    Its about time this man had his own thread! He is the architect and interior designer for many of the most renowned fashion houses (Chanel, Armani, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Dior) however he also designs for personal homes and for larger-scale projects independent of fashion.

    This is Marino, for those who aren't familiar with him :flower:

    His Chanel Ginza store is by far one of his most impressive works, don't you think?

    He also designed the interior for the Louis Vuitton flagship on the Champs-Élysées.

    Peter Marino (PM) is a "Genius", but only as a businessman. As a decorator and interior design he is mediocre at best and as an Architect he is simply without talent. It is no wonder that he avoids talking about Architecture in the interview above. At least in the interview he is honest about his jealously that Artists have a better gig "scamming" money from clients. Scamming is his genius.

    Ask any of the people within the different brands who have worked with PM and they will confirm this. Ask any of the hundreds of people who have worked in his office and they will tell you they took the job to make money because the design work is NOT innovated and basically copies existing styles. They will more than likely go on to tell you what a extremely repugnant person he is.

    This is the real Marino , for those who aren't familiar with him.

    Peter Marino’s Greatest Hits

    W takes a look at the biggest and boldest design offerings from the leather-clad interior design impresario, as well as his latest undertaking: poured-bronze cabinets which took eight men eight weeks to complete. “Pedro loves a big production,” Marino said, referring to the several hundred pound cabinets—and to himself in Spanish and in the third person, as is sometimes his wont.

    His work is truly amazing, and he also represents each Fashion House as its best.

    You'd guess he's a gay pornstar who's into leather and S&M by judging his outfits :ninja: :lol:

    ^ what a clown.

    I consider architecture one of the last circus-free professions, frequently letting creations speak louder than its creators could ever attempt to, and considerably thoughtful given the physical magnitude and amount of work/investment/etc.. I find characters like Peter Marino a bit embarrassing, public persona aside and acknowledging the fact that one must be sensitive enough to build for those who will inhabit (or offer/shop) in a certain place, there's still a lack of coherence, originality, and mostly soul.. I've only been to the Chanel store in NY (will give him the benefit of the doubt for all the others I don't know).. while I often wonder about the names behind window displays/interiors/architecture and even though I knew nothing about Marino, I don't remember being remotely intrigued or even aware someone somewhere, at some point, devoted some hours to that.

    It's probably a matter of taste anyway (more into Tadao Ando and all that jazz over here).. and the Dello Russo deja vus aren't helping.
