UPDATE (December 7, 2018): Martine Rose’s IG account just announced that the label’s collab with Nike — including tracksuits and a Monarch model — is now available on Craigslist. You can visit the popular classifieds site to see how you can cop the pieces. It does look like you have to email the person who put up the advert first so try your luck out if the collab is something you look forward to having.
Earlier this year, Nike confirmed that Martine Rose, Yoon and Sarah Andelman would be joining the sportswear giant for a trio of collaborative releases. The partnerships signal an important move for Nike, who until now has mostly collaborated with male designers.
Now, more details on Martine Rose’s collaboration have surfaced, confirming speculation that Rose would offer he own interpretation of the Nike Monarch. “We took a silhouette based on a very British tracksuit that you might get in JD Sports,” Rose told Vogue. “Then, we created a trainer inspired by Nike’s Monarch style, which is a very middle-America-dad trainer,” she added.
Vogue also revealed part of the collaboration would be available to buy on Craigslist. Three different Martine Rose supporters – London Steve, photographer Surya, and sneaker-head Tesfa – will act as London-based stockists.
