The NET-A-PORTER group has announced that MR PORTER, its new online retail style destination for men, will launch tomorrow (22 February). The new destination will provide men with editorial content, international menswear designers such as Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Gucci, Lanvin and Bottega Veneta and specialist brands such as John Lobb, E Tautz and Valextra.
