Porsche Design launched its new AW2019 fashion collection, which is an expression of personal freedom, authenticity, and the courage to perform. Unmistakable driving-inspired accents and dynamic shapes characterize the designs, resulting in relaxed, first-class looks, which effortlessly blur the lines between business and casual outfits.
Materials with a technical look, along with laminated sections, create a fascinating interplay between matte and glossy textures, while graphic elements incorporate vivid contrasts into tonal materials. Vibrant blues add an exciting pop of color to the more base tones of asphalt, black, white, navy, and grey/violet. Elegant dark colors like mahogany, deep shades of green, and petrol complete the color scheme, giving the collection an uber-masculine feel.
For the first time in a Porsche Design collection, a unique highlight by using Porsche seat belt material. This slightly metallic, shiny material featured in Porsche sports cars is a standout element of the collection. It is used as a logo emblem on jacket sleeves, as a striking underlay on pieces, such as the Storm Proof Thermal Bomber Jacket and the Ombre Lightweight Jacket, for creating zip garages, and as a defining detail on multiple styles.
As a key element of the collection, the featured patterns used also draw inspiration largely from Porsche cars. Classic textures, such as Pepita, herringbone, and the popular hounds-tooth car seat pattern, get an urban upgrade with clean, contemporary silhouettes, and technical details. The quilted finish on pieces like the Diamond Quilt Airlift Jacket is also based on the renowned Porsche seats.
This season’s collection also sees the popular TecFlex material taking a leading role. An integral element of numerous designs, it is used as both a stylish accent and a structural pattern. Keeping with tradition, leather also plays an important part in this season’s assortment. Striking embossed textures, motocross-inspired elements, and special details – like a detachable fur collar and logo underlay – add a distinct sense of authenticity and quality to key pieces, such as the TecFlex MotoX Jacket and the aviator-style Leather Bomber Jacket.
In addition to outerwear, the Porsche Design Autumn/Winter Collection includes a full range of accessories, bags, eyewear, footwear, and men’s jewellery. The collection is available worldwide, as of July 2019, in Porsche Design stores and online.
