Good Read: Peter Marino – “The flagship fashion man”

Originally Peter Marino wanted to be an artist. Now he’s an architect and is among the most influential ones within the industry. Not too shabby either.

The man whose look is inevitably reminiscent of the darkroom of Berlin club Berghain or, well, the Village People, was now portrayed by the Fashion Telegraph. A very interesting piece:

Peter Marino: the flagship fashion man

Marino has really earned the title “Flagship Fashion Man”. There literally is no Interior Designer or architect who has designed more fashion stores. Marino has done shops for Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Armani, Chanel, Vuitton, Fendi, Zegna, and Loewe.

The 62 year old who incredibly also is a family dad, is married to a woman. When Marino isn’t racing his motorbike through New York City, he is working 12 hours, 7 days a week. He sums up his success formula as follows:

“Quality, functionality, a gorgeous sense of light, and what I call a mixed rich cultural baggage.”

Marino finds projects below the 3 million dollar mark boring. Same here.
