My Life, Styled with MR PORTER
There are a number of things I love about MR PORTER : their campaign visuals for the Prada collaboration, their MR PORTER Post newspaper, their branding, social media presence, online editorials – the list goes on. However, what makes the brand really stand out for me is that it’s a true, all encompassing style destination. Covering menswear, accessories, homeware, tech and grooming it’s a one stop shop for all of my lifestyle requirements.
The MR PORTER selection of designer brands is vast but at the same time considered. Alongside high end fashion houses such as Prada, Gucci and Burberry sit contemporary classics such as Common Projects, AMI Paris, Norse Projects and many more.
No matter what your style, MR PORTER have you covered. I’ve chosen a selection of products from the MR PORTER catalogue that cover the bases and I challenge you to do the same. Find my selections below.
Mr P Merino Wool Roll Neck Sweater
Having been around for generations, the roll neck (polo neck, turtle neck – whatever you’d like to call it) is a wardrobe classic, and it’s hardly surprising. It goes with just about everything and instantly elevates your look to one of effortless sophistication.
This particular roll neck has been knitted in Italy from soft 12-gauge merino wool and finished with ottoman-detailed ribbed trims. Perfect for the chillier days of Autumn / Winter.

Mr P Garment-Dyed Cotton Twill Chinos
With a straight leg and medium rise these cotton twill chinos have a laundered finish, meaning there’s no stiff wearing-in period. They’re extremely comfortable and the material feels sturdy but soft to the touch from the off.
Unfortunately the navy version pictured is now sold out but they are still available in sand.

Founded in Melbourne in the late 80’s they’ve successfully have created a fantastic range of skin and haircare products using the best of both nature and science. Their branding adds a touch of understated luxury to any room, their products are fantastic and their store interiors have been photographed for every design blog going.

Le Labo Eau de Parfum Discovery Set
A few months back I was kindly gifted a Le Labo Santal 36 Scented Candle and it blew me away. Ever since then I’ve been dying to try their scents in the form of an eau de parfum. But how do you choose your favourite scent without a store nearby? Simple – you get the discovery set.
I’m looking forward to trying each of the sample scents over the coming weeks / months so if you’re interested in my thoughts on each keep an eye out for my Instagram stories.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 Bluetooth Speaker
It’s impossible to talk about audio products without mentioning Danish powerhouse Bang & Olufsen. As Wired once said, they provide “quality media delivery via striking objects”.
The BeoPlay A1 portable bluetooth speakers lives up to B&O’s reputation for delivering high fidelity products with classic Danish design. With 24 hour playback on one charge, the beautifully designed A1 packs a punch well beyond it’s weight and dimensions.
