Mansour Martin FW 21 Living Rooms photography by Benoit Bethume

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Belgian duo Mansour Martin showed their collection: Living Rooms. The non-gender collection is inspired by furniture design and brutalism using green, brown and grey looking at upholstery fabrics for their texture. The collection proposes classic worker wear with multiple pockets made out of “upcycled” materials

Fetish pieces include a tailored suit in English wool with slits in the back, sleeves and side and seams so you can see the striped shirt underneath. More fetish in spirit is the black patent shorts and shirt made out of “upcycled” material found in Brussels.

Homewear includes leggings and lycra tops.

The brand is engaged in sustainability, one mission is the recycled polyester made out of sea waste in Spain and used in the printed parkas and bomber. Also in an attempt to reduce their carbon footprint, pieces are made in France and Belgium by independent craftsmen and small family-run factories including a social reinsertion workshop in Brussels.
