Roi Du Lac, an Italian brand with a French name and a Scottish heritage, was founded in 2016 by husband and wife pair Marco Kinloch Herbertson and Princess Antea Brugnoni Alliata. The brand was inspired by the couples’ love of their home and way of life in Italy, and represents a convergence of history and design, timeless colour, and classic style.
Marco is the artistic force behind the brand, using water colours to paint the initial designs that are then printed onto the collections pieces. Marco creates truly magical scenes and takes us into his imagination, brings us into his travels through these prints. Antea is the business mastermind. Together they create a powerful pair.
Inspired to create Roi Du Lac by their love of design, scenic wallpapers and the 21st century expectation of access to everything with a click or a swipe on a digital device. Their collections aim to respond to the way we live now, celebrating with witty exuberance and occasional subtlety the convergence of old world design with modern production and sensibilities. All of Roi Du Lac’s collections tell a story about the founders’; their journeys and the countries that have impacted them in a special way.
Using the highest quality materials, paying special attention to how the prints Marco creates will transfer to different applications, and how the fall, feel and fit of fabrics will respond and reflect the design, and the person interacting with the piece, Roi Du Lac is a truly special brand to experience.
