MARITE MASTINA–PETERKOPA ROLANDS PETERKOPS
s ’ l o r n u e r a M A multi-disciplinary superstar, Mareunrol’s is comprised of Marite Mastina–Peterkopa and Rolands Peterkops, both of whom work in set design as well as costume construction. Honing in on their Spring/ Summer 2017 collection shown in Paris a few weeks prior, the Latvian brand defines its creative vision with razor-sharp coherence. The chosen textiles are hyper-textural, a stunning marriage to the monochrome blue sobriety. Many of the fabrics appear, in one way or another, quilted or crumpled. But the absolute stand-out is the hand-plaited baseball jacket. Beautifully dimensional, it embraced both movement and tactility into its design concept. A pair of shorts was also done with the same woven technique, though flatter and with a tighter construction that emulated a basket weave. The second half of Mareunrol’s collection takes a turn, using a pale beige to execute a few silhouettes that are really anything but. Multi-layered shorts are effortlessly draped against a wide-sleeved poncho-cape hybrid, while the straight cut coat is all-encompassing in its heft. Mareunrol’s articulates its designs with a distinctly European modesty. Never clamoring for attention, the brand instead becomes an object of envy through its dedication to artistic craft and construction.
