Martine Rose has teamed up with Machine-A and Ditto to release a new zine: Don Pedro, releasing alongside Martine's new collection.
The zine focuses on the influences that inspired Martine Rose's AW17 collection. She showed in Tottenham, where she has been based for the last 10 years, in the indoor columbian market Seven Sisters, a market shaped by immigrant culture, but also a place where you can find workers of all backgrounds; bus drivers, office workers, and bankers. The clash of cultures clicked for Ms. Rose and gave her the idea to take the blue collar style into the world of contemporary tailoring and sportswear.
Don Pedro was produced by Harry Fisher with photos taken by Britt Lloyd, and art direction given by Ditto. The imagery is done collage style, balanced out with quotes from a conversation had with Martine Rose, which has been broken up and spread throughout the zine.
