Mr Porter has added Neapolitan tailoring brand Kiton to its website.

The online menswear retailer has debuted 58 pieces from Kiton’s spring/summer ‘20 collection, comprised of 54 ready-to-wear pieces and 4 ties crafted using the house’s time-honored methods. Ranging from smooth suede outerwear to impeccably tailored suits the collection is stitched by hand in the brand’s Naples atelier by Kiton’s team of highly-skilled artisans. The collection retails between $310 and $9,050.

Highlights include turquoise and green unstructured cotton and linen-blend blazers, bomber jackets in supple navy and olive suedes, lightweight linen shirts, a navy micro-puppytooth cashmere suit, and white and brown jeans constructed with the brand’s exclusive Japanese denim.

To celebrate the launch, Kiton and Mr Porter hosted a dinner with Chef Evan Funke of Felix Trattoria in Los Angeles on February 11th for clients and friends of the brand, followed by a Mr Porter x Kiton lead story in the February 20th issue of The Journal.

“Kiton is known the world over for its expertly crafted handstitched wares,” said Sam Kershaw, buying manager at Mr Porter. “As long-time admirers, we are thrilled to offer our customers the finest tailoring from one of the world’s most renowned tailoring houses.”

“We are pleased to partner with Mr Porter on our first foray into e-commerce,” added Antonio de Matteis, CEO of Kiton Group. “From the first meeting, there was an immediate appreciation and understanding of our brand’s unique identity, which is reflected in the offering. In fact, it includes some of our most special pieces.  We look forward to a long-lasting relationship, and the ability to reach our shared customers around the world.”
