Mr Porter has launched a one season pop-up with Celine Homme featuring an exclusive capsule dedicated to the brand’s spring/summer 2021 collection titled “The Dancing Kid.”

The online menswear retailer has debuted 48 pieces from the French luxury brand’s most recent men’s collection – 30 of which are exclusive to Mr Porter and five of which have an exclusivity window from now to the end of the year. Standout pieces from the collection include the black mirrored joggers, the acid-washed denim trucker jacket with appliqué patches, the black and white Baja knit poncho, the oversized T-shirt with “The Dancing Kid” logo, and the palm tree print camp-collar silk shirt. Retail prices range from $125 to $2,850.

“The Dancing Kid”, inspired by E-boys, current skate culture, and new adolescent codes of dress and creativity, is a candid portrait of a generation that has taken advantage of confinement and isolation by asserting and emancipating itself through the spontaneity of dance, music, and self-expression. Celine creative director Hedi Slimane invited six artists to participate in the campaign, which has been realized as a group show, along with a new visual language anchored in dance and teen romance.

Mr Porter will celebrate the launch of the exclusive pop-up with a global digital campaign beginning late November, along with dedicated editorial and social content brought to life across its global editorial platforms, including the online magazine The Journal and its Instagram channel.
