James Perse x MR PORTER tee

Say the words 'James Perse' and I become Pavlov's dog, instantly relaxed and salivating for warmer days, calm, neutral colors, and southern California sunsets.


James Perse x MR PORTER tee

Over the past few years, Perse has become one of my favorite designers and my go-to for casual, sophisticated, and simple comfort. Every time I slip on one his t-shirts, made from soft cotton-jersey, I immediately feel less stressed. It's no coincidence, then, that I tend to reserve my James Perse wearing for weekends and vacations.  

I'll be wearing this particular t-shirt, available exclusively through MR PORTER, on rotation all summer. It's a not-too-dark, not-too-light blue and feels like a cloud.
