Feburary 2011 was an interesting moment for mens’s fashion. It was the time when two of the most polarizing figures made their debut. Who would have guessed that three years later they would be collaborating on an interesting capsule that’s bound to turn some heads.
It was recently announced that the one and only Mr Porter would be joining forces with J.W. Anderson for a small capsule that’s going to be perfect as we transition from the winter to the spring.
If you’re unfamiliar with Mr. Porter, the retailer has easily become the premier global online retail destination for men’s style since launching in February 2011. Over the years, Mr. Porter has become known for its exclusive items from some of world’s leading designers, including Gucci, Givenchy, Burberry, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana and Richard James. How, the brand is also known for hosting pieces specialist brands such as John Lobb and Valextra.
J.W. Anderson is one of the more exciting and intriguing figures originating from the London fashion scene. His breakout moment also came in Feburary 2011 after he paired a mod paisley silk pajama suit with a white rubber clerical collar, which was the centerpiece of his second women’s collection. Since then, Anderson has released collections that often blur gender lines.
At first, you wouldn’t expect this collaboration to be successful, but somehow, it works for both parties. For example, the eight-piece set includes a pair of white button-downs and a very appealing and stylish sweatshirt. Of course, there are rebellious items like the quilted-sleeved denim jacket and the pleated shorts which resemble the silhouette of a skirt.
Before passing judgement, check out the collection below. While some items may not earn a spot in your wardrobe, we’re certain that several pieces will indeed become a part of your rotation, which you can purchase on the Mr. Porter website.
