Martine Rose Spring/Summer 2023 Collection
In the world of Martine Rose, everyone is welcome. The designer’s latest collection for the spring/summer 2023 season highlights the freshness of cosmopolitanism.
What continually emerges from Rose’s design prowess is her commitment to illustrating the experience of intersectional living. Whether it’s a street-focused skate identity or one that adores the timelessness of couture, his designs champion divergent personalities and that’s where the real magic happens. “You know, I’m just interested in lots of different types of people,” Rose told Fashion Show. “And it’s always the people on the edges, in the corners and in the shadows that I want to spend time with.”
This time around, the designer’s collection represents a hodgepodge of laid-back 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, his reinvention of the unisex style doesn’t stop there. Trench coats are paired with silk tracksuits and dresses, while a camel-colored suit gets a taste of vibrancy with a cheetah-print shirt and blood-red shoes.
Other standout looks from the collection include black waxed jeans paired with a charcoal, black and white retro-style anorak, a slightly iridescent dirty dandelion button-up shirt with exaggerated shoulders, and a gold silk top with ruffle detailing. Whether the garments are centered around athletics, motorsports or tailored sartorial notes, it’s clear that Rose’s latest collection has a clear grip on wearability due to its embrace of multi-dimensional style.
Finishing the collection is the start of a new Nike collaboration. Appearing in black and white, the runway unveiled the upcoming Martine Rose x Nike Shox silhouette. Dubbed the Nike Shox MR4, the shoes feature an angled toe bed, an open back and the Shox cushioning system. Stay tuned for detailed official images of the unique collaboration.
