ABOUT

With each collection, PORTS 1961 delivers a fresh vision of creativity and modernity infused with its core spirit of honouring classic silhouettes.

Founded by Canadian entrepreneur Luke Tanabe, an unwavering dedication to quality has prevailed the brand’s narrative since the beginning. While importing Japanese silk to the New World, Tanabe developed a cross-cultural perspective that mirrored the sweeping social changes of the ‘60s. Reflecting his vision for the
rise of the modern woman, Tanabe expanded PORTS into a luxury womenswear label that would earn global admiration for its precision and ease.

PORTS 196 embraces the independent, free spirited and empowered woman of today.
