“Following the success of the ‘Made in California’ and ‘Vive La France’ capsule collections, we set out to pay tribute to another capital for men’s style: Japan. It’s a country we travel to seasonally and one that we are consistently inspired and refreshed by when exploring new voices and fresh approaches to menswear. Bringing together this caliber of designers under one capsule represents a remarkable opportunity to spotlight such talent to our global customer.”Mr. Daniel Todd, Buyer, MR PORTER
