The elusive Compton artist, that is Kendrick Lamar took to his instagram to showcase a 'bucketlist' moment; sharing a carousel of images depicting mood boards and references that fuelled his collaboration between himself and British-Jamaican designer.
Martine Rose has previously joined forces with the likes of Nike, Napapijri & Stussy to name a few; she now has Kendrick Lamar on her list to brag about. The artist hopped over the pond to join his marvelled fans on his European leg of his Big Steppers Tour. Performing fan favourites like 'Money Trees' & Grammy winning 'Family Ties', Lamar sported a sleeveless leather wrap jacket with his Oklama alias titled on the back, signature black scribble logo hoodie and buckled leather pants.
These pieces marry Martine Rose DNA, her iconic wrapping style seen throughout previous collections as well as Kendrick's West Coast origins, as informed by the infamous Tupac, Eazy-E and other West Coast music legends spotted throughout the design process of this collaboration.
Check out the look & sketches below.
