Una Meistere, director of art and culture portal Arterritory.com: “MAREUNROL’ S collections are constructions of mind, imagination and sensations, which, like finely tuned antennae, detect the vibrations of their time, deconstructing them, extracting their essence and visualising them in the universal language of fashion. Artists pose questions, demand attention, experiment with the assumptions, perceptions and materiality. Their collections are spaces for contemplation as well as crossroads, where music, art, literature, cinema, life, dreams, the material and immaterial world meet. They are like wings of imagination that transcend the gravity of rationality and let us reach the territory of unpredictability and spontaneity and see that which otherwise would remain unnoticed.”
In 2013, Phaidon’s almanac “Pattern” ranked MAREUNROL’S among the 100 contemporary designers of today. Lifestyle magazine Wallpaper chose MAREUNROL’S as its cover for its future fashion special edition.
