The Anglo-Jamaican-born designer Martine Rose is known for her unique street cool brand will preview her namesake label's f/w 2023-24 collection in Florence for Pitti Immagine Uomo No. 103 happening on January 10-13, 2023 through a special event in Florence.
“Yet it was evident how all this was closely related to her work, a cognitive and emotional baggage that is mixed with great creative freedom with social and cultural reflections and that is reflected in her collections, where even the most conflicting inspirations and inclinations between them come to a solution, to a provisional coexistence and each time to be reconstructed. Her work is a kind of inverse Canon in short, a very interesting work of and about fashion indeed,” they added.
Martine Rose founded the eponymous brand in London in 2007. Starting with a hyper-curated capsule of shirts, she created an internationally acclaimed, critically appreciated brand. Her innate authenticity and drive for modernity led to the creation of collections with an underground feel but global success. Martine is now considered as one of the most sought-after fashion consultants, capable of influencing the direction of contemporary menswear.
Martine Rose is inspired by her Jamaican-British heritage and deep interest in the music and multicultural diversity of the London scene. Family and community are at the center of her thinking, also expressed in her choice of runway locations: from the covered markets of Tottenham to an alleyway in the Camden neighborhood to Torriano Elementary School.
Martine Rose's brand is sold in some of the world's most prestigious stores, such as 10 Corso Como Seoul, Antonioli, Dover Street Market NY, Dover Street Market LA, Dover Street Market Ginza, GR8, The Four Eyed, Joyce, KM20, LN-CC, Machine-A, MatchesFashion.com, Mr. Porter, Slam Jam Ferrara, Slam Jam Milano, and Ssense.
Three years before, in 2019, Martine Rose participated in the Get Up, Stand Up Now exhibition at Somerset House in London, a celebration of 50 years of British black creativity. In the same year, she was nominated for the BFC's Menswear Designer of the Year and Urban Lux Award. She was also nominated for the British Menswear Designer of the Year award by the British Fashion Council in 2018 and in 2017, when she was shortlisted for the LVMH award and nominated for the ANDAM award for emerging designers.
