Been Trill's latest efforts have come alongside London-based designer Martine Rose, in a highly unexpected departure from the millennial post-Internet imprint's prior offerings. In the past, Rose has placed heavy meditation on London’s early rave scene and skinhead culture, while this new expression can be considered a boiled-down version of the characters she has created in the past. The collection is a far cry from the Been Trill many of us are familiar with, with more matured themes dominating the clothing and the lookbook. Rose sat down with Dazed magazine to talk about the process of working with Been Trill and to discuss her creative output.

How did you approach this collection?

Martine Rose: It was an organic conversation with #BEENTRILL# – we were introduced by Kim Jones, and started speaking about music, and our references and starting points all seemed to be the same. We were looking at the crusty scene, which was a big influence for me for AW14 – that sort of ‘raver in a field’ silhouette. The collection has that feeling about it, but it feels more polished and very sportswear. It’s a sporty crusty ravey type vibe!

How did you approach the lookbook?

Martine Rose: The style is all really new, I haven’t shot images like these before, because it’s outside. Even though the silhouette feels familiar and the fabrications feel familiar, the whole collaboration feels really new. It was street cast and again, this boy is just beautiful – oddly beautiful. He really captured the feeling of the collection, of a slightly grown out skinhead, raver person.
