Mark / Giusti launches its “Palatina” collection forA/W 2011 – 2012. This is MarkFarhat’s second collection for the MARK/GIUSTI brand, following thesuccessful launch at Shoreditch house last June 2010.
Inspiration for this new collection comes from The CappellaPalatina (palatine chapel), located alongside the Palazzo Dei Normanni (palace of theNormans) in Palermo Sicily. Built by roger ii (from 1130 – 1140), the chapel is adornedwith extraordinary Norman-byzantine mosaics and houses thefinest examples of Arab-Norman art in Sicily. The designer has recreated theseintricate byzantine patterns and applied them to the interior lining of eachpiece.
The dominantcolor used in the “palatina’ collection employs an extraordinarily deep andvivid orange contrasted by green top-stitching perfectly matching the colors ofthe mosaics in the Cappella Palatina.
The use ofgrained calf leather, beautifully compliments the previous “Bring Back Time”collection emphasizing the designer’s attention to detail and timeless qualitywhich characterizes the essence of the Mark / Giusti Brand.
Effortlesslypractical, the collection is comprised of a suit carrier, laptop bag, i-pad coverand additional leather accessories.
