The Mr Porter x Kingsman collaboration is like nothing you've ever experienced
A sartorial service
There's something titillating about the arcane world of espionage. Secrets, lies, venturing into the unknown are tropes that fire up our appetite for adventure; but as much as a spy's narrative is riveting, it is also often unrealistic. Here's how the Kingsman franchise sets itself apart from its predecessors: Unlike the routine portrayal of polished personas that come off as fantasy, it beckons its audience into the quotidian amidst the intriguing action.
And then there's the tie-up with e-tailer Mr Porter, offering both films' costumes to the everyman.
"After watching Risky Business as a teenager, all I wanted was a pair of Wayfarer sunglasses. Then Top Gun came along and it had to be the aviators," explained film director Matthew Vaughn. As mentor Harry Hart and agent-in-training Eggsy return to the big screen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the two menswear doyennes celebrate the sartorial ethos of Kingsman — a razor-sharp yet compelling representation of the modern man's ideal wardrobe, befitting of a storyline brewed underground of London's tailoring ace in hand, Savile Row.
While the full collection of clothing — in collaboration with brands that run the gamut of Turnbull & Asser, Cutler & Gross, Adidas and Golden Bear — from the second movie now retails on MrPorter.com, the partnership also births a physical facet this time around. Even more tangible is the experience of stepping into the new Kingsman brick-and-mortar located in London's St. James, also stocked with the range and outfitted with the film's actual sets. How's that for an induction into the circle?
