OPEN FEATURE

 

 

 

 

 

London-Based designer Martine Rose (and the label that shares her name)

create menswear that reflects the street culture of cities like London

and New York and steals runways in Paris and Milan. Elements pulled

from Rose’s youth in the ultra-baggy 90s rave scene cross-breed with

S&M and the ultra-masculine sportswear of the football casual.

 

 

 

 

Volume, proportion, fabrication, graphics and a brazen approach

to mixing materials in construction all help Martine Rose stand out

among the numerous designers and labels at the convergence point

between streetwear and high fashion. A crossroads that grows more

crowded with every passing season.

 

 

Another in a long line of self-styled “outsiders” who’ve pushed fashion

forward with little concern for broader trends and established norms,

Martine Rose draws inspiration from her position as someone who’s

background and goals seem opposed to those of fashion houses who’s

work seems increasingly stodgy and self serious when held against her

unique creations.
