Martine Rose



Debuting in 2018 but released in early 2019, Martine Rose did a small capsule collection with Nike, which included a multicolored tracksuit and her own pair of Nike’s Monarch sneaker—an outfit that, under normal circumstances, would be befitting of a middle-class American dad. Rose, however, wanted to take “the ordinary and make it extraordinary.” For the collection, she studied basketball player’s bodies and feet, and executed her designs based on how she imagined a basketball player’s tracksuit and sneakers would fit her body. The results are oversized, bulky forms and shapes with bright colors and her uniquely retro feel.


She calls herself “probably the best designer in the world,” and given her work and influence, she’s probably not wrong. Now reaching new heights as one of the world’s menswear leaders in normcore—an aesthetic she’s always brought to her designs, despite the recent trend—Martine Rose and her eponymous label consistently takes the banal and ordinary aspects of the past and remixes them to her one-of-a-kind taste, giving her clothes a thrifty-yet-new, boxy-yet-proportionate style. Raised in South London, she’s influenced by ‘90s rave, reggae, and hip-hop culture, directly importing her lived experiences into her work. By exploring how retro stylings and particular subcultures can be merged with everyday British wardrobe choices like technical jackets, sweatsuits, and white-collar workwear, she’s created an entirely new lane for herself, her brand, and the everyman.


Founds her own namesake label, which starts out as just a men’s shirting brand.
