Fashion label Ports 1961 is looking for a few good men
Since taking over for sister, Tia, designer Fiona Cibani has been leading Ports 1961 into tons of new territory: first Pre-Fall presentation, first Parisian flagship opening in Spring 2011 and now the first men's collection (apparel and accessories!) will show at Fall 2011 Milan Fashion Week.
I hope this venture will feature some of the women's line's signature structure, drape and varied cultural influences (a different international "port" is the inspiration each season)
These looks from the recent Pre-Fall collection show heavy menswear and suiting influence and might be a preview of things to come
(that waffle knit is gonna make scarves and cardigans that men will want to layer)
