The UPCYCLED project comes from a reflection on the future of fashion and its sustainability: the necessity to reconsider its evolution, production processes and environmental impact, with a desire to rediscover and redefine its past.
The result is a limited edition capsule collection where every piece is unique, made by a combination of existing garments, vintage items and recovered materials deconstructed and put back together, reimagined into new shapes and volumes.
The collection is entirely handcrafted by local seamstresses in Tuscany using fabrics and leathers from our stock, revising old DROMe styles and mixing them with second-hand items, thus acquiring a new life and new meaning.
This season the starting point is the business suit, redefined and reinvented. Recovered and sanitised vintage men’s blazer jackets have been deconstructed and reassembled using existing stock fabrics, keeping the same aesthetic features but acquiring a new structure, a renewed cut. The processing of an item can bring to different outcomes: a new piece or even a combination of pieces, such as dresses made by skirts and shirts.
The capsule collection is made by cropped blazers, bolero jackets, minidresses and miniskirts. A contemporary business uniform that is defined by contrasts: big volumes and cropped lengths, wide shoulders and mini skirts, male cuts and feminine details. A cold palette that explores the range of grey hues and highlights black.
As for the previous season, the male white shirts are elaborated and treated with the same technique, reprocessing vintage shirts whose parts are dismantled and brought back together.
