The worlds of Porter and Timberland unite in a first-time capsule collection
Nylon meets nubuck
Can fabrics be trendy? Especially one as functional as nylon? Well, something in the air has the fashion herd warming up to it this season. See: Prada's latest update on its nylon mainstay and also, Anya Hindmarch and Dior Homme swapping out leather for nylon — which points to the good timing of Porter and Timberland's joint collection.
The two quality brands link arms for a cardinal collaboration that sees both Porter and Timberland hallmarks on all products. The former's three-layer flight satin nylon meets the latter's nubuck leather on 6-inch boots, backpacks and laptop carriers. On the other hand, their colourways pay homage to Porter's Tanker Original series iconic for its navy and olive hues, bred with orange accents.
