Kissed By A Rose.. Martine Rose FW13
The undoubtedly talented Martine Rose presented her Fall Winter 2013 Collection during the London Collections earlier this week and I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the show. Not knowing what to expect as the queue's leading in snaked around the staircase of The Hospital Club we quickly came to realise that what we were going to watch unravel was more like theatre than just some models displaying Martine Rose's pieces. As they emerged from behind the screen the eclectic models interacted with furniture placed around the installation and finally stepped on to a revolving pedestal giving everyone in the audience time to take the collection in.
For her collection Martine took inspiration from the Rasta community in Jamaica during the time she spent there. Elevation and the status associated with it are prominent amongst the masses but not through riches but through attitude and ideas. Martine has tapped into this state of mind with a collection that features everything from furs to bar towels. Its all about rebellion and the attitude for Martine Rose and her Ghetto Kings
