Wooyoungmi Partners with Mr Porter on a Capsule Collection

  • Carolyn Meers

Mr Porter has partnered with Wooyoungmi, an edgy South Korean menswear brand, on a collection of eight minimalist pieces that each has a unique twist on a basic. Known for its finely tailored designs, Wooyoungmi has based the pieces on its principles of offering simple garments that are cut to flawlessly fit and enhance the form. An unstructured navy jersey blazer ($655), for instance, softly drapes on the body yet fits neatly through the waist and shoulders, and is defined by peak lapels.

At the core of the collection are landscapes by the artist Kyung Woo Han that are printed on T-shirts ($200) and cotton collared shirts ($350). The collection is focused on a palette of mossy green, navy, and crisp white. The pieces are made primarily from lightweight fabrics such as cotton and linen, though the sneakers ($505) boast more exotic materials. Made with leather, suede, and purple or turquoise snakeskin, they can serve as a statement-making accent when paired with a suit or casual day wear. Other designs include a document holder paneled in green, white, and navy ($370) and a leather-trimmed tote bag made from denim and white-striped canvas ($260). The Wooyoungmi collection will be available from Mr Porter through the fall season. (877.535.3677, www.mrporter.com)
