Supported by the Revibe platform in the Denim Fashion District area, 3 upcycling brands will present a selection of products from their collections:
Born in 2019, the Parisian brand Resap defines itself as a Maison d’Upcycling.
Specializing in the creation of upcycled patchwork pieces, the brand makes many garments and accessories from recovered denim.
All pieces are made in Paris and some can be made to order.
Broke Clothing (Italy)
The first Italian streetwear brand, Broke Clothing was founded in 1994 in Treviso with the idea of bringing American streetwear to Italy.
100% Made in Italy and linked to the world of skateboarding and snowboarding, the brand creates unique clothing known for the quality of the materials used and their durability.
Common Parts (Romania)
Based in Romania, Common Parts is one of the most promising labels in the growing upcycling ecosystem in Eastern Europe.
Inspired by Pop Art and cartoons, the designer works with textile waste from garment factories in a zero waste process, relying on deconstruction, modularity and patchwork.
Hen’s Teeth (Italy)
What a man really needs to look good and timeless in any situation should fit in one bag. A pair of jeans, a sweatshirt, a t-shirt, a pair of socks and a bandana. And that bag should fit on the seat of a motorbike. And that’s it. From this brilliantly simple idea, Davide Biondi founded his exclusive, casual brand that takes men’s fashion icons to perfection: Hen’s Teeth.
Founded by Davide Biondi, the Italian brand advocates for Made in Italy and timeless and durable pieces, icons of the male wardrobe with a soul.
“Our world is obsessed with growth. Our whole human existence is condemned to unconditional growth, which cannot be stopped by anything or anyone, and whose accomplices are called capitalism and globalisation.”– Davide Biondi, Hen’s Teeth founder
When he founded Hen’s Teeth, Davide followed his heart. He simply combined the three things that had inspired him since childhood: Clothes, graphic design and motorbikes.
Located near the Italian city of Padua, the Gallia brand focuses on the creation of high-end shirts for men.
Committed to eco-responsibility, the company has always pursued a strong environmental conscience by using innovative materials and favouring internal or local production, allowing it to keep the production chain short and transparent.
100% Made in Italy, the Gallia collections combine elegance, durability and quality.
Stripes Of-f Road (Italy)
Paola Verzini and her husband Michele founded the Stripes Of-f Road accessory brand in Verona, Italy in 2007. Instilled with a passion for tailoring and craftsmanship by her tailor parents, Paola still follows this sartorial philosophy in the production of the Stripes Of-r Road bag and accessory collections.
The brand works mainly to order and offers the possibility to personalize the design, from the inner and outer fabrics to the yarns and zips.
Passionate about the world of denim, the designer couple has for several years been pursuing upcycling with the use of high quality, durable and non-fading Italian denim fabrics.
“When I think of our bags, I think of the travellers, the explorers of the past, the people who, when they left, didn’t know when they would return but who could rely on their bags to store their most precious belongings.” – Paola Verzini.
