The premier online retail destination for men’s style, MR PORTER, has joined hands with game-changing streetwear brand Off-White to launch an exclusive capsule collection.
Dropping on Monday, January 21, the eclectic 44-piece collection, titled Modern Office, is created under the direction of Off-White founder Virgil Abloh and is described as “a revisionist dress code of traditional and modern sportswear, inspired by a new generation of workers and their workplaces.” In an exclusive email interview with L'Officiel USA, we chatted with Abloh about how meaningful the collaboration was to him, and shares his hopes for the consumer.
“Securing the MR PORTER account has always been a goal for me," he began. "Not only have I admired it being a consumer in the marketplace and shopping it, but because I could always see my brand aligned with it. I’m so honored to team up with the team and produce this capsule exclusively for MR PORTER; I’m happy to have our worlds collide introducing the MR PORTER consumer who may not be aware of Off-White and bringing the Off-White customer who may not be aware of MR PORTER to an elevated place of luxury shopping.”
The Mr Porter X Off White collection will include 20 ready-to-wear pieces, 18 accessories and six pairs of footwear. Standout pieces to shop include an all-over logo-print washed cotton heavy canvas jacket; wide-leg linen trousers with tonal arrow logo; “Modern Office” logo print jersey T-shirt; low-top 3.0 leather sneakers; “Class of 2013” iPhone X cover.
