Upcycling has become a major part of all of our lives as we look to help the environment and the fashion industry are now joining the craze, transforming old furniture items using high-end recycled clothing.
LN-CC and designer Darren Romanelli have come together to create a series of chairs and sofas titled RxCycle – which are upholstered entirely from garments of some of the fashion world’s biggest names.
Following the trail blazed by the likes of Marine Serre and Marni Franceso Risso, who make their clothing using vintage scarves, deadstock fabric, and charity shop discoveries, Romanelli and LN-CC are fusing high fashion and upcycling together to create unique homeware items.
The collection has been upcycled using garments from Martine Rose, Alyx, Vetements, Maison Margiela, Off-White, and Raf Simons.
A sofa and two chairs have been designed for the range, each with intricate patchworks covers.
The three items mark an ongoing sustainability project between LN-CC and Romanelli, with a much more detailed and extensive collection set to be made available to buy at LN-CC online soon.
In Europe a family, on average, will throw away up to 30 kg of clothing each year. Romanelli and LN-CC are hoping to make better use of all that waste, while also helping to improve the environment.
