Mr P. launches sustainable 36-piece knitwear collection
MR PORTER’s Mr P. own brand has today launched a 36-piece knitwear collection made from surplus yarns and recycled and organic materials as it continues its commitment to “designing for circularity and sustainability”.
Designed for longevity, the extremely soft knits have been carefully developed from the finest spinners and makers in the Marche region of Italy, celebrating uniqueness, irregularity, and imperfections through each design, while developing new creations from end of life product.
The collection features knitted coats, sweaters, rollnecks, shirts, T-shirts and a hoodie, in a palette of warm browns, greys, pinks, camels and navy shades, fashioning iconic and contemporary silhouettes.
Echoing Mr P.’s dedication to timelessness and uncompromising quality, the woven pieces have been crafted from a mixture of surplus yarn, recycled cashmere, organic cotton and certified (cruelty-free) wool.
Key pieces include a jacquard-knitted sweater made from virgin wool, alpaca and cashmere threads to create a blurred, rippling stripe, a soft boucle knitted T-shirt spun from wool and silk, and a dropped shoulder chunky hoodie knitted from a wool blend with surplus alpaca threads, which has ribbed edges to define the relaxed shape.
Sam Kershaw, Buying Director at MR PORTER, said: “Mr P. is constantly evolving, and this new recycled knitwear expansion drives an exciting next step into the brand’s mission of ‘designed with promise and crafted without compromise’.
“Quality and style continue to lie at the heart of Mr P., and we are delighted to be able to create these extremely carefully crafted pieces, that have been designed in exemplary profiles. Working closely together with our Italian recyclers and makers, we have been able to create everlasting products that all offer a unique look and provide our customers with the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of a product’s lifecycle in a new and more meaningful way.”
The Mr P. knitwear collection ranges from £195 to £745 and is available from MR PORTER from today, 21 February, 2022.
