouson.
“I love how this collection mixes a rugged ‘shipyard’ style with a more sophisticated ‘naval’ vibe but is then reinterpreted and made contemporary with Mr P.’s signature aesthetic,” says Olie Arnold, Style Director, Mr Porter. “A seersucker blazer could be seen as customary yacht club attire, but when teamed with a striped crew neck T-shirt and sneakers, it becomes very modern and wearable.”
Mr P.’s nautical inspired offerings are available now. The high-summer range will drop in July followed by fall and winter collections arriving in September and November, along with the introduction of shoes and accessories. Each capsule collection will be seasonal and inspired by eras and style icons, past and present.
