MRPORTER.COM and COS present The Modern Traveler, a capsule collection for summer 2015. The limited edition 23-piece collection is a complete wardrobe of menswear essentials in seasonal greys, burgundies and hues of deep navy.
“This range sums up the COS brand ethos: to create clean contemporary pieces with a focus on timeless style above seasonal trend. It’s this design-led attitude that resonated with us on a creative level at MR PORTER. We’re proud to collaborate with COS – this simple yet super interesting range deserves a global platform and the MR PORTER customer is the perfect audience.”
Sam Lobban, Senior Buyer, MRPORTER.COM
For the modern man, travelling is a regular part of his professional and personal life. The Modern Traveller collection was created with this philosophy in mind: lightweight, wearable pieces in quality fabrics. The collection facilitates movement and adaptability with its streamlined simplicity and functionality, while remaining true to the contemporary style COS is known for.
“In addition to sharing similar brand values, we feel that MR PORTER is a pioneer in their area of expertise. In this contemporary setting of the ‘information age’ they continue to lead in adapting the latest technology, information sharing and pioneering design-led fashion. For ‘The Modern Traveller’ we wanted to create a collection that reinterpreted function for every occasion – a collection where the tailored suit can take you from a business meeting in NYC to an art gallery opening in the evening.”
Martin Andersson, Head of Menswear Design, COS
Key pieces include the slim-cut tailoring in classic single-breasted styles, available in deep navy and burgundy. The sharp silhouette is also prevalent in the outerwear pieces and shirting; with clean lines and grey tones representative of the stark architectural inspiration behind the collection. The considered clothing teamed with classic footwear and luggage options delivers a well-rounded result; a head-to-toe wardrobe solution for the modern man.
The Modern Traveller Collection will launch on 7th May on MRPORTER.COM, in selected COS stores and cosstores.com .
