You may have seen Martine Rose's shirts before in Liberty or on Oki-ni.com, they're the ones with the large circular quilted insert. Well, she has just teamed up with Timberland and the magazine Wallpaper* to create a next-generation fashion article for Spring/ Summer 2011. This collaboration encapsulates Timberland’s creative brief to support and nurture established as well as emerging talent globally.
Martine Rose brings an intelligent fusion of classic tailoring and sportswear influences to the relationship. With refined fabrication and acute attention to detail, Rose is able to fuse Timberland’s unique, high-tech, Bi-Colour Nail-Head Micro Canvas that debuts in this project with a shell of Ultra Light Mini Ripstop. Rose’s inventive approach to design makes her a perfect partner for Timberland and Wallpaper*, which both pride themselves on championing original concepts whilst referencing the past.
