Friday 5/22 Edition: Men’s Store Mr Porter Turns Designs For Blockbuster Spy Flick, ‘Kingsman’ Into Real Brand

Men’s Store Mr Porter Turns Designs For Blockbuster Spy Flick, ‘Kingsman’ Into Real Brand
MR PORTER, which was asked to create the on-screen wardrobe for the suave Kingsmen, has released its designs under a comprehensive brand, aptly named Kingsman, of which its second collection is shown below.
MR PORTER's Designs for Blockbuster Spy Film 'Kingsman' Are Now a Real Brand
Taking inspiration from, and the skills of London’s crème de la crème in suitwear — including the world-renowned tailors of Savile Row, shoemakers George Cleverly at Royal Arcade, centuries-old hatter Lock & Co. on St James’s Street, and Royal Warrant-holding shirtmakers Turnbull & Asser on Jermyn Street — Kingsman creates suiting for the modern-day gentleman with a focus on heritage fabrics, such as stone linen, tweed, and Ventile.
MR PORTER's Designs for Blockbuster Spy Film 'Kingsman' Are Now a Real Brand
“It’s built on the same basic principle: the traditional image of the British gentleman, given a 21st-century update. Imagine the members’ Pavilion at Lord’s, or the Stewards’ Enclosure at Henley. It’s the gentleman at leisure, in other words. Building this new collection was all about playing with, but modernising, these archetypes,” says Toby Bateman, Buying Director at MR PORTER.

Friday 5/8 Edition - Hang Your Hat: 1930′s Concrete Reservoir Converted Into Gorgeous Modern Home

Sunday Open House: 1930′s Concrete Reservoir Converted Into Gorgeous Modern Home
The conversion, completed for English visual artist Dinos Chapman and his family, embeds spacious living quarters between the original concrete slabs and columned framework. The structure may not hold 500,000 gallons of water like it used to, but it does maintain its aquatic roots via an ultra-zen 82-foot-long courtyard pool—which conveniently also serves as a lovely light well for a corridor of five bedrooms.
Newly listed for $3.7M, the 7,500-square-foot home includes a 49-foot long open plan living and dining area with a custom kitchen on one end. Brinkworth, the London-based design firm behind the project, also added a large glass pavilion atop the structure for additional living space. The rest of the gated 4-acre lot features a large terrace and garden behind the house, as well as a paddock.
