The PORTS 1961 Pre-Fall 2022 collection redefines luxury with a new energy. It introduces a wardrobe with a rebellious spirit, reexamining the most coveted classics with modern details.
Rooted in a palette of black and navy, vibrant pops of colour add a contemporary touch - emerald green, carmine red, and various shades of plum. Prints adopt an artistic approach, resembling the delicate touch of a painter's hand, as seen in the liquid florals on silk crepe de chine and stretch georgette fabrics.
Tailoring is precise and robust. For instance, a pinstriped suit with elbow slits transforms a classic double-breasted jacket into a cape. The cable knit takes centre stage, appearing in shearling on leather outerwear, laminated in sweaters, cut on the bias with fringe, and panelled in dresses and skirts. Outerwear in eco cashmere combines sustainability with style, featuring pieces like a jean jacket, utility jacket, short peacoat, and cape - all in sharp black cuts.
Boots stand out as the stars of the footwear collection, including slouchy riding boots with a wrap-around strap and chunky platforms. Handbags showcase nuanced details, such as a doctor's bag with flap pockets or crocodile-embossed brown and black stripes. The jewellery line emphasises the brand's marine chain, offering an oversized version in the form of enlarged heavy link bracelets and chokers, while maintaining a sense of possessing a timeless piece.
With this collection, PORTS 1961 continues to explore timelessness in the modern woman's wardrobe by infusing style with unexpected details.
