BEAUTY: Clothing--Martine Rose

Martine Rose is a bit of an "underground" elusive designer of menswear--I will confess she was not on my radar--who has been showing flowing, voluminous trousers for many seasons now. And with this Fall-Winter '17-'18 collection at London Collections: Men, she continued to champion the wide-legged trouser--I love how it is cinched with a belt in many looks. There were a few trousers sporting a regular, relaxed silhouette, but even then, the detail at the waistband gave the illusion of three pairs of trousers worn at once. All this was shown with proper shirts and ties, accompanied by a variety of jackets from suit coat to sporting outerwear. And all models wore a fabulous asymmetrical haircut that was pure Phil Oakey circa 1980.
