A vivid colour palette of azure blues and Bordeaux reds, zesty oranges and yellows land on the newly announced MR PORTER x Gucci Exclusive Capsule anchored in classic tailoring silhouettes and eccentric sportswear. Inspired by self-expression, Gucci‘s Creative Director Alessandro Michele brought all the Gucci’s iconic motifs. The bee and tiger, and the newest additions, such as the skeleton and the cat, are emblazoned across the body of a blazer or pocket of a pair of washed jeans.
The Italian fashion powerhouse builds on the success of its exclusive capsule collection for Net a Porter last year with a new capsule this time for Mr Porter, “whose clients are unquestionably some of the most knowledgeable and sophisticated menswear fashion consumers in the marketplace.” MR PORTER’s many collaborations include an exclusive release with French fashion house Lanvin.
Stand out pieces for the award-winning global retail destination for men’s style include a lilac fil coupé shirt, a yard wool jacquard bee crewneck sweater, a blueberry-coloured technical jersey zipped jacket with paisley print and embroidered tiger, and a pair of iconic horsebit loafers in a GG wallpaper print elaborated in striking mimosa.
The rest of the collection features blue-washed five pocket jeans, prep school-inspired tailored jackets and trousers along with two formal suits, technical sportswear, and small accessories including leather bracelets, cufflinks, ties, watches and scarves. A yellow Gucci label will feature across each ready to wear piece, unique to this exclusive capsule collection.
This exclusive capsule collection is an exemplary union of MR PORTER’s traditional English-tailoring roots and Gucci‘s Italian romanticism, and all pieces are anchored in a lightness in spirit and eccentricity.
“We are the thrilled to partner with Gucci on this exclusive project, at a time when the House is so vibrant and influential in its designs. Alessandro and his team’s talents truly shine through with this unique capsule collection of iconic pieces, all of which we’re sure will be an instant success with our global customer.”
Prices range from £140 / $200 to £2,030 / $3,350.
