Martine Rose is proud to present her S/S13 collection as part of LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN
Drawing inspiration from a large Baroque Marble sculpture by Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. ‘The rape of Persephone’ is a work of unspeakable beauty that demonstrates realistic soft looking flesh but in actual fact appears to completely defy the hard marble material in which it is made. The sculpture drew a fascination towards hands, a theme throughout the collection, which sees bold neoprene prints bonded to beautiful fabrics in pure Martine Rose style.
Martine Rose plays with proportion and size throughout the collection. Bleached Denim is oversized and altered to fit the wearer underpinning the street wear uniform the brand has become renowned for.
Orange and Blue show strength in the colour palette and the indentity of the wearer is explored in embroidered masks.
