Martine Rose Releases North London Based ‘Don Pedro’ Zine

August 10, 2017




North London’s Cultural Influence.

Martine Rose has released her ‘Don Pedro’ zine, focussing on the inspirations for her Autumn/Winter 2018 collection which include North London, especially Tottenham. Here, cultures clash and Rose focussed on the juxtaposition of blue collar, contemporary tailoring, sportswear, workers of all backgrounds and Seven Sisters Market.

Don Pedro was photographed by Britt Lloyd, produced by Harry Fisher and released by Machine-A and Ditto. 200 copies of the Don Pedro zine are available now at Machine-A and Ditto for £15.

Hypebeast interviewed members of Machine-A and Ditto about the zine. Head to their website to read the full interview.

What makes Martine’s work particularly suited to this kind of publication?

Ben Freeman, Ditto Press: Martine’s work is highly culturally aware, and the influence of places, signs, symbols and characters on her collection inspired us to recreate her word within a publication. It is always a pleasure to work with people who have a broader narrative to their output, beyond clothes and in to the culture and society in which they are worn. It was also a great opportunity to create a fictional character who embodied the place, Seven Sisters Indoor Market, that inspired the collection. We could really use the medium to explore every aspect of this idea.
