In Martine Rose's world, everyone is welcome. The designer's latest collection for the Spring/Summer 2023 season showcases the coolness of cosmopolitanism.
What continuously stands out about Rose's design prowess is her commitment to exemplifying the intersectional life experience. Whether it be a street-focused skate identity or one that adores the timelessness of tailoring, her designs champion diverging personalities and that is where true magic is made. "You know, I’m just interested in loads of different types of people," said Rose to Vogue Runway. "And it’s always the people on the edges and in the corners and in the shadows that I want to hang out with."
This time around, the designer's collection represents a blissful hodge-podge of casual refinement. Jackets feature the brand's usual emphasis on oversized silhouettes via beige and gray plaid overcoats, in addition to more casual staples like silk bombers and nylon shells. Even when it comes to the aforementioned casual pieces, the garments hug the torso for an interesting play on proportionality. However, her reinvention of blended style does not stop there. Trench coats are paired with tracksuits and silk dresses, while a camel-colored suit gets a taste of vibrancy with a cheetah-print shirt and blood-red shoes.
Other standout looks in the collection include black waxed jeans paired with a charcoal, black and white retro style anorak, a slightly iridescent dirty dandelion button-down shirt with exaggerated shoulders and a gold silk top with ruffled detailing. Whether the garments center athletic, motorsport or tailored dress notes, it is clear that Rose's latest collection has a clear grip on wearability due to its embracement of multidimensional style.
Finishing off the collection is the debut of a new Nike collaboration. Appearing in black and white, the runway show unveiled the forthcoming Martine Rose x Nike Shox silhouette. Dubbed the Nike Shox MR4, the shoes feature an angular toe bed, open back and the signature Shox cushioning system. Stay tuned for official detailed images of the unique collaboration.
