Mr Porter opens first Kingsman shop
Mr Porter has teamed up with Marv and Twentieth Century Fox to open the first Kingsman Shop to celebrate the launch of Mr Porter’s second Kingsman “costume to collection” line and mark the upcoming global release of the Kingsman: The Golden Circle film.
Due to open to the public on 8 September, the shop is situated next to the 300–year-old wine merchant Berry Bros. & Rudd in the heart of London’s St James’s.
The standalone shop at Berry Bros. & Rudd plays an integral part within the plot of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which means not only will customers and fans be able to shop the collection in a physical retail space, they will also be able to enter an authentic Kingsman location, plucked straight from the new film.
Accessories from the Kingsman collection will be available for purchase in-store, while ready-to-wear items such as the double-breasted suits worn by the Kingsman will be available to try on, with transactions made in-store via Mrporter.com.
Items available in the shop will include ties and pocket squares by Drake’s, opticals and sunglasses by Cutler and Gross, cufflinks and keyrings by Deakin & Francis, Kingsman fragrance by The Perfumer’s Story, notebooks by Smythson, socks by Corgi, umbrellas by Swaine Adeney Brigg, pens by Conway Stewart and the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Kingsman Special Edition watch.
Additional Kingsman “costume to collection” pieces on-display and available for purchase on Mrporter.com will include suits, Western blazers and shearling coats by Kingsman, shirts by Turnbull & Asser, shoes by George Cleverley, jackets by Mackintosh, glass decanter sets by Higgs & Crick, and headphones by Bowers & Wilkins.
Other products will include varsity jackets by Golden Bear, Western boots by Lucchese, gilets by Rocky Mountain Featherbed, track tops and trousers by Todd Snyder, sneakers by Adidas, boots by Hunter, denim pieces by Jean Shop and leather outerwear by Mister Freedom.
These will all be available for next-day delivery in the UK.
Toby Bateman, Mr Porter managing director, said: “We are thrilled to be opening our first ever transactional shop with Kingsman, to celebrate our ongoing partnership and to mark the September release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The costume to collection range remains one of the most unique and pioneering unions of fashion and film, and this shop is just another innovative milestone for the partnership, and for Mr Porter as a whole.”
This second “costume to collection” range of Kingsman, launching globally on MR PORTER on 7 September, is an ongoing partnership between Mr Porter, Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn, and award-wining costume designer Arianne Phillips.
Vaughn added: “Kingsman has been the perfect opportunity for us to create our own label inspired by both Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. After the first film, we were successful in launching a new luxury brand that translated directly from the screen, and had relevance and resonance in both the fashion and film industries. And now we get to take that experience a step further in opening the Kingsman Shop, and bringing the film’s setting to life for customers and fans alike.”
