Fashion designer Martin Tual likes to combine an eclectic mix of references. Moebius, the French cartoonist, all the Marvels, Miyazaki, Dune, Star Wars, Alien: all were big influences on him growing up. “My father had a big collection of comic books,” he explains, “so I think it started there.” More recently he’s taken ideas from observing his friends, people on the street, and much more abstract, existential concepts. “It can be very random, but I am often very inspired by the development of the human experience, technological advancements and how we as humans adapt to it.”
