Clothing is, at its best, artwork. Sure, there’s a lot of throwaway fashion but you won’t find any of that at MR PORTER. The British retailer prides itself on only stocking the best of the best and that’s never been more apparent than with the ART/CRAFT capsule which hit the site today.
In a time when the conversation surrounding fashion’s sustainability is hitting fever pitch, the fact that the brands that make up the ART/CRAFT collection refuse the shortfalls of mass production is central to the collection’s importance. Not only is this an exhibition of some of menswear’s most beautiful items, but it’s also a manifesto for how we should be shopping.
