Featuring more than 100 exclusive pieces inspired by the Golden State
If one ever doubts the West Coast is a fashion force to be reckoned with, look no further than Mr Porter’s Made in California capsule collections. Starting April 18, in its first initiative to spotlight a location, the e-commerce site launches 146 exclusive spring pieces, designed by 12 brands with strong ties to the Golden State. “California is extremely important to us,” says Sam Lobban, Mr Porter’s buying manager.
Inspired by the state’s lifestyle and culture, Mollusk, John Elliott, Simon Miller, Stüssy, The Elder Statesman, James Perse, Outerknown and Rick Owens are offering items exclusive to Mr Porter. Amiri, Golden Bear, Noon Goons and Second/Layer are making their debuts on the retail destination.
Collaboration came naturally for designers like Joshua Willis, co-founder of Los Angeles-based Second/Layer. “We are all born and raised right here on this California soil.” mrporter.com.
