MARQUES, the Lisbon-Dubai based luxury label, is proud to announce its iteration into the upcycling movement on two fronts: through new designs and integration under its bespoke atelier. The brand is taking a sustainable approach to fashion, with a focus on using existing materials and revamping them into something new and unique.
The Synthesis Shirt is the first new design to be released, and it's a perfect example of the brand's commitment to upcycling. This shirt is reconstructed using scarves sourced during the brand's trips around Europe, and patrons can choose from a general color scheme, select the individual scarves that go into the design, or simply trust the process and let MARQUES combine the different pieces into one bold look.
Another example of the brand's commitment to sustainability is the Meldrum Fur Coat, created under the MARQUES Atelier, the bespoke arm of the brand. This piece was commissioned by one of the brand's loyal patrons and is a vintage raccoon fur coat that has been completely taken apart and re-engineered by the brand's craftsmen with a new inner structure, lining, and re-nourished fur. This is a showcase of a sustainable approach to real fur in the fashion industry.
With several more designs to be released over the coming year, MARQUES is taking its commitment to a sustainable strategy beyond the already-implemented practices such as made-to-order production and exclusive use of natural fibers. The Synthesis shirt is currently available on www.MARQUES.world with a limited number for immediate delivery. Bespoke works such as the mentioned Meldrum Fur Coat can be quoted upon request and prices will vary based on materials and complexity. MARQUES is leading the way in sustainable fashion, with a focus on upcycling and repurposing existing materials to create unique and stylish pieces. These new designs are a perfect example of the brand's commitment to sustainability and its ability to create beautiful, wearable fashion that makes a statement.
