Like most men, Martyn Bal is a prefers the winter months over a sweaty summer. This is why he’s made his new SS10 collection short and sweet – a capsule collection as opposed to a mammoth range. The collection focuses on lightweight fabrics and draping, featuring leather jackets, shirts with unique detailing and high waisted trousers (think classic movies, not Simon Cowell).
Shot by Richard Stow at Knebworth house, Musician Erik Hassle takes over the modelling reins this season. We’ve not heard of the fellow, but Bal has and said that “He has the steely, tattooed veneer of an east London boy, but underneath, as you’ll hear on record, is an emotional soul.” Which is exactly what we thought when we saw the pictures.
Take a look at the collection after the leap.
