In her second capsule collection for Napapijri, buzzy London-based designer Martine Rose channeled the American West Coast, offering up a style focused on the youth and music scene of downtown Los Angeles but centered around the Italian activewear brand’s heritage pieces.
Oversize polo shirts, treated cotton overalls and brightly colored sweatshirts, all with street appeal that channeled a rapper vibe, made up much of the collection. As did the brand’s famous windcheaters and capes, interpreted in a bright palette of primary hues and extra-large shapes for the urban customer.
Expanding on the first collection, this proposition was broader, with chino-style pants added to the outdoorsy mix, as well as a reinterpretation of the brand’s first ever design, the Bering Bag, a large tubular carryall style in waxed cotton.
