Firm Faces #16

In appearance more biker than architect, Peter Marino has a very distinctive style that can be found all over his eponymous firm's web page, particularly in the slideshow for The Studio portion, where the below photos were found.


Black leather pants, black leather boots, black get the idea.


With his distinctive and consistent attire, combined with a portfolio that is centered on fashion houses, photos like the one above, with Sidney Toledano (president of Christian Dior) and actress Charlize Theron, are no surprise.


While I can't say for sure that these are the faces of his firm, the people that accompany Marino here don't have his distinctive style, but that seems appropriate. They take on a similar cool attitude and convey a sense of style about the firm, aided by the angle of the photo and its location on a stair landing. And of course Marino stands tall in the center of everybody.
