The new Meltin’Pot collection boasts fine examples of significant product development, the results of sophisticated research, which has always been part of the brand’s DNA.

These accomplished aspects are highly visible not only across the celebrated MP001 Utility Section that has a continuative yet extremely innovative denim soul, developing its iconic appeal through new textures, treatments and colours, but also across the Workshop range, together with a Yacht Master Inspiration.

Original workwear designs are updated and revisited in a more than a vintage attitude: these work inspired jeans recapture the original magic of denim and the “good old days”. The Yacht Master collection is about a way of life with the look of a boyish, new, modern dandy, who moves with style and sophistication in an urban backdrop. A trailblazing pirate type who plays between city streets and exotic spots, he’s a trendsetter in versatile clothes: Jeanswear leads to sartorial experimentation.

The Meltin’Pot woman’s collection is an exclusive and ultra-feminine interpretation of the Meltin’Pot man’s denim world, perfected in fit and washes however for women and infused with cutting fashion edginess – giving an alluring appeal to the women’s collection this spring summer.

The website has a brand new look and feel for SS12, and is full of new season energy. You can tune in to Meltin’Pot from home whenever you feel like it, and with free shipping for a limited period. There is no excuse not to renew your wardrobe with some Meltin’Pot summer spirit.
