There are many words to describe the stylish array of wares you’ll find on MR PORTER’s shelves. If you’re looking for something “maximalist”, say, a silk shirt printed with a rich variety of floral motifs, we’ll point you in the general direction of Gucci or Versace. “Classic”? Well then, we’ll likely usher you towards Canali, Kingsman or Tom Ford’s tailoring departments. Ask for something “easy”, however, something that’ll slot seamlessly into your existing wardrobe and takes, on average, all of two seconds to upgrade whatever it is you’re currently wearing, then there’s one brand that springs to mind: Officine Generale.
Effortlessness is what the Parisian label trades in: wear-anywhere chinos, T-shirts with that love-worn broken-in feel and what might, just possibly, be the best selection of smart-casual shirts you’ll find in one place. It’s not big, but it is clever. And it’s precisely the type of laid-back, no-nonsense stuff you’ll want to wear when the sun starts to shine. For anyone still basking in the afterglow of a glorious bank holiday weekend, then, we’ve hand-picked a trio of pieces from our latest capsule collection with the label that’ll make dressing for summer a breeze.
