To follow up the upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 collection, London-based designer Martine Rose has teased the fourth installment of her ongoing NAPA by Martine Rose collaboration with Napapijri. For the Spring/Summer 2019 release, Rose has sought to create a “seasonless” collection that can be worn all year round.
Taking influence from the work of photographer Luke Batten, the collection features oversized jackets with balaclava hoods, as well as sports shorts, straight-leg trousers, knitwear and T-shirts. Other reference points include the UK Garage scene — which can be seen in the “NM Martine Rose” logo — as well as art deco upholstery and aerial views of rural landscapes from the American mid-west, both of which appear on knitwear and tracktops.
The collection’s color palette mixes burgundy, purple and forest green with brighter tones including orange, red and yellow. Elsewhere, there is also a range of abstract and classic prints — created using screen and puff printing techniques — which feature alongside Napapijri’s signature sportswear aesthetic. Take a look at the first teaser of the collection above, and expect the full lookbook to drop later this year.
