Inspired by vintage fashion
and ancient traditions.
Modernized and Handmade
by true artisans.
Born in Lisboa.
Hand embroidered in Portugal.
We aspire to inspire women
to reconnect with
effortless feminine silhouettes,
Each Martine Love is unique and destined to
live long after it is created, destined to
be part of a lasting family legacy, passing
from one generation to the next.
We believe clothes should be treasured, nurtured and bring meaning to fashion by being 'original, caring, slow and socially aware'.

The rest is history!
