Ports 1961 Spring/Summer 2016 Collection
Inspired by the tech-savvy traveller

It’s hard to argue that technology has made the world a much smaller place. The invention of airplanes may have made travelling around the globe possible in decades past, but the rise of the Internet and social media, in particular, has all but erased the perception of distance for most of our current generation. Envisioned by newly-appointed creative director Milan Vukmirovic, the Spring/Summer 2016 collection by Ports 1961 was inspired by today’s tech-savvy traveller — the sort of man who “flies from Tokyo to Los Angeles via Paris, Milan, Berlin, Marrakech or Hong Kong” and who “surfs on the surface of the globe thanks to the Internet and social media.”

Intended for those who “follow fashion through blogs as though they were in the front row of a fashion show,” the warm weather range also brings together a myriad of influences from all corners of the globe, resulting in an ethnically-diverse collection of sophisticated sportswear. Of note are design cues taken from surf, military and Japanese style, and expressed throughout the collection via roomy shorts, leather and fabric sandals and sneakers, cashmere tracksuits, translucent trench-coats and soft cotton T-shirts. In short, it’s the perfect wardrobe for the type of man who is as comfortable crossing time zones as he is surfing the Internet from the comfort of his own home.
