Animal motifs, sportswear, statement prints and tailoring. These are all key themes of MR PORTER’s exclusive collection with Gucci, launching May 18. Under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, Gucci is redefining luxury in the 21st century and that is exemplified best in MR PORTER x GUCCI’s exclusive collab.
It’s no wonder the Italian label, renowned for its craftsmanship, attention to detail and eclectic, romantic aesthetic, would partner with MR PORTER, the cutting-edge, online retail destination for men. The exclusive capsule collection features 43 pieces, with everything from ready-to-wear tailored suits to small leather accessories to embellished loafers. The collection is inspired by urbanism and self-expression, while still relaying Gucci’s classic tailored silhouettes and Italian-made luxury. In it, you’ll see a color palette of zesty oranges, yellows, azure blues and Bordeaux reds, in addition to Gucci’s most recent motifs, like the bee and the embroidered tiger. While still sophisticated, the collection exudes an element of luxury, eccentricity and is perfectly suited for the modern man who mixes work and play.
Fiona Firth, Buying Director for MR PORTER says that the collection “encapsulates everything Gucci stands for today.” As for what sets this collaboration apart from other exclusive capsule collections MR PORTER has launched in the past? “Together with this being MR PORTER’s first exclusive capsule with Gucci, the fact that it is Gucci, one of the most talked about global brands of the moment, makes it a hugely unique offering,” Firth says in an official press release. “And of course not forgetting the brand nature of exclusive product available throughout the collection!”
