As originally reported by Vogue Business,
Founded in 2007, Martine Rose’s eponymous label has grown a considerable cult following over the years, often drawing inspiration from a variety of subcultures including hip-hop, rave, and punk. As Martine Rose readies its SS23 collection featuring a heavily-anticipated footwear collaboration with Nike, the label looks to be finally stepping into the limelight after a steady 15-year rise.
Martine Rose was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize back in 2017 and was nominated for the BFC‘s British Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2018 and 2017. Beyond establishing her own label, Rose’s past experiences include assisting Demna Gvasalia in launching Balenciaga menswear as a creative consultant.
As deliberations continue, neither LV nor Martine Rose have yet to respond to the rumors. In the meantime, Louis Vuitton’s next menswear show will arrive in Paris on June 23.
