The top online destination for men's fashion, MR\u00a0PORTER\u00a0has partnered Italian fashion house Prada for an exclusive clothing collection rooted in bowling nostalgia. We\u2019re talking striped shirts, gingham checks, cap-toe sneakers and more. Available now, the 32-piece collection draws from the fashion of the 1950s through to the 80s, which is apparently the high-point of bowling's popularity. I\u2019d argue The Big Lebowski was partially responsible for a 90\u2019s comeback. Also the increased demand for delicious White Russians.\r\n\r\nThe collection features camp-collar shirts in Hawaiian and cartoon prints, plus madras checks. Mid-century-style block-panelled stripe cardigans and stripe knit T-shirts and blouson jackets in satin and suede for the colder weather.\r\n\r\nThere are two printed T-shirts with exclusive Prada bowling logos, both referencing the eras of inspiration. Pleated and flat-front trousers, polo shirts and a mohair bi-colour wool blazer complete the ready-to-wear offerings. Loafers, creeper and cap-toe Derbies and cap-toe sneakers in nubuck and deerskin round-out the collection.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe bowling-inspired capsule is the first time Prada has partnered with an online retailer for menswear. Discussing the exclusive collection, MR\u00a0PORTER\u2019s Managing Director Toby Bateman says the collaboration was a natural fit. \u201cWe are incredibly proud to be working with Prada on this special project and to be the first men\u2019s online retailer to partner on an exclusive collection."\r\n\r\n"The retro themes of the 1950s and 1980s menswear were an effortless inspiration for the campaign and content, and allowed us to easily meld the worlds of MR\u00a0PORTER and Prada.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe bowling-inspired collection from Prada is available now exclusively through MR\u00a0PORTER. Earlier this month, MR\u00a0PORTER\u00a0detailed its nautically-inspired collection name-dropping Jacques Cousteau and President John F Kennedy.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
