The Martine Rose Spring/Summer 2013 menswear collection makes a splash at London Fashion Week. This 90s-inspired runway show features masked models whose faces are concealed with artful accessory pieces. These alluring masks pay homage to the Baroque marble sculptures of artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

This effortlessly cool collection marks the revival of retro denim looks reminiscent of a rugged grunge aesthetic. Fusing light wash denims, neoprene prints and unconventional materials, the Martine Rose Spring/Summer 2012 collection is a modern take on a past aesthetic.

The stunning menswear line shines a light on over-sized proportions displayed in exaggerated shape jackets and wide-legged pants. Straying far from the traditional, the edgy designer embraces eccentric silhouettes and nostalgic materiality made popular during the 90s.
