Hot on the heels of Paul Smith, Oliver Spencer has transformed his signature style into a capsule wardrobe in a collaboration with Mr Porter. The collection is based around the idea of a summer break in Paris. Incorporating both smart and casual pieces, this range will take you from the shops to the chicest of restaurants.
The wardrobe is made up of 13 items. Shorts, t-shirts and a relaxed summer bomber jacket occupy the informal end of the spectrum, providing a classic take on casualwear, whilst trousers, shirts and blazers leave nothing to be desired when the time comes to dress yourself up. A collarless shirt, unstructured jackets and the casual jean-like cut of the trousers helps to bridge the gap between smart and casual – allowing almost any combination of pieces to work together, and making your wardrobe as efficient as possible.
Spencer works in neutral tones: stone, white, blue and navy. Stripes of all sizes are present – from thick horizontal bands adorning a bold t-shirt to a fine pinstripe on the jacket and shorts – reinforcing the season’s traditional nautical influences, whilst the odd coloured piece (such as the striking red shorts) lets the wearer make a statement if they so choose.
True to its inspiration, Oliver Spencer’s collaboration with Mr Porter is an ideal selection for a city break. Neutral, summery, light, and maintaining a balance between smart styling and street casual, it provides a comprehensive range of options for any situation in which you find yourself – perfect for creating an efficient and versatile summer holiday wardrobe.
