Marta Martino considers the concept of the cage in her research. Her personal interpretation redefines that 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: the introspective solitude which allows for rapid and lucid evolution.


The cage is the designer’s unfailing source of inspiration and subject of study, it is a constant metaphor for life, thought and the body. With a philosopher’s obsession, each season Marta Martino explores the concept and its ramifications, translating it into beautifully crafted pieces, meticulously executed, structured interpreters of thought, resonating with a contemporary sartorial voice.
