Mr Porter, the men’s luxury etailer under Yoox Net-a-porter, will release a collaboration with “Argylle,” the latest film from Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman franchise on Jan. 31.
Inspired by the characters in the spy thriller starring Henry Cavill, Dua Lipa, Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston and Bryce Dallas Howard, the 16-piece capsule, with prices ranging from $35 to $2,600, includes a green velvet jacket, black trousers and a matching navy pin-striped jacket and trouser suit inspired by Cavill’s character, Argylle.
It also features two Kingsman + London Undercover umbrellas, two knitwear pieces and five pairs of socks donned in diamond print.
Additionally, Mr Porter will debut two limited-edition timepieces from the Bremont x Argylle watch collection, including The Argylle, based on a traditional Bremont Solo 43, and The Argylle Jet, based on a Bremont U-2.
Vaughn said he was “involved with everything from fabric choices to tailor selection” for this capsule.
“It’s a passion of mine — we love good tailoring and good clothing. People will see something on-screen — as was the case with ‘Top Gun’ and Ray-Ban, ‘American Gigolo’ and Armani, or ‘Pretty Woman’ and Cerruti — and then you run around trying to find what you saw in the movie. That’s why we created this collection — to allow people to have a version of the Argylle clothing,” he added.
Daniel Todd, buying director at Mr Porter, said: “We are very proud of our Kingsman brand, which is now entering its 19th season, and are excited to celebrate the next chapter in Mr Porter’s long-standing partnership with director Vaughn.”
As the latest installment in the Kingsman universe, Argylle is billed as “a razor-witted, reality-bending, globe-encircling spy thriller.“ Hitting cinemas beginning Feb. 1 in the U.K., it follows Howard’s character Elly Conway, author of a series of bestselling espionage novels, and how the plots in her fictional books, which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate, begin to mirror reality.
As a partnership between Mr Porter and Vaughn, the Kingsman label has launched one capsule for every Kingsman title since 2015. The movie franchise was inspired by the Savile Row tailor Huntsman, while the label is more rooted in the sartorial ethos of the street.
In 2019, Mr Porter also introduced a capsule inspired by John Reid, manager and ex-boyfriend of Elton John in honor of “Rocketman,” the biopic about the Britsh singer, where Vaughn served as a producer.
