Easy springtime style from Mr P.
Created by the team at MR PORTER, Mr P. is a range of clothes and footwear that we ourselves have always wanted: stylish, yet understated; simple, but full of the small touches that matter; affordable, but made to the highest standards. The idea is to make the art of getting dressed that little bit more straightforward, as well as enjoyable. The rest, of course, is up to you.
Take a walk in our shoes
Now that winter’s over, isn’t it time you put a spring in your step? There are few easier ways of introducing a little colour into your outfit than via your feet. Highlights of Mr P.’s new-season footwear range include a new version of our Larry sneaker in mint-green suede, which we’ve styled here with a pair of white and pale pink hoop socks for a double shot of this season’s trend for all things pastel-coloured.
The proof is in the wearing
Mr P. is inspired by the daily lives of real guys. That’s why, every time we release a new collection, we ask a few of them to test it out first.
MR SALEM CHARABI
“Because I live in Copenhagen, there is a climate I have to adapt to; because I work in a workshop, there are practical conditions I have to respond to; and because my life is more than just work, there are other activities I have to attend to. There is always a sense of practicality to what I wear.”
Danish-Egyptian architect Mr Salem Charabi works out of a converted warehouse in Copenhagen’s Freeport, an ex-industrial area to the north of the city. The space allows him to pursue an unconventional, hands-on approach to architecture, one that’s reflected in his utilitarian sense of style.
MR BOB NAGEL
“We play old-school hip-hop, soul, funk… it’s a vibrant, buzzing place, you know? We always wanted to be more of a café than a restaurant. But then we met our chef, and he can cook like crazy. So we started talking about it.”
Mr Bob Nagel is one of the founders of Café Binnenvisser, a buzzing modern bistro and natural wine bar in Amsterdam. This is no desk job. He spends upwards of 12 hours a day on his feet and has to pick his clothes – and his shoes – accordingly.
MR ATEN MOLLY
“I’m really into imperfections. These boots? I’m thinking about how these boots are going to look in about seven years. That’s why I like things like leather and wool. At a certain point they become yours. That’s my kind of style.” Mr Aten Molly lives a life of quiet solitude in central Amsterdam, spending his days reading and pursuing a passion for painting. He values authenticity above all else, choosing clothes that age well and develop a unique character over the years.
