MR. P By MR Porter Arrives With Debut Capsule Collection

MR P. Debut Collection From MR Porter

Several weeks back I heard about something new brewing at MR. Porter, it was a new collection not only being sold by the luxury online retailer, but also designed by them. This is MR P., and it officially launched online yesterday.

You probably don’t need me to tell you about MR. Porter; Which is one of the homes to rare, sought after, expensive or luxury clothing labels in menswear, where you can find everything from Balenciaga to Vetements to Acne Studios, as well as street wear premium labels such as Common Projects, Adidas Originals and Scandi style from brands like No Nationality. The campaign said that it would be a range of clothes that they have themselves always wanted, stylish and understated, affordable but made to the highest standard. Here’s my picks from the 50+ capsule collection.

MR P. x Michael 84 Edit

First up there is this Shetland wool sweater. Made in Italy from 100% Shetland wool, I really love this burgundy red colour, perfect for this season. This piece comes in at £150.

My favourite type of jeans is selvedge denim, and MR P. has this pair of jeans in Japanese selvedge denim. A mid rise slim fit pair of jeans in an indigo wash, they really do look great. They come in at £180.

A crisp white shirt is definitely a wardrobe essential, and this slim fit will work in any wardrobe. It’s Italian cotton poplin with mother of pearl buttons from Australia. It’s priced at £155.

Roll neck jumpers have started to grow on me, and I’ve always loved nautical stripes, so when you put the two together, you’ll be on to a winner. It’s made from Merino wool with a touch of cashmere, made in Italy and costs £220.

Red is a very bold colour, and you can utilise it in your Winter knitwear with this heavy cable knit sweater. It comes in a relaxed fit, and is a good option for the colder weather. It’s priced at £280.

Last up is the humble plain white tee. Regular cut and made from soft cotton, and is priced at £55.

I do love a cashmere sweater, I think that everyone should own at least one, it’s a nice luxury piece to own and wear in the cooler temperatures. MR P. has this navy option, with a crew neck and ribbed trims. It comes in at £280.

Another good option for Winter is a sweatshirt, this premium loopback cotton sweatshirt comes in grey with contrasting hem and sleeves, it’s yours for £120.

I’ve picked out this breton striped long sleeve T-shirt in red and white, this is more of a statement piece than an everyday classic, it stands out for all the right reasons, and it’s very easy to layer with something you’ll already have in your wardrobe. It comes in at £95.

Verdict

MR P. had promised easy pieces and smart details, all at an affordable price point. The pieces do look the part, however the “affordability” statement may be a bit wide of the mark, with some pieces coming in at just under £900 for a leather jacket, and £675 for a wool-blend overcoat, they don’t really scream affordable. The premium and well made nature of the collection seems to be there, with many pieces being made in Italy, with the selvedge denim being made in Japan. You can shop the MR P. collection here.
