Mr Porter is only five weeks old and already it looks as though he’s going to be a popular guy.
The Web site — which like its older sister Net-a-Porter serves up e-commerce with editorial savvy — has already taken orders from more than 77 countries, selling 1,000 pairs of shoes, a leather jacket for 3,245 pounds, or more than $5,000 at current exchange, and more. The site carries dozens of brands, from Acne and Burberry to Viktor & Rolf and Yves Saint Laurent. So far, its top customer has spent nearly $35,000 on 80 pieces from 26 different brands, including Band of Outsiders, Gucci and Jil Sander.
