Monday, October 23, 2017

Monday, October 23, 2017

Martine Rose’s studio is so new you can still taste the paint in the air. We’re in a renovated, 19th-century industrial building in Crouch Hill, north London, and the spacious rooms are delightful. But Rose is worried. “I look at this area, this studio, it’s all so smart. I do think: ‘Shit, am I going to start doing really polished things now?’” This concern is understandable.
