Opinion-splitting Italian brand Marni has teamed up with pioneering Japanese luggage manufacturer PORTER for the latest in a long line of successful releases. Marking the duo’s 13th collaborative venture, Marni x PORTER effortlessly straddles the line between functionality and elegance for FW19, fashioning a selection of bags that would find themselves just as much at home on the runway as they would in the streets.
Presenting an interpretation of PORTER’s now-famous nylon construction, Marni covers each silhouette with a matte bonded nylon twill and checkered ombre pattern. The range of hands-free bag designs, compact cross-body iterations, and a variety of wallets is highlighted by a special cross-body bag, a style previously explored by the likes of Prada and Virgil Abloh for his first Louis Vuitton collection.
All bags from the collection come complete with leather zipper pulls, co-branded patch branding, and various color takes on PORTER’s recognizable orange lining, presented here in sheen yellow and brown.
To commemorate the release, MITSUKOSHI Ginza and ISETAN’s Haneda Store in Japan will be releasing the latest Marni x PORTER collection for pre-sale on August 20. Information on a wider release is not yet known.
