MR PORTER, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, and acclaimed filmmaker Matthew Vaughn are pleased to announce a new “costume to collection” collaboration from luxury menswear label, Kingsman. Titled “Rocketman by Kingsman”, the line has been developed with inspiration from the forthcoming musical fantasy film, Rocketman, in theatres this May.
Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy following the uncensored story of Sir Elton John’s life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar. The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) and produced by Vaughn (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and David Furnish (Gnomeo and Juliet, Sherlock Gnomes).
The film, slated for a late-May release from Paramount Pictures, Marv Films and Rocket Pictures, stars actors Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jamie Bell and Tate Donovan.
Since launching in February 2011, MR PORTER has established itself as the award-winning global retail and content destination for men’s style, with an unparalleled product offering from the world’s best menswear and lifestyle brands, including own labels Mr P. and Kingsman.
“Rocketman by Kingsman” is a 16-piece collection which sits under MR PORTER’s in-house tailoring line Kingsman and follows a similar “costume to collection” model as MR PORTER’s previous two capsule collaborations with Vaughn’s films, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The collection is inspired by the wardrobe of character John Reid, played by Richard Madden.
It features two original Kingsman suits and a tuxedo jacket; three shirts, six ties and a pocket square by Kingsman + Turnbull & Asser; and a pair of boots from Kingsman + George Cleverley. The “Rocketman by Kingsman” collection will be available exclusively on MR PORTER here from 29 May onwards.
Rocketman will be in theatres in the UK on 24 May 2019 and in the US on 31 May.
