When the entire collection features spread collar white shirts underneath jackets and sweaters while sitting over mock necks and turtle necks, the thoughts that come to mind were prep school and after work street wear. Having the backpacks and various tote bags did help that cause. Though not everyone wears a backpack anymore, it’s now about the messenger and the tote bag that is around the arm and not the back. The preparatory school and street wear look was the highlighted in a collection of suits and overcoats on top of hooded sweatshirts of various fabrics and colors. Grays and purples were the two main colors on display being used in items such as full length coats and with zippers on the bags. Velvet also had a shine in the collection as a black crew neck sweater with besom zipper pockets. There was also a unique but understated item in the show, a gray charcoal two piece suit. What made it a little different from the rest of the suits is that it had no jacket pockets. Instead there were two suit style flap pockets on the hips of the pants giving the suit a modern cargo style look. The collection was otherwise filled with overcoats, raincoats and the in-between hooded rain cape that was worn over a double breasted suit. The colors that really stood out were the purples and the burgundies. Those are subtle dark colors but they are noticeable because they are not your basic grays, blues, and blacks. They are a dark version of red which is a very bright and outspoken color. The burgundy coat that stood out was a leather high street coat with fur lapels, collar, and inner lining accented by wrist epaulets. Being preppy and modern at the same time is a good thing. You can go and fit in anywhere and nobody can say anything negative because you’re in style no matter the situation. That’s what the Ports 1961 collection is all about, being comfortable and stylish in any and every situation.
