Martens is known for his distinctive denim cuts, but for this collection, he transferred all his disruptive energy to sportswear. He took classic tracksuits and active-wear pieces and twisted them into off-kilter new proportions. “It’s these really strong twists that we did in the past, which were implemented on very iconic Fila garments from the archives,” he said. As well as a new version of the company’s Grant Hill sneaker, there were slash neck sweatshirts, tops with double and even triple arm holes, fold-over waistbands, and panels that zipped away to reveal the logos of both brands.
Elsewhere he continued his experiments with form and silhouette with the emphasis on creating adaptable pieces that can be worn a multitude of ways. Some faux leather jackets had ‘triple’ shoulder constructions or extra lapels and exploded cable knits offered several options possible neck or arm holes.
