At long last, the online shopping powerhouse that is The Net-a-Porter group decided to come down to Melbourne (unlucky Sydney) to celebrate Springtime and all things fashion. Now for those who do know me, I've always held Mr Porter in the highest regard and for many years have read, observed and learnt many of the things I know about menswear through their social channels and online articles - so when the Mr Porter team reaches out and asks me to collaborate with them on this event, it's safe to say I was beyond ecstatic!
Needless to say, the event was nothing short of amazing. The dazzling display of the latest in mens and womens fashion, the vast array of bite-sized canapés and zesty cocktails that were on offer, the delightful live band and the beautiful backdrop of the Albert Park all added to the charm of the event. But don't just take my word for it though, have a look for yourselves below.
After putting together a carefully curated list of my favourite fashion finds (which was no mean feat) I chipped away at it until I was left with this delightful ensemble above, I'll be the first to admit that it's a little on the Summery side but hey, let's just roll with it! If you like anything at all, its all avaialble on Mr Porter now. Go on, have a look. If there was ever a season for a wardrobe refresh Spring would be front and centre!
In addition to what was already an outstanding event, Montblanc managed to top the whole thing off by offering a range of personalised notebooks to all who attended. This truly tailored service was an absolute hit, so much so that the line of people waiting for this truly tailored experience snaked around the outskirts of the entire venue! On the plus side, this did free up quite a lot of space to mingle for those of us who got in quick.
Without a doubt, this was one of the best events of the year to date, with one of the best online fashion destinations in the world and I am humbled to have been a part of it all! Next stop Mr Porter and the Races!
