The Modern Traveller

The latest in a long line of names to team up with luxury e-tailer Mr Porter is Swedish label Cos, with the brands producing a collaborative collection of menswear essentials for the coming season.

Entitled ‘The Modern Traveller’, the 23-piece line comprises everything the modern man needs for his jet set lifestyle, including shirting, outerwear, footwear, luggage and sharp tailored pieces, across a simple palette of grey, burgundy and deep navy.

The partnership, which came about out of “respect and general fandom” for Cos, according to Mr Porter’s Senior Buyer Sam Lobban, “sums up the COS brand ethos: to create clean contemporary pieces with a focus on timeless style above seasonal trend.”

“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,” Lobban added in a statement.

Key pieces in the line include an aubergine mac, confetti print shorts and a navy blue weekend bag, as well as a selection of patterned short-sleeved shirts – a style that Lobban says the fashion world needs to show “some love” once again.

The Cos x Mr Porter collection arrives at and in select Cos stores on May 7.
