MR PORTER launches exclusive capsule collection with Nicholas Daley
Leading online menswear style destination MR PORTER has today launched an exclusive 13-piece capsule collection with emerging British menswear designer Nicholas Daley.
The collection draws inspiration from Daley’s dual Scottish and Jamaican heritage, showcasing hero styles and his take on unique textiles, with the backbone of the collection centring around three core values - "community", "craftsmanship" and "culture".
Highlights from the collection include a Curtis Wool and mohair-blend tweed jacket, a panelled cotton hooded parka, a striped beanie hat, and a printed tie-dye hoodie sporting the emblem of the reggae club night run by his mother and father in the late 1970’s in Scotland, called "The Reggae Klub’.
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.
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. Retail prices range from £140-£545.
