British designer Martine Rose launched her first collection in 2007 at the Blacks Club in Soho, London. The debut collection, initially conceived as a men’s shirting label, was comprised of only 10 shirts. From that moment onwards, Martine Rose quickly established herself as a global design talent with recognition of her work gaining plaudits across the industry.
The designer’s bursting talent fostered collaborations with heavyweights such as Wallpaper Magazine, Timberland and CAT Footwear, as well as the opportunity to closely work with some of fashion's brightest stars, including Arena Homme+ editor Max Pearmain, Tyrone Lebon, and Poppy Bartlett.
For FW17, Martine embarked on a new and exciting collaboration with Napapijri where she took inspiration from the brand’s most iconic outerwear jackets. Through this collaboration, Martine built on her long standing relationship with London based creative talent Marfa Journal, who developed and curated the distinctive imagery for the campaign. Set up by Alexandra Gordienko and inspired by the culturally hyperactive Texas town, Marfa is pure burning creative energy packed in paper, and a screaming manifesto of artful insanity.
