Ports 1961 introduces its Pre-Fall collection

An off duty, relaxed scene is evoked in the Ports 1961 Pre Fall 17 collection, drawing on domestic objects and the everyday as its inspiration.

The collection melds together the comfort of familiarity in carefree arcadian elements with the modernity of the brand’s signature multi-function pieces.

Felted winter blankets are reworked as outerwear coats while the well known polka dot of oil cloths is reinterpreted as oversized nylon bags. Commonplace still life photographs of seasonal flowers in vases brought from home, appear unexpectedly on crisp poplin shirts.

A fresh perspective can be seen on the recurring theme of stripes, which in turn become familiar checks as they make their way through the collection.

Inviting homespun knitwear, soft textures of brushed wool and double faced cashmere combine with warm hues of currant, caramel and turmeric to evoke a sense of gentle luxury.
