The inaugural MARTIN DIMENT fall/winter 2019 sweater collection is due to be launched exclusively in the UK. The collection is British in its DNA with a modern global attitude.
This seasons inspiration and brief from Martin was to consider the contorted and awkward self portraits of Egon Schiele using monochromatic colours and textures. The detail in Martins knitted stitch work and colour palette reminds me of seascapes and million-year-old rocks eroded by the seawater.
The influence of Egon Schiele showing itself in the work with its elongated forms and angled shapes, articulating in metal a reflection of the awkwardness inherent in some of Schiele Pieces. martindiment.com
