Inspired by Savile Row Tradition
Inspired by the film Kingsman: The Secret Service, MR PORTER.COM has joined with Matthew Vaughn to create a new menswear label, Kingsman. It’s a beautiful, luxurious menswear collection of 60 pieces, all bespoke and featured throughout the film. The creative team included Ms Arianne Phillips, the award-winning costume designer, who worked closely with MR PORTER.COM and Matthew Vaughn creating designs inspired by the wonderful Savile Row tradition so very much loved by The Man Has Style. The collection is made by some of the best in British production including Cutler and Gross eyewear; Drake’s ties and pocket squares; Corgi knitwear; George Cleverley footwear; Mackintosh outerwear; Swaine Adeney Brigg accessories and Turnbull & Asser shirting. And those Bremont watches, well what can I say? Absolutely beautiful.
I was thrilled to see the collection covers suiting, outerwear, shirting, knitwear and accessories, all made from the best of British cloth and from the best of British craftsmanship. Each piece on its own is a delight.
“We are pleased to have worked closely with Mr Matthew Vaughn and Ms Arianne Phillips to bring the look and sartorial styling of Kingsman: The Secret Service to life in a full collection. For decades iconic films have inspired designers and consumers and we felt that the gentlemanly style worn in the film will resonate well with our customers.” Mr Toby Bateman, Buying Director, MR PORTER.
The Kingsman Presentation
This past week during London Collections: Men, MR PORTER.COM, hosted an evening presentation showing the 60-piece Kingsman collection over ten looks at The Huntsman shop in Savile Row. The setting was perfect for the collection, with scenes from the film having been taken at this location.

So, when do we all get to see Kingsman: The Secret Service? The film will be released globally on February 13, 2015. I know I am waiting in anticipation for this film and have watched the trailers many times. One of my favourite actors, Colin Firth is sure to bring all his talent to this role. I can’t wait to see it!
