Martine Rose Spring 2013
Martine Rose knows how to play with fabric and textiles. With a collection rife with denim and neoprene, this avant garde collection was one that really stood out as a power player at the London Collections: Men showcase on Thursday. Models walked down the runway with their faces covered with embellished masks, carrying t-shirts with slogans such as ‘private property created crime’, and neoprene sleeves on denim torsos created a wonderfully nihilistic juxtaposition, where the deconstructed-esque, structural shapes created the look and the aura. Though less wearable than most collections, Martine can most certainly be commended for her creativity and her vision – alongside snake skins and colour blocking, this is one collection that is definitely for those who are more appreciative of the artistic fashion – just like us.
