Blagovna znamka moške mode Petja Zorec drzno združuje protislovne teme, ki se odražajo v oblikovno izrazitih pret-a-porter kolekcijah in izpolnjujejo zahteve vsakdanjega življenja, neozirajoč se na specifike spolov. Z uporabo tradicionalnih tekstilnih tehnik in tehnoloških novosti, kolekcije lahkotno združujejo strogost in igro, umirjenost in hitrost, udobje in svečanost ter so namenjene univerzalnem posamezniku.
