Martine Rose Menswear Spring/Summer 2013

Martine Rose Menswear Spring/Summer 2013

By João Paulo NUNES, London Editor

[London], June 26, 2012 - For her fourth menswear collection under her eponymous label, Martine Rose has claimed that she found inspiration in Bernini's sculptures, particularly in the large piece 'The Rape of Persephone' housed in Rome's Galleria Borghese.

If, on the surface, the connection between Bernini's marble depiction of Hades/Pluto's disturbingly violent kidnapping of Persephone/Proserpine and Rose's experimental forms may be difficult to discern, the ways in which hands and violent grabbing gestures were subtly introduced into the collection proved to be a triumphant trope. Ultimately, this is an imaginative collection that explores the concepts of touch and texture to develop a playful range of garments.

To start with, the ticket for the show suggested the tactile dimension of Rose's designs for Spring/Summer 2013: a sheet of rigid orange plastic containing information about the show was crudely stitched onto a piece of black neoprene. The actual collection continued this idea of matching textures by juxtaposing cottons with neoprene in a blocking or panelling process that has been popular with contemporary London designers. In addition, stone-washed denim is used profusely throughout the collection, with a particular emphasis on wide and multi-layered pleated trousers and shorts that evoked high street fashions of the late 1980s and more
