Inspired by Japan’s take on American classics
This is the perfect time of year to upgrade your wardrobe, with all of the spring-summer collections finally arriving in stores. Or online. Mr P, the own-label brand from Mr Porter, the web-based fashion portal for men, has just revealed its own spring line.
Now available on the website, the new collection is designed to reflect the best in contemporary menswear while also complementing the building blocks of Mr P’s core range of classics. A key inspiration is ‘Ametora’ – or ‘American Traditional’ in Japanese – which is a trend in Japanese menswear that celebrates American classics.
Highlights include a varsity green cardigan, a navy-and-stone baseball jacket, and double-pleat front trousers. Japan and Japanese touches are shown throughout, with workwear pieces such as a black selvedge crop chino and an indigo chore jacket, both made using Japanese fabrics.
A series of printed camp-collar shirts, inspired by Japanese kimonos, sits alongside Mr P’s signature selvedge denim and sock ranges, which are all produced in Japan. Outerwear highlights include a suede workwear jacket with patch pocket details and a double-faced parka in khaki and stone, which returns this season in a new boxy silhouette.
