Péter Markó, Jr. first encountered ZSIGMOND DORA menswear as a model shooting a collection lookbook at Dora’s birthplace. Visiting the brand’s roots and meeting Dora’s family, he felt a rare familiarity and instant attachment. Working together has blossomed into a friendship and he soon became part of the team. As time went on, he found it more and more inspiring to watch Dora’s career unfold, doing what she loves and doing it well. Now, ZSIGMOND DORA menswear is the only fashion label Péter still models for, whenever called.
Péter’s first ZSIGMOND DORA piece was a corduroy winter coat, which has since been joined by several others. Every collection, the garments feel close to him maintaining the same familiar intimacy as the first time he met Dora. Now, the brand is part of his everyday wardrobe.
Family has always been important in Péter’s life yet joining the family business hasn’t been on his mind for a long time. However, what was supposed to be a brief interlude has turned into an important part of his life. Now, the project closest to his heart is renovating a Trabant with his father – a car that was originally a graduation present from his grandmother. Working with his father, Péter Markó, Sr. and finding his passion for painting and tattooing allowed Péter to feel more like himself than ever before. In their work together, the strength and values of two generations manifest embodying the values of ZSIGMOND DORA menswear.
Péter Markó, Jr. chose MONOK jumper for its monochrome print and soft velvet fabric and KÁVA skorts for their loose fit and unique shape. The KÁVA skorts are offset by ZIRIND trousers, an everyday staple made out of elastic cotton. Péter’s favourite pieces are the ones that slip seamlessly into his everyday wardrobe, yet still feel special.
Péter Markó, Sr. wears KAZÁR top crafted from textured cotton jersey and finished with black hand painted edges and HARTA pants made from thick crepe de chine fabric with blanket embroideries and hand painted textural details.
