Mr. Porter Launches Stylish Knitwear Collection For Seasonal Layering
Upgrade your sweater game with sustainable knits made from recycled materials, surplus yarns and organic fibers.
Your knitwear rotation just got an eco-conscious, stylish upgrade for spring, so don’t stow away your sweaters just yet: Mr. Porter’s in-house line, Mr. P, just launched a 36-piece collection dedicated to ramping up seasonal layering with the environment in mind.
The luxury retailer, already a reliable source for some of the most refined brands on the planet — not to mention an entire assortment of luxury watches — offers its distinctive vision for elegant, yet accessible style through the Mr. P line, culminating in a collection made from recycled materials, surplus yarns and organic fibers.
The collection offers something for everyone, from subtle yet luxurious crew neck sweaters to a surprisingly refined wool-blend hoodie, with a range of pricing suitable for seasoned style aficionados and newcomers (the collection starts at $255 and tops out at $1,100).
The company worked with skilled knitters, spinners and finishers in the Marche region of Italy to deliver a collection rich in color and texture, incorporating reverse stitching, rolled hems, soft-brushed finishes and plenty of colorful depth.
The assortment speaks to refined yet laidback elegance, and many pieces are styled in spring-ready fashion with off-white jeans and sturdy Oxford shoes — the sort of look that’s not out of place at the office or a speakeasy.
Even the boucle-knit T-shirt, made using looped yarn, is striking enough to wear with a soft-shouldered Italian suit and spring loafers.
“Working closely together with our Italian recyclers and makers, we have been able to create everlasting products that all offer a unique look and provide our customers with the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of a product’s lifecycle in a new and more meaningful way,” said Mr. Porter Buying Director Sam Kershaw.
The luxury retailer wants to go a step further down the path towards sustainability, too — this collection is part of its commitment to make its Mr. P brand fully sustainable and circular by 2025.
In short, no fabric will go to waste as part of the company’s Mr. P line, and if future results are as handsome and versatile as these knitwear pieces, we’re excited to see what’s next.
