MR PORTER knows how to spot a good designer on the up. Their carefully selected capsule collections act as a more commercial platform for high-end designers, while bringing their fashion wares to the site. This time they’ve turned to Paris-based, South Korea-born label WOOYOUNGMI to bring the goods. Ms. Woo Youngmi aspired to create a collection that was an evolution from the labels Spring/Summer 2014 line, talking of her inspiration for the collection she said:
“I was particularly inspired by the colours of minimal natural landscapes: sky blue, desert terracotta and cactus green.”
This resulted in pieces such as T-shirts and button-up shirts using nature-inspired prints, shorts, sweatpants, sneakers and bags, all of which are available now exclusively to MR PORTER.
