Mr Porter has joined forces with Prada on a 32-piece menswear capsule collection. This is Prada’s first menswear exclusive with an online retail partner. Since Mr Porter began carrying Prada in 2016, the brand has been one of their top selling labels in both clothes and shoes. Drawing inspiration from the eras of bowling popularity, the 1950s and 1980s, the collection includes camp-collar shirts in Hawaiian and pop-cartoon prints, and madras and gingham checks; mid-century-style block-panelled stripe cardigans and stripe knit t-shirts and blouson jackets in satin and suede. Continuing fashion’s love affair with logos, there are also two printed t-shirts with exclusive Prada bowling logos.
Pleated and flat-front trousers, polo shirts and a mohair bi-colour wool blazer complete the ready-to-wear offering. The vintage inspiration also informs the range’s footwear styles, with loafers, creeper and cap-toe Derbies and cap-toe sneakers completing the look.
The collection is set to debut April 25, with the price range from £260 to £2,450.
