"All you need for your summer getaway and beyond." That's how Messrs Byron and Dexter Peart, the twin brothers behind WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, describe their new six-piece collection, which is exclusively available on MR PORTER. The choice of words is apt, as the idea of necessity - "all you need" - is central to the identity of the brand, which was developed with the practical requirements of the modern traveller in mind. "Our goal has always been to serve the needs of people in motion," explain the twins. This pragmatic approach is underpinned by a consistent design philosophy. WANT's designs are rarely meddled with, returning season after season in new colours and materials - but remaining fundamentally unchanged. It's an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach that has made the brand a favourite with the jet set.
This new capsule reimagines six of WANT's classic, fuss-free designs - three bags, plus three smaller pieces - in a nautically inspired colour scheme that's just perfect for sunny climes. Click through the gallery, above, to see the collection in detail.
