KALTBLUT presents: MARKE! A young jewelry brand from Cologne, Germany, founded in 2021. “The editorial is part of ‚VISION_INVITED‘, a project by MARKE, for which I invite young photographers, artists and creatives to freely interpret the products with their own vision and unique sense. The editorial is the result of the invitation of photographer and model Valentine Bouquet.” Model & Dancer is Christian Yav signed at The Fashion Composers Agency. Styling by Alex van der Steen. Hair & MakeUp by Alexandra Borcila signed at NCL Representation.
‘Art and trash don’t compete, but correlate. The street has aroused from the classicism. Dom Pérignon and burger has always been a perfect match, just as Britney Spears and Nietzsche’
Driven by the mindset to understand the human spirit and personality as a free, dynamic construct, MARKE creates collections which give the character room to simultaneously explore differing shapes of aesthetic.
A rich canon of inspiration, influences of historic decades and and future epoques creates a world that puts product in new context by playing with conventional and alternativ apporaches.
Hybridity, fluidity and ecclecticism are paramount roles. Historic and newly developed manufacturing techniques balance the boarders of production of jewelry, textile, accessoires and interior.
