Mr Porter launches new clothing line The Japan Edit
It’s the home of sushi, anime, J-pop and Hello Kitty, and Japan’s fashion is also up there with the best of them.
And whether you’re favouring the green turn ups and orange shirt pairing (left) or think you look hard in a leather jacket with hood (right), you can get your hands on all the Japanese-inspired garb with Mr Porter’s brand new capsule, The Japan Edit.
The range is inspired by Tokyo nightlife, classic Tokyo architecture, traditional Japanese watering holes and the modern tea room – reimagined by artist Mr Tishk Barzanji.
Available online now, the collection features 15 brands with 122 pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories from Ambush, Auralee, Beams Plus, Blackmeans, Blue Blue Japan, Flagstuff, Hender Scheme, Human Made, Kapital, Mizuno, Needles, Neighborhood, Remi Relief, TakahiroMiyashita TheSoloist. and Wacko Maria x Fragment Design.
Each brand has created a unique collection, interpreting their own take on Japanese style and culture. Together, they comprise Mr Porter’s nod to the leading and defining voices of Japanese design in contemporary and luxury casualwear.
“Following the success of the ‘Made in California’ and ‘Vive La France’ capsule collections, we set out to pay tribute to another capital for men’s style: Japan,” said Daniel Todd, a buyer at MR PORTER.
“It’s a country we travel to seasonally and one that we are consistently inspired and refreshed by when exploring new voices and fresh approaches to menswear. Bringing together this calibre of designers under one capsule represents a remarkable opportunity to spotlight such talent to our global customer.”
