Martine Rose is all the rage in the UK fashion landscape.

The British-Jamaican designer is recognized for her boundary-breaking approach to traditional menswear and often pays tribute to her home grounds. Rose recently presented her Spring/Summer 2024 collection in a North London community block, dominated by unmistakable cultural references and first looks at her forthcoming Nike and Clarks Originals collaborations.

After much anticipation, the former has finally arrived. Nike officially revealed Martine Rose’s next partnership, taking inspiration from female football players and genderless traditional tailoring. The collaboration opens the doors to the next generation of football enthusiasts, dissolving gender stereotypes in sports. The collection emulates transitional player wardrobes from “getting off the plane” to “arriving on the pitch.”

The offering keeps female players suited and booted for their next match, featuring tonally striped co-branded shirting with custom football patches. Player suits are done up with faint indentations and Swoosh chest embroidery, while trench coats boast an additional sleeve that loops through the front. Visor-like sunglasses, stockings, and gloves complete the accessories line.

As for footwear, Martine Rose introduces her second Nike Shox Mule MR 4 installment. The previous pairs were released in a white and black palette nearly a year ago, debuting three vibrant interpretations for 2023. As seen on the runway, the Nike x Martine Rose Shox Mule MR 4 is designed in gradient blue-to-purple and yellow-to-orange colorways as energetic as 1990s goalkeeper jerseys. The mule is splashed with paint across the medials for its third and final take.

Take a closer look at the Martine Rose x Nike football collection in the gallery above. The offering will release online via Martine Rose on July 25 and on Nike SNKRS and select retailers on July 27.
