Mr Porter has launched a new multi-brand capsule collection curated to showcase designers from across a variety of disciplines, each championing their individual craft techniques and skills, in their own unique way.
Dubbed “Art/Craft,” the capsule features 194 pieces from 26 brands including The Elder Statesman, Kapital, Bode, Our Legacy, Missoni, and Gallery Dept.
Upcycled fabrics, recycled/repurposed materials, natural dyes, artist collaborations, and vintage processing have been used by many brands across the capsule collection, to create a range of bespoke, limited-run, and “one of one” items from the likes of Bode, Greg Lauren, Duffy, and Proleta Re Art, among others. Many brands have used a blend of these craft techniques to create truly unique pieces.
Art/Craft also includes a range of men’s fine jewelry, with five new brands added to the growing roster as part of the collection. Each brand has created a range of limited or exclusive pieces, such as a 17ct diamond bracelet from Shay to a gold and locally sourced blue iolite “Trillion” bracelet by Fernando Jorge.
“We are delighted to launch Art/Craft, a curated selection of brands who have created an array of distinct, exclusive pieces through the lens of their unique DNA, just for Mr Porter,” said Sam Kershaw, buying director at Mr Porter. “Each brand was tasked with an open brief to create something truly special to them, and I’m thrilled to see the methods they used to story-tell their pieces. Fine jewellery has a large presence in Art/Craft, an area of rapid growth and focus for us – and I’m excited to provide our global customers with interesting and hard to find brands, who produce products with genuine individuality and longevity.”
