All eyes on Martin Grant collections

When it comes for autumn clothes, there are some things essential to me: they must be cosy&warm, they must have big pockets (yes, even dresses and jumpsuits) and they have to respect my color code (black and white, with some delicate touches of blue, silver or deep sea green). Therefore, it is easy to understand that I have my eyes kept on the latest Martin Grant collection, presented in the designer’s salon in Le Marais, Paris. (CLICK on the gallery above, for more pictures)

About fall/winter 2016/2017 collection by Martin Grant: day silhouettes are in black and white sparkling tweed, bottle green leather and plaid motif wools. The bomber jacket is combined with slim pants; turtleneck pullovers become oversized. The long striped tweed cardigan were associated with a sculptural, pleated, wide-leg pant to create slender lines. The green evening trench is softly structured with gently angled pockets. The fluid jumpsuits have deep-cut decolettés. The evening dresses are subtly belted with grosgrain and the pareo dress comes alive in exalted simplicity. Grant’s work reflects his refined understanding of structure and volume. Each garment is constructed in such a way as to maintain a direct relationship to the body as a sculptural form.

About the designer: Born in Melbourne, Australia, Martin Grant launched his first ready-to-wear collection at the age of 16. The young prodigy’s talent was quickly recognized by the Australian fashion industry and four years later he was named Cointreau Young Designer of the Year. After a brief period studying sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts, Grant established his studio in Paris and produced his first runway show in the heart of the Marais district. It was during this time that supermodel Naomi Campbell made a surprise appearance modelling Grant’s collection.
Martin Grant has also collaborated with major luxury brands (Barney’s Private Label for Barneys New York, Agnona, Moncler). In 2004, the Federation Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode invited the Martin Grant house to show on its official calendar. In 2005, the National Gallery of Victoria held an exhibition celebrating Martin Grant’s work and achievements. (
