Martin Grant - RESORT 2016

RESORT 2016

juil. 2015

La collection Croisière 2016 Martin Grant raconte une histoire de lignes et de rayures.

Elles se dessinent tantôt bayadères sur de la faille ou fines et discrètes sur de l'organdi aérien. Les diagonales se profilent sur de l'organza aux franges métallisées bleu électrique subtilement gracieuses.
Les silhouettes se précisent grâce à des structures graphiques aux tracés géométriques, et à des jeux de plis creux.

Martin Grant joue avec les impressions : les robes déploient leur volume tout en légèreté, le cuir façon poulain devient léger, les manteaux trapèze sont structurés, les trenchs cintrés se gonflent de taffetas craquant, le denim de lin s’approprie une sophistication contemporaine, les pantalons larges à taille haute redessinent une allure longiligne.

Cette collection reprend les codes chers à Martin Grant : une modernité classique qui se décline sous tous les angles.

Martin Grant - MARTIN GRANT TO DESIGN NEW QANTAS PILOT UNIFORM

MARTIN GRANT TO DESIGN NEW QANTAS PILOT UNIFORM

avril 2015

Australian Fashion Designer, Martin Grant, will create a new modern uniform for Qantas’ domestic, regional and international pilots two years after he designed a popular new image for the airline’s cabin crew and ground staff.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said that a new uniform for the airline’s 2,500 pilots came at a time of renewal. “Every Qantas uniform over the past 95 years reflects its times and we’re excited to work with Martin on a new design that reflects modern Australian style as well as the positive things happening at Qantas,” said Mr Joyce. 

Martin Grant said he was excited by the opportunity to design what will be the first new uniform for Qantas pilots in more than a decade. “The reputation of Qantas pilots speaks for itself, so it’s a real honour to be asked to work with them to create their new uniform. I want it to be comfortable, stylish and most of all, distinguished,” said Martin. “Early feedback from Qantas pilots is that they want to retain the traditional image but give it a modern makeover to be more elegant and more wearable. The female pilots are also hoping for a more feminine line so I will have that front of mind when I begin the design stage,” added Martin. 

Qantas aims to have its pilot community wearing a newly designed uniform during 2016.

Years ago, while looking around Barneys with my friend André Leon Talley, I came across a black leather jacket that I was mad about. I hadn’t heard of the designer, but André knew immediately that it was Martin Grant, an Australian who now lives and works in Paris. I live there too, for part of the year at least, and upon my return I was determined to track him down. It wasn’t easy finding his tiny shop in the Marais, and when I did, it was closed for lunch. So I walked around — and then around some more — until it was open, and there he was, skinny, boyish and super low-key. For me, his talent lies in making coats and jackets that never feel trendy because he understands and respects line, proportion and simplicity. Even now that his Paris quarters are large and lovely, how lucky we are that he doesn’t need or want to show off. And how lucky I am that we remain the closest friends.
