casual meets elegance
marlino implements a new definition of fashion classics by enhancing them with fresh ideas and unusual details. Jackets, blazer and parkas get their redesign in a laid-back urban style. High quality materials receive an unusual finishing: innovative prints surprise and inspire, special dyeings and over-dyeing effects as well as washes give a „well-worn“ aspect.
Contrasts create the enchantment of distinction by the skillful combination
of color, shape and material. Sleek meets texture, fur touches canvas, nylon snuggles to wool.
Precious materials and the highest precision in manufacture turn a marlino-jacket into a favorite piece. Made for individualists with taste for originality and value quality, who are looking for that authentic something special.
A Passion for jackets
favorite pieces for life
The loving attention to all kinds of fabrics and the affinity to colours, details and shapes is what the founders of marlino – Melanie and Dirk Nienaber – have in common.
They put their ideas in close collaboration to come up with innovation-friendly manufacturers. The focus is on long-lasting cooperations, on an intensive
exchange and on the vision to create something precious and beautiful.
The collections are inspired by „zeitgeist“ as well as by the history
of jacket design through all decades. This creates jackets for life. Potential favorite pieces, you can wear for a long time and never want to give them back.

Increased emphasis is placed on special dying techniques and surface treatment to perfekt the character of marlino.
