Founded in 2007, and returning to the runway in 2017, London menswear brand Martine Rose explores the potential of clothing to serve as cultural signifiers. Famed for being ‘offbeat’ yet so ‘in tune’, MR draws inspiration from subverting past motifs, and creating a dizzy aesthetic of volume and proportion.
Luxury italian brand Napapijiri was founded in 1987 and immediately stood out by combining innovative materials with a unique style, resulting in a new take on outdoor apparel that brought to life the now iconic Skidoo and Rainforest pullover anoraks.
In 2017, Napa by Martine Rose was born. Inspired by the 90s fusion of high end fashion and streetwear, a period which urban youth took to catwalk looks and made it their own. Napapijiri’s extensive archive and outerwear expertise allowed MR to update individual iconic pieces with bold block colors that retains their recognisable DNA for both collaborators.
