One Step Ahead

MR PORTER PRI­VATE DIN­NER

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

Like pre­cious ob­jets d’art, eight ex­clu­sive cap­sule col­lec­tions of men’s shoes cre­ated for Mr Porter’s new cam­paign, The World’s Best Shoes, were dis­played un­der glass and spot­lights at the on­line re­tailer’s pri­vate din­ner. And they’re just the tip of the iceberg—the author­ity on men’s style now boasts an ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of 90 footwear de­sign­ers across 13 cat­e­gories. Mr Porter trans­formed a Chai Wan stu­dio into a chic din­ing space and treated 60 of Hong Kong’s well-heeled gen­tle­men to an in­dul­gent menu of con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish com­fort food, cour­tesy of Tom Aikens from The Pawn, to launch the cam­paign. Our per­sonal favourite was the dessert—a heav­enly triple chocolate brownie. No­table guests present in­cluded Mr Porter’s buy­ing and sales di­rec­tor, Toby Bate­man, along with Bran­don Chau, Loui Lim and Feip­ing Chang.
