Mr P. launches Spring 2024 collection

February 19, 2024

February 2024 (GLOBAL)Mr P. is pleased to introduce its new collection for spring 2024, crafted with considered design details and more responsible materials, furthering its ongoing journey to deliver collections increasingly designed with longevity in mind without compromising on quality or style.

Debuting on MR PORTER from 19 February, with product dropping throughout the season, Mr P. continues to offer luxury seasonal staples across ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear. New and hero styles are updated with refined details and silhouettes, produced using the finest responsible fabrics and crafted with elevated construction techniques that complement each design. With elongating a garment’s lifespan in mind, techniques used include Columbia stitching on jackets to reinforce linings and topstitching on trousers to provide added durability. From idea and initial sketch to fabric selection and production, Mr P. works with a trusted network of craftspeople to deliver collections with enduring style that are made to last.

As with previous collections, this season’s vision derives from iconic cultural references and artistic figureheads. Drawing inspiration from the book Take Ivy, an assortment of candid photographs of students at Ivy League universities in the 1960s, the collection’s design direction is reinforced through preppy influences such as varsity jackets, relaxed tailoring, checked shirts and jackets, knitted polo shirts and cardigans. Furthermore, the paintings and work of renowned American artist Ms Alice Neel served as inspiration for the collection’s colour palette and use of print and texture. Hand-painted bespoke prints feature across shirts and swimwear, textural free-flowing stripes are found on shirting and polos, alongside cotton-terry fabric used for crochet-knit cardigans, T-shirts and polos.

Tailoring continues to be a huge focus this season, increasing the edit twice as much with the introduction of new elevated suiting for all summer occasions. Highlights include two crease-resistant suits ideal for travelling, a Japanese cotton and nylon-blend black suit with a relaxed crisp handle, a double-breasted wool-mohair suit in ecru alongside two wool, linen and silk-blend suits in a renowned Loro Piana fabric rendered in a khaki and electric-blue colourway. A range of double- and single-breasted linen suits round off the edit in a warm, neutral colour palette of pink, ecru, black and navy – the trousers are available in both a drawstring and flat-waistband finish, enabling customers to customise their looks.

Now oneof the brand’s best-selling categories driven by classic styles including Derby shoes and loafers, Mr P.’s footwear edit also expands this spring. For this season, Mr P. more than doubles its loafer offering by introducing a new range of easy slip-on and lace-up lightweight styles with deck and rubber graduated soles. Footwear highlights include the black and white Jacques loafer, suede sandals reimagined in ultra-fine padded suede, leather and suede-mix sneakers and Derby shoes – produced using leather and suede from certified tanneries.

The new collection builds upon Mr P.’s ongoing commitment to become fully aligned with the sustainability design guidelines set by YOOX NET-A-PORTER’s Infinity strategy by 2025. The brand continues to make progress by prioritising more responsible materials and processes, such as localised production and limiting the use of blends where possible, to ensure items are more easily recyclable at the end of their life. Fabrics include traceable linen, certified cotton and wools, and leathers sourced from accredited tanneries. The pieces that meet these guidelines will sit within MR PORTER’s Craftsmanship Code, a curated edit of brands and products championing craft, local communities, responsible manufacturing and sustainable materials. Mr P. also continues to embed Digital ID technology within its garments to encourage product circularity and transparency.

“Mr P. prides itself on being able to offer quality pieces that empower our customers to explore their own style with confidence, and the spring collection is no different. This season, we’ve focused and expanded Mr P.’s signature aesthetic of “dressed-down tailoring and dressed-up sportswear” to give our customers what they really love best. With some great transitional items, Mr P.’s sustainability journey is ever evolving. It’s hugely important to us that our collections make our customers look and feel good, and we know this starts at the beginning of a garment’s life – no one should have to compromise on style to dress responsibly.”

Mr Olie Arnold, Style Director, MR PORTER

“With more responsible materials and processes used within this collection, it’s been a lot of work behind the scenes to reach the increasingly high sustainability standards we set for Mr P. Our ambition is to constantly improve the brand, grow each season and make those important decisions so our customers can trust in us when taking a more conscious approach to their purchases. We are proud to be establishing the brand as a leader in this area for menswear.”
