Signature stealth-wealth label joins forces with luxury online destination Mr Porter. The result rocks our world...
While it isn’t quite the same as running out of milk after the corner shop has closed, there are those occasions in a man’s life when the same day delivery of a pair of Lanvin trousers may come in very handy.
Right on cue, enter Mr Porter, the much-anticipated new male counterpart to the hugely popular Net-A-Porter women’s online designer retailer.
Going live from next week, the site promises to be a haven for designer must-haves, with labels including Gucci,
Ralph Lauren, Lanvin, YSL, Balmain, dunhill, Margaret Howell and Margiela, as well as some unique discoveries from localised brands sourced from all over the world.
Having previewed what the site has to offer, we chose this Bottega belt to illustrate the kind of luxury you can expect to find. Made from chocolate-coloured leather, with an ‘engraved intrecciato’ pattern — a faux woven effect embedded into the surface of the skin — this would be a great way to ease yourself into filling your online basket.
