Martine Rose, your fave our fave everyone’s fave, recently produced a typically excellent collaboration with Nike. A super powerful reinterpretation of the Nike Air Monarch (a size 18 upper fitted to size 9 tooling), plus a capsule collection of tracksuits and football jerseys made up the collab, and they were all launched by real people on Craigslist.
In keeping with her DTE community approach, Martine selected local champions to dish the details on her proportion-play pieces. There was Steve (who helped her pull of her fashion week show in a cul-de-sac, mad sneaker head Tesfa, and ultimate cutie Suraya who races ferrets.
But, if like me you weren’t able to meet up with one of these legends IRL to cop, then you’ll be glad to know the collection has just got an official Australian release date — at Sneakerboy on Jan 12, 2019.
