And suddenly BOOM, London Fashion Week (men’s version) is here and with it, as always, the most avant-garde and different proposals of the fashion month. One of the first to catch our attention is that of British designer Martine Rose, who by the way has returned to the catwalks for the first time after the pandemic.

If there’s one thing Martine has, it’s that she perfectly represents the archetypal London designer, since everything she creates has to do with her city. But not only that, she also gives men’s fashion the importance it deserves and that many forget it has. Anyway, Rose is back and as she said backstage she really missed doing a show.

This one was held in a dimly lit, tunnel-shaped room, flanked by latex curtains, located inside the arches of Vauxhallen station, which once housed Chariots, one of London’s best known gay saunas. The gasps that sounded in the background were in charge of giving the ok-ready for the models to start parading.

Once they stepped on the catwalk, as we can see in the images, oversize went into the background and gave way to body-hugging garments (in the right measure). And now that we mention the body, it’s true that this collection has a lot to do with desire and debauchery; hence the appearance of open zips, sleeveless dresses and various other details. 

The best of Martine Rose’s spring/summer 23? All the denim, sports jackets and zip-up shell suits.
