Marta Martino is a versatile Italian creative talent, founder of her eponymous brand in 2010 and based today in the Veneto region. Her international experiences and eclectic influences are the basis of her research and constant experimentation with shapes, volumes, and their relationship with surrounding space. In her FW17-18 collection, she gives her personal interpretation of the cage, which is considered to be binding or restrictive as a place of freedom, safe from external forces. The cage as a mask, as an exoskeleton for protection. The cage as a secure place for personal development. The cage as a guarantee of privacy for positive solitude, that introspective solitude which allows for rapid and lucid evolution.
