Mr Porter has teamed up with Japanese retailer Beams on a capsule collection featuring six Japanese brands whose clothes are rare in the UK.
Now available from Mr Porter, the collection features garments by Orslow, Sasquatchfabrix, Aloye, Kics Document, Marvy Jamoke and Teatora.
Orslow is a denim brand designed by Ishiro Nakatsu. Its name refers to its alternative approach to fast-paced fashion, in which it uses carefully considered production processes to create garments that stand the test of time.
Sasquatchfabrix by Daisuke Yokoyama is influenced by 1990s skate and graffiti culture. It mixes avant-garde design with traditional Japanese aesthetics.
Teatora by Daisuke Kamide uses technical materials to create pieces designed for comfort and function that are suitable for the travelling urbanite.
Marvy Jamoke, “marvellous bad guy” in Japanese, is designed by Masahide Miyazawa. The brand blends tailoring elements with high-tech fabrics.
Shirt brand Kics Document makes all of its pieces made using traditional Japanese craft methods, working closely with a factory in Kumamoto.
Founded in 2011, Aloye is a Tokyo-based brand led by three graphic designers. Its T-shirts feature a mix of light colours and carefully considered patterns.
