Up and Coming: Martin Keehn

Martin Keehn Spring Summer 2013

NY based master tailor Martin Keehn has worked with some of the most talented stylists, celebrities and designers in the business.  He has worked with brands like Calvin Klein and Balenciaga and style icons such as David Bowie and Nicky Minaj…but never one to rest on his pin-cushion; he has also become an amazingly innovative American menswear and accessories designer.

In thee words, Martin calls his SS13 collection “modern, familiar, weird” and that’s dead on.  The collection features hoodies, sweatpants, trans-seasonal separates, belts, backpacks, sacks, and totes in solids and patterns that vibrate with accents of neon green, pink, and orange contrasting with burgundy, grey, and black.  The pieces also feature contrast in their fabrics as well.  In addition to a style that says both pop and the everyman, you can, of course, expect the garments to be impeccably tailored.  Finding the balance between sexy and utilitarian, Martin Keehn has shown the harmony of contradiction in this collection…and as fashion goes…it works.  You can find Martin Keehn at shop.martinkeehn.com
