Martine Rose celebrates her neighbourhood with new zine

Don Pedro showcases the AW17 collection shot around Tottenham, where she has lived for the past decade

Menswear designer Martine Rose has long celebrated areas beyond the traditional fashion week locations around central London.

For the recent SS18 show, Rose brought attendees to the Stronghold Climbing Centre in Tottenham – Rose’s neighbourhood for the past decade. The season before (AW17), she took over an indoor market in Seven Sisters, where the models – who were dressed like subversive bankers and bus drivers – walked among the stalls.

As a continuation of the AW17 collection, a new zine has been created – entitled Don Pedro – by London boutique Machine-A and Ditto to further celebrate the area that Rose loves. The images in the zine are shot by photographer Britt Lloyd, styled by Kate Iorga and produced by Harry Fisher and show models in the silk shirts, oversized trousers from the AW17 collection teamed with footwear by Nike. Between the images are quotes from the designer on why Tottenham is a constant source of inspiration. 

This isn’t the first time the designer has teamed up with Ditto, they previously worked on Skinhead: An Archive – an exploration of the British subculture and its influence on fashion. Along with the zine, all the fashions from the collection will be launching exclusively at Machine-A on August 8.

Don Pedro is available for pre-order now from Machine-A and Ditto
