Martine Rose takes high fashion outdoors for new menswear collection

Designer’s London men’s fashion week catwalk show staged at climbing wall mixes rambler-wear with rave staples

Martine Rose’s show at London men’s fashion week took place at a climbing wall in Tottenham on Sunday night.

It is testament to the buzz around the 37-year-old designer that the fashion crowd made the trip far out of their central London comfort zone. Rose is one of the most exciting talents in London menswear. Her label dates back to 2007, but after a hiatus she relaunched it on the catwalk in January.

That show was also presented in Tottenham, at Seven Sisters Market. With an 80s take on workwear with silky shirts, Phil Oakley haircuts and tie pins, it was a hit and demonstrated that Rose was one to watch.

She also designs for Balenciaga, a highlight of the Paris schedule. This collection continued on the theme of the everyday but moved the focus from work to leisure. The front row seats were made of crash mats, and the moulded climbing wall with colourful grips formed the backdrop. It was appropriate.

Models, male and female, wore fleeces, cargo shorts, hoodies and wide jeans – outdoorsy clothes given a high fashion edge. The workwear that Rose proposed last season was also featured, with striped shirts, wide-legged trousers and blazers. These came in oversized proportions that changed them from banker-wear to something more suited to the kind of creatives in Rose’s milieu.

“I started to look at subcultures in Toronto, Portland and Sydney – couriers and people doing outdoor sports,” Rose said at a preview of the collection.

She was open about tapping up territory not usually part of the fashion vocabulary. “I was interested in traditionally uncool things like golf,” she said. “It’s the corporate man off duty, like a tech dad.” Of course, a trip to Millets wouldn’t be sufficient here. Rose mixed rambler-wear with rave staples, like cycling shorts and oversized sportswear. This was inspired by the photography of Trevor Hughes, and his pictures of the Toronto cycling and music scene in the 80s and 90s.
