I’m working on a new project for school. The goal for the end of the year is creating an upcycling store. It’s a place where you can buy things that are already recyled by some designers but there is also a sort of atelier where people can work together with second-hand materials to create their own unique piece of clothing. I found some cool upcycled designs on the internet wich I want to show to you all!
Two guys’ bow ties:
They make wooden bow ties out of reclaimed old flooring and furniture. The bow ties look really cute and unique! I love the texture of wood, it brings something refreshing and sophisticated! You should definitely add some wood to your wardrobe!
Margaux Lange’s plastic body art jewelry collection is made of barbie doll parts in combination with sterling silver and pigmented resins. This combination leads to surprising designs. I find this really awesome. Barbie was always a fashion statement and now seeing her face as a piece of jewelery is really cool.
Poketo is a brand that brings art for your everyday. One of their collections is made of 100 % upcycled materials. I love the fact that leather looks more beautiful by age, so using already used leather is a great idea! If I was a woman I certainly would buy one of these lovely bags!
I will keep you all posted about my school project.
