The best of both worlds – MR PORTER and Gucci team up for a killer capsule collection
When it comes to fashion, it’s hard to resist a good collaboration. Two geniuses are better than one, right? In an industry where boundaries are constantly being pushed and tested, it’s always nice to see big-time names coming together to create sartorial magic. Lucky for us, the teams from award-winning men’s style online destination MR PORTER and iconic luxury fashion house Gucci have teamed up to bring us a capsule collection that celebrates the best of each brand.
Brought together under the creative direction of Gucci’s own Alessandro Michele, this capsule collection with MR PORTER features 43 pieces inspired by urbanism and self-expression. At its core, the collection is anchored in classic tailoring silhouettes and eccentric sportswear – the ready to wear, shoes and accessories infuses Gucci’s rich textures and fabrications in a vivid colour palette of zesty oranges and yellows, azure blues and Bordeaux reds. This exclusive collab weaves together MR PORTER’s traditional English-tailoring roots and Gucci’s Italian romanticism, with each piece reflecting lightness in spirit plus pure eccentricity.
Gucci’s iconic bee and tiger motifs appear throughout the collection, as well as some brand-new imagery in the form of skeletons and cats. Highlights in the collection 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 show-stopping horsebit loafers in a GG wallpaper print in a striking mimosa shade. Other key pieces include 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.
