Shop these six new Japanese labels on MrPorter.com today
Mr Porter x Beams
If you plan trips to Japan solely to scout out the latest labels there, take notes on these six new brands that will hit MrPorter.com later in the day. In collaboration with lifestyle company Beams, Mr Porter will be launching capsule collections from these Japanese designers for your shopping convenience and pleasure.
Achieved through Japanese craft techniques and quality construction, labels Aloye, Kics Document, Marvy Jamoke, orSlow, SasquatchFabrix and Teätora offer up an edit of contemporary casualwear for the modern label-conscious gent. And by that, we mean an awareness and knowledge of provenance, of course.
Discover the selection of denim, sportswear tailoring and suit seperates below:
1. MARVY JAMOKE
Known for: Fusing unconventional fabrics with classic tailoring
What to shop: Utilitarian all-weather Macks and trousers with velcro adjustable waistbands. Show off the detailing or work it to your advantage on the unfortunate fat day. Brilliant.
2. KICS DOCUMENT
Known for: Craftsmanship and construction for top-notch quality shirting
What to shop: Cotton button-downs with adjustable hems. Put your stamp on the classic shirt-chinos combi by styling it differently — pulling on the shoelace drawstring will blouse the material over trousers.
Known for: Incoporating Japanese detailing on streetwear garments
What to shop: The denim shirt with a unique Yukata collar, midi sleeved crewneck and the multi-purpose shirt-jacket with cinched, elasticated sleeves. Mileage alert on the last one.
Known for: Designing a travel wardrobe
What to shop: Nylon notch lapel jacket, nylon trackpants and fuss-free tees — life savers when it comes to last-minute packing. And, beyond that, sportswear tailoring with provenance to back up its trendy aesthetic.
Known for: A cut-and-sew technique and aesthetic
What to shop: Short and long sleeved crew necks with contrasting detailing. The polka dot pockets and window pane panelling make a great case for reconsidering the plain white tee.
Known for: Denim, denim and more denim
What to shop: The Breton top with denim and patterned patchwork, denim button-down with curved placket and, of course, the essential denim jacket.
