With Paris Fashion Week Men’s getting in full swing, we’ve got an amped-up affection for French fashion. What better time, then, for Mr Porter to launch ‘Vive la France’, an exclusive 147 piece capsule collection celebrating the country’s insouciant style. A host of French casualwear brands have created exclusive pieces for the launch, and we’ve got a particular fancy for this buckle strap Bleu de Chauffe backpack. Made in France using organic vegetal leather, each backpack is signed and dated by the artisan who built it. Now that’s a design language we love.

Something a little tongue in cheek suits us too, and we’ll be stocking up on this design by conceptual British artist Ryan Gander, of a folded t-shirt used as the central print motif. After all, who needs one t-shirt, when you can get two for the same price?
