Details: Martine Rose AW12 Collection

If you get past the models faces being disguised with hair and focus on the clothing you would trace airforce/military inspiration. Utility pockets highlight the jacket sleeves just as we saw at Ozwald Boateng (two's a trend). Orange seems to be the stand out color for the collection too and one of the other interesting aspects was the Martine Rose for CAT boots.  I would def buy one of em when they are available for retail if they fall under my £150 price cap for shoes.

'In keeping with the past seasons, Martine Rose’s style forms a revolution, producing streetwear uniform:

Underpinning the collection is the MA-1 flight jacket. Using the stitching details from 2nd World War designs, Martine Rose follows the original specification yet updates the jacket into an iconic piece of streetwear which is instantly recognizable to Martine’s style.

Drawing inspiration from American modernist Man Ray and his most prolific period in which he obsessively collected all kinds of artifacts, Martine Rose adapts the MA-1 jacket with prints, patchworks and resin pin badges recreated from archive photocopies of Martine’s extensive jewellery collection.

Maintaining the innovative use of fabrics and an acute attention to detail that has become a trademark of Martine’s designs, the AW12 collection delivers a cohesive and bold collective of premium garments'.

Will def buy these boots if they fall within my footwear price cap.
