With its second drop _DR02_PENTIMENTI_ MARKE expands its product portfolio and launches the first collection of apparel. Read below to explore all idea, initial thoughts and inspiration.
ALL ITEMS ON THIS PAGE ARE _MARKE_UNIKAT_, A LINE FEATURING PRODUCTS OF A MORE DARING AND VISIONARY APPROACH. BY SETTING THE FOCUS ON CRAFTSMANSHIP, MANUAL FINISHING TECHNIQUES AND MORE ELEVATED SILHOUETTES, THESE MINI-COLLECTIONS GIVE A GLIPSE OF THE DIRECTION MARKE IS HEADING TO. ALL ITEMS ARE DEVELOPED AND MANUFACTURED IN-HOUSE IN THE COLOGNE BASED ATELIER.
THE _MARKE_UNIKAT_ LINE ONLY FEATURES UPCYCLED MATERIAL OR FABRICS THAT HAS BEEN SOURCED FROM OVERSTOCK, TO AVOID AN EXTRA PRODUCTION FOR THE LINE.
The vision of MARKE is one that assembles from taking inspiration from the past, updating its concept and context, and placing it in the present setting a tone and point-of-view for the future. For the first apparel collection, DR02_PENTIMENTI, a wide research of traditional sportswear has created a moodboard and internal examination of classic tennis clothing of the 1920s, a time in which the sport has had a elitist and bourgeouis reputation.
Deducting the stiffness of its traditional social construct, 3D-rendered prints loosen and shaken up the items by adding humor and a splash of colour. Rooted in an understanding of elaborated detailing and manual craftsmanship, both _MARKE_UNIKAT_ and the online available pieces set the standard for the MARKE apparel collections.
All elements, starting from outer fabric, to tapes, and woven labels, are produced in Italy in 100% organic cotton (with highest certification standard GOTS). To keep the overall development local, after fabric weaving, all manufacturing and production are based in Italy as well, guaranteeing highest standard in longevity, quality and detail.
This poloshirt in a sweatshirt quality in heavy-weight cotton from the DR02_PENTIMENTI collection comes in a classic fit. The chest features a 3D-rendered tennis ball print while the sleeves are manufactured with a classic shirt cuff.
Each item comes with a handwritten woven label, placed in the back.
