The retro vibes are still going strong, bringing together the house of Prada with MR PORTER to launch the luxury brand’s first menswear online exclusive on April 25. Inspired by bowling nostalgia, the 32-piece collection will draw from the 1950s and 1980s with Hawaiian and cartoon prints, gingham checks and madras patterned shirts alongside polos , striped cardigans and blouson jackets in satin and suede.
“We are incredibly proud to be working with Prada on this special project and to be the first men’s online retailer to partner on an exclusive collection. The retro themes of 1950s and 1980s menswear were an effortless inspiration for the campaign and content, and allowed us to easily meld the worlds of MR PORTER and Prada,” said Toby Bateman, managing director.
We’re particularly excited about the footwear offerings, which will include loafers, creepers, cap-toe sneakers and Derbies, as well as the launch event that will be held at a bowling alley in Brooklyn on April 26.
