Nicholas Daley exclusive capsule for MR PORTER
MR PORTER, the world’s leading destination for men’s style, is pleased to launch its first exclusive capsule with London based menswear designer Nicholas Daley. Available from 22 October, the 13 piece exclusive collection draws inspiration from Daley’s duel Scottish and Jamaican heritage, showcasing hero styles and his take on unique textiles with the backbone of the collection centring around three core values of Community, Craftsmanship and Culture.
Highlights from the collection include a Curtis Wool and Mohair-Blend Tweed Jacket, a Panelled Cotton Hooded Parka, a Striped JuteBlend Beanie and a Printed Tie-Dyed Cotton-Jersey Hoodie and T-shirt which sport the emblem of the reggae club night run by his mother and father in the late 1970s in Scotland. Showcasing Daley’s ability to blend contrasting elements, the Panelled Twill, Jacquard and Corduroy Cardigan and the Aloha Camp-Collar Shirt combine Yorkshire corduroy with a geometric silk-jacquard cloth woven especially for Daley by renowned mill Vanners of Sudbury.
Mr Nicholas Daley explores his Jamaican-Scottish heritage by working with international manufacturers to create bespoke textiles that subvert traditional British fabrics. His collections are a melting pot of influences from different musical genres and play on the importance of multiculturalism in the design world.
