MR PORTER and the US brand Theory go way back. If we could type that crossed fingers emoji to denote how “tight” we are, we would. But we are a very serious publication, so we will leave that for the WhatsApp stream. 

To be more specific, our first dalliance with the New York design behemoth was back in 2014 when it designed a collection of modern essentials just for us. Since Theory’s arrival on our site, the relationship has gone from strength to strength, and it has been an easy one to maintain. You see, not only are we a fan of the modern, easy staples that it bases its brand on. We also like the fact that it is partial to making things just for us. We like an exclusive capsule collection here at MR PORTER. We’re selfish like that. Well, not entirely selfish, because we would very much like to share these clothes with you.

Which brings us onto some rather relevant news. Because, as of today, we are happy to announce the arrival of a new collaboration with Theory, in the shape of a pre-SS19 capsule collection. 

This exclusive collaboration was set up to promote the Theory ethos, displayed through the brand’s modernised classics, which integrate a more considered approach to essential menswear styles for urban commute and work and highlight technical sport apparel details. Theory focuses on modern fabrics, premium mills, construction details with laser cutting, seam bonding and other technical functionality in unexpected ways.

We like to think that these new pieces will slip seamlessly into the wardrobe of any modern professional who knows how to relax at the weekend. In mostly subdued hues, they should work with many things you already own, and pieces you are yet to. And, as if to prove how versatile they are, we took the clothes out for a bit of a road test – with some other pieces from MR PORTER for good measure.
