Nearly a decade after founding the House of Mark Pomerantz, focusing solely on fashion design, it was time to turn the focus onto the surroundings of the brand, after all, impeccable tailoring needs the be showcased in more than just a showroom, it needs it’s own gallery, as tailoring is truly an art to me.

With so many avenues of inspiration, endless ideas stream through with excitement, but when focused down on my longtime inspirations, a new home for the brand started to take shape.

Aesthetically the decor of classical Paris was always appealing to me, opulent and thoughtful, I wanted to embody this classicism and marry it with a contemporary sparseness. Comfortable sumptuous textures have long been my north star and serve as an inspiration when designing my collection–Embracing the Parisian idea of designing an apartment rather than a design office allowed creativity to flow from each room turning the fantasy of an idea into the delight of a reality.

This flow begins with the foyer, the sight of the sleek marble hospitality area is a warm welcome, where clients get greeted and then enter the “Gallery” itself. This is where we showcase our collections they hang in an opulently minimal environment, a clean black casing capped in marble. As if it were art on the walls of an art gallery, the collection takes center stage in the space. Central in the Gallery is a marble topped island, positioned so one can comfortably gather or flow around with ease to our other spaces. With minimal distractions in mind, all the fabric books and collection books are concealed in specially engineered drawers–So our gallery noir is both clean and mysterious.

To the left of the gallery is the “Lounge”, a low slung space to engage in ideas with colleagues and begin to create the fantasy with clients. We house our rare and exclusive books in this space as well, the ultimate space for inspiration.

Once this this conversation turns into reality, the destination is the private “Fitting Suite”, on the other side of the Gallery. The most private space instills confidence in the expression to dress and assume the image that was created during their visit in the lounge.

And finally, you are invited to pass through our intimate conference room through a sliding door cloaked in black silk moiré wall coverings into to the private Atelier and design office. The very heart beat of Mark Pomerantz, pumping out creativity, everything from photo shoots to new design get conceptualized into reality here.

If you have been to our new space we hope you enjoyed the experience, and if you haven’t yet this is my personal invitation…

Luxury Holiday Gifts

Luxury, in my opinion should be enjoyed, as much as it is admired, and the holidays are a great time to share special moments of time and luxury with the ones we love.

This in mind I have created 3 very special limited edition gifts suitable to indulge yourself or a loved one with this season.
If the season leaves you craving warm-weather comfort, my 100% pure Vicuna scarf will leave you feeling warm, in the most luxurious fashion. Referred to as the “Gold of the Andes”, Vicuna is a small soft animal living at the highest elevation within the Andes Mountains, this cold air causes the animal to develop a protective sheath around their natural coat of fibers, creating a barrier from the elements and giving the fiber an un-matched soft hand. The Vicuna used for this scarf is harvested and woven by our most prestigious fabric mill, Scabal, who also produce the world’s most exclusive 100% Pure Vicuna Suiting and Jacketing. So exclusive, we are the only studio in North America that is allowed to have the full set of these books on-hand at any time. Style with an overcoat, sportcoat or over a light weight sweater or denim and cashmere shirt giving an elegant and seasonal flourish to all types of outings. The scarf is available in 3 colors; Black, Navy and Natural Tan.

If travel is on your itinerary this season, I have designed the ultimate bundle of travel luxury. Never satisfied with the big airline carriers amenities, (and often without some creature comforts I have at home), this inspired me to create a Mark Pomerantz version of personal luxury travel accessories. Made from 100% pure cashmere, this set will keep you comfortable and cozy on any trip. The set is comprised of a blanket, pillow and eye mask offered in black, 100% 12gg cashmere.

Often times when travelling or even just living daily life, I find myself in a clothing void, one that sits between workout gear and tailored casual clothing. What I always envision was a dressier and discrete version of a sweatsuit, so this season I have designed just that. Made from 16gg 100% pure Loro Piana Cashmere or Merino Wool yarns, this “Ultimate Track-Suit” is light weight, extremely soft, and designed with my signature self-knit gros-grain stripe down the leg and the side of the body. A signature MP staple that makes an understated statement worn together on a morning coffee walk or as separates (I wear the hoodie on flights over a dress shirt and tie with jeans) that will travel effortlessly anywhere life takes you.
This set is offered in a variety of colors, shown here in black.

Please note all items are exclusive and limited in quantity.

Moiré Dinner Jacket

Formalwear has always been a huge source of inspiration for me, and Look No. 7 from the FW19 Collection is a very unique one. This look incorporates a silk moire dinner jacket, paired with an unexpected cream cashmere turtleneck, and an ultra smooth textured plum wool pant.
This look is a tactful mixture of both bold and delicate textures and colors making it incredibly enticing and sumptuous in the hand.

Additionally I find moire cloth to be fascinating, it’s made by pouring water in between the silk fabric, folding it, and then pressing it to lock in this wavy design—Much like a tie-dye but with only water and heat. The irregular patterns and texture always look rich and timeless, and in this pale grey-lavender hue, it’s wavy textures are showcased impeccably.

Paired with the machine trouser or even black or blue denim, this pale jacket will stand out in the room of any event as the most spectacularly stylish.
For a sartorial minded connoisseur, this is the next step up in their style evolution.

Fall/Winter 2019 Inspiration

Thomas, a London based fashion photographer and the subject character of my favorite movie, Blow Up, is a man who expresses his curiosity through his medium- in this case, photography.
His personality is a juxtaposition of vain pragmatism, (the first scene of the movie captures Thomas waking up in a tenement and leaving in his convertible Silver Cloud), his everyday documented with camera in hand. Despite his jaded attitude, he displays through his photographs a youthful optimism and restrained amount of bravado.

As mere non-fiction mortals, how do we express our curiosities with the same cool aplomb?
For me, “Collection” is this medium, a seasonal opportunity to renew my passion and bring new ideas to life.

For Fall/ Winter 2019, “Blow Up” and the visuals seen through the unabashed lens of its hero serve as an inspiration to indulge our sartorial curiosities. Drawing on textures and colors found on the sets of his photo shoots, I look forward to presenting the launch of our newest collection next week, as well as the details of each of the eight looks.
