London based Martine Rose presents her latest collection from the self-titled line this Spring/Summer 2012 season. The brand’s seventh collection draws inspiration from the 70’s skate scene, revisiting the legendary Dogtown and Z Boys documentary as well as looking at cultural icons from the era like the iconic Zephr team and Kurt Cobain. The fact that Cobain could be seen in dresses and skirts led to Rose’s fabric and silhouette experimentation in the new menswear collection, resulting in fashion forward pieces that still carry a masculine touch. Be sure to check out the full collection and this special short film by Hidden Agency about an imaginary skater who embodies the rebellion, vulnerability, and creativity that was central to Rose’s inspiration and collection.
