The Air Monarch IV Martine Rose
On the release calendar is The Air Monarch IV Martine Rose set to arrive on January 12th at 10:00 AM EST.
Nike and Martine Rose join forces and are now gearing up the official release of probably the best collaboration in the world. In an exploration of athletic proportions, Rose flips the script on conventional streetwear and delivers a collection designed to distort the ordinary. Done in “White/Metallic Silver,” “Black/Black” and “Rose/Pink,” the collab expresses the London-based designer’s outlook on design. By fitting a size 18 upper onto a size 9 sole unit the inventive method created a deformed and distorted silhouette that maintains all the detailing of the Air Monarch IV. Featuring bold retro colors and throwback silhouettes inspired by the youthful attitude of London street and sportswear.
“We wanted some of the forms to spill over the base and we wanted the heel on the outfit to be further out than the sole…things we were initially told couldn’t be done,” said Rose. “But everyone kept on pushing and we ended up developing these new shapes and ideas.”
