RE/DONE, The heritage brand revival label, most known for repurposing vintage Levi’s, is collaborating with Italian speciality couture line Attico. Dropping May 15th.
Re/Done’s co-founder Sean Barron tells Vogue the seemingly unexpected collaboration made perfect sense as “The spirit of Attico falls right in with Re/Done’s — we’re both honouring the past”, after having had met the Attico’s designers Tordini and Ambrosio at a dinner in Paris, where he asked the duo to pay a visit to Re/Done’s L.A. headquarters. Barron had noticed how uniquely each of the Italian designers had styled their Re/Dones, “For Tordini, it’s usually with pumps and a silk blouse, while Ambrosio might mix her jeans with an XXL jacket and shield sunglasses. Both women wear them with silky Attico kimonos, too; it’s the item they launched with in 2016.” Attico’s infamous ornate peignoir-inspired sultry pieces are the hallmark of their label.
On the suitability of the collaboration, Tordini shared with Vogue “We each start with vintage but in different ways.. Gilda and I love to do research at vintage stores and archives, so we asked Sean to take us to these big warehouses in L.A. where we could find authentic pieces.” The duo had spent the entire day digging through rag houses and unearthing jeans, floral prints and kimonos.
