Martin’s menswear, since its first conception in 1999, seemed to showcase garments which are considered regular pieces but coupled with the most endearing attention to detail. These details can be missed by the untrained eye, but which is part what makes his work so intriguing. For his SS06 collections, models were seen wearing garments that seemed to be soaking wet, crinkled up, or loose off the body. This was paired with water related Trompe L’oeil graphics, tailored jackets and leather items.
This jacket is constructed in a soft, but durably thick, leather throughout with an inspired shape from a classic flight jacket with anatomical arms. A wide array of details are seen to cover the face of the jacket including gunmetal buttons with multiple leather belts attached, two zipper chest pockets, epaulettes and a belted waist. Two inner pockets and a zip closure finishes off the jacket.
