MR PORTER, the online destination for men’s style, announces the launch of its Made with Craft campaign featuring a curated edit of seasonal products and exclusive capsule collections celebrating craftsmanship and artisanal skills. 

Debuting from 8 April, exclusive styles are available from nine global brands who are championing handmade qualities within its products, each providing their own unique point-of-view, craftsmanship sensibility or manufacturing technique that sets it apart. Brands include: A Kind of Guise, Corridor, Kardo, Kartik Research, Jacques Marie Mage, Story Mfg., Stòffa, SSAM and The Elder Statesman. 

Comprising more than 70 exclusives styles spanning ready-to-wear, accessories, jewellery and homeware, the unique and distinct products champion artisan skills such as embroidery and embellishment alongside handwoven and dyed fabrications and hand-selected materials.

Notably within the curated edit of capsules, are 16 styles from Jacques Marie Mage, including seven limited-edition spectacles and nine jewellery pieces from its The Last Frontier collection which MR PORTER is the exclusive online retail partner for. Acclaimed for its unparalleled craftmanship and artistry, the eyewear is handmade in Japan and Italy and features intricate, hand-beaded temple sleeves. New to the brand, the limited-edition hand-crafted jewellery, featuring bracelets, rings and pendant necklaces, honours the rich history of silversmithing and lapidary arts in the American Southwest with each piece taking over 18 months to complete.

Further highlights include an 11 and nine-piece exclusive capsule collection from casualwear brands Kartik Research and Kardo, both use heritage craft techniques with a focus on hand embroidery, embellishment and dyeing across camp-collar shirts, drawstring shorts, pleated trousers and boxy jackets. A bright 15-piece exclusive capsule from The Elder Statesman features knitwear, hoodies and overshirts crafted locally from handloomed cashmere in Los Angeles alongside a range of homeware items featuring two striped cashmere blankets and a playful edit of stuffed animal toys: a whale, octopus and fish – each animal is handcrafted from deadstock cashmere.

“We are very proud to partner with some of our favourite brands to present a curated selection of products that champion our commitment to craftsmanship. The Made with Craft campaign celebrates artisanal techniques and the sense of creating with character, provenance and purpose which we know our customers value.” – Mr Daniel Todd, Buying Director at MR PORTER

Each item will sit within MR PORTER’s Consciously Crafted edit, a curated assortment of brands and products championing craft, local communities, responsible manufacturing and sustainable materials.
