Twenty-five quality Italian brands come together as part of Mr Porter’s most recent collection, Italian Masters. The selection includes a wide variety of men’s fashions that celebrate Italian craftsmanship and timelessness. Brands such as Rubinacci, Incotex, and Fornasetti contribute to a collection with a unique, robust look. At one end of the spectrum, you can find simple, almost minimalistic clothing from labels like Valextra and Massimo Alba. On the other hand, brands like Etro and Missoni explore more stylized patterns and colors.
