Porsche Design presents its first menâ€™s fashion range. Stuttgart/Milan. On June 26, 2006, during the Milan Fashion Week, Porsche Design presents their first menâ€™s collection for spring/summer 2007. Exclusive licenced partnerships include renowned companies such as: Belfe for fashion sportswear and outerwear, Ferragamo for shoes and leather goods, Mantero for ties and silk accessories and MÃ¼ller & Meirer for â€˜Soft Luggageâ€™.
The Porsche Design Collection blends a unique, sophisticated deconstructed formal style with casual chic utilizing precious materials, innovative technological finishing and exquisite workmanship. The essence of Porsche Design crosses over all components of the collection from clothing to accessories with functional details, materials and micro-patterns inspired by the world of high-tech. These distinctive design motifs are found on ultra-soft leather for sport jackets as well as accessories and details on garments made with precious fabrics. Moreover these micro-patterns are translated into fine silk for ties, linings for jackets, pants and accessories.
The combination of natural fibres and innovative technical surfaces such as metallic finished linings, create a functional yet modern impression. Rubber coated fabrics and heat-sealed, fused finishing for jackets create a waterproof effect combined with an ergonomic fit. Rubber is also present as a distinctive element on minimal logo tags and printed designs on t-shirts and sweaters.
