Marko Matysik is a glamorous figure on the international fashion scene. As
contributing beauty editor to Vogue Nippon, Matysik is often spotted
backstage or front row in fashion capitols, whipping up fine art
sketches and daubing them with glitter, feathers, et al for his beauty
spreads. But it’s Matysik’s line of uber luxe Marko accessories that
keeps him squarely in the highest echelon of the industry, and what has made
him the subject of fashion legend. In recent seasons, Matysik has treated us to sheared mink headrests (snapped up by Madonna and Donatella at Colette), bullwhip corsets and bungee chord bags, all tres cher and incredibly desirable. A committed ally of luxury from years spent travelling the world in high style as the child of Anglo-German hoteliers,
Matysik doesn’t design with fixed accessory categories in mind — it’s all
on a whim, and items are often designed to make luxury travel even more luxurious. For his AW ’04 collection he features black velvet chinchilla and Russian sable scarves,
Brazilian agate belts, whipsnake cuffs, mink mobius and a group of to-die-for organic knits for babies. Look no further for luxury from an arbitrary explosion.
Marko sells at Barneys NY in New York and Tokyo and at Colette in Paris.
