MR PORTER Spring/Summer 2013 Favourites

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 2 , Permalink 0

The days are getting longer and longer and it’s almost time to put back in the closet the heavy clothes – well not quite considering the recent low temperatures in the UK – and fill it with new wonderful and summerish clothes.

 Let’s bring back shorts, sandals and sunglasses!!! Light-weight shirts and creamy blazers are a must for the Spring/Summer season, and what’s the best place to get all that?
Well, You can hardly go wrong with MR PORTER and their amazing selection of clothes and while browsing around I found a few nice little things and decided to put together two outfits; the first one is called A Safari Experience as it takes inspiration directly from its name: Lots of beige shades, sandals and a co-ordinated hat to achieve the “Kilimanjaro” explorer look.

 

YMC Leopard Print Bomber Jacket / £195.00: YMC takes a common bomber and spices it with leopard spots, fierce just isn’t the right word to match it. Caramel in tone, this jacket is the perfect outwear for warmer weather conditions, the subtle leopard print is never too much in your face and comes out as an elegant yet quirky combination.

ACNE Seymour Slim-fit Cotton-Twill Shorts / £120.00: The perfect shorts to match the perfect jacket. These shorts are made from a soft material and have a slim-fit cut to suit a very bright personality who’s not afraid to show a bit of leg!

DAN WARD Leather Sandals / £275.00: What kind of holiday vacation would it be if you don’t have a pair of sandals with you? Well, not just any kind of sandals, these Dan Ward Leather sandals are sophisticated and made from the finest leather. Nothing to do with those horrible crocs plastic sandals or some other cheap crap, that’s for sure!

NN.07 Samuel Washed-Cotton Oxford Shirt / £90: The Grandad collar is the very characteristic element to make this shirt special. It’s the right shirt for warmer conditions as the massive collars of some shirts won’t be of any nuisance on this cotton shirt. The baby-blue also will maximize the color effects of your safari-outfit (mainly made of browns) by giving this subtle cool-breeze contrast with the rest.

ACCESSORIES to COMPLETE THE OUTFIT

PAUL SMITH Woven-Paper Trilby Hat £50 / BUY IT HERE

My second outfit was far less chilled, very quirky. Almost something you would see during a fashion event, such as fashion week. Involving mainly a cool color palette that goes from light blue to black, this outfit is not for the light-hearted who are scared to show a bit of creativity in their outfits.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BEEHIVE SHIRT

 

2) ALEXANDER WANG Lightweight Leather Shorts / £590: Leather shorts? If you thought you were edgy enough then think again and consider about getting a pair of these! Made from the finest lambskin leather, these shorts are just a fashion statement ready to be discovered.

3) MASSIMO ALBA Herringbone Linen Blazer / £640: A lightweight blazer to make your outfit even more refined. This relaxed yet elegant piece can be easily worn during daytimes as well as a casual night out with the friends. This blazer is made from a very light material; the summer-proof linen.

5) RAF SIMONS Chain-Trimmed Leather Derby Shoes / £660: As described on Mr Porter “Inspired by youth culture and the LA music scene, Raf Simons‘ chain-trimmed leather Derby shoes put a rebellious spin on the classic style. Team this covetable pair from the Antwerp-based label with navy chinos for a subtly subversive off-duty look”

Well, how can you resist them?
