Recycling the old into the cutting-edge new, Marine Serre’s range of upcycled wool garments presented in FW20 are a vibrant, ecological take on knitwear classics. The Regenerated Knit Mélange Vest is a peculiar, one-of-a-kind sleeveless jumper crafted from vintage pull overs sourced in The Netherlands. The sweaters used are carefully picked by our transformation team, and grouped by the twosome in two different palettes: a monochrome, grey, black and white colorway, and a brown option in varying Earth tones. Due to the Regenerated nature of the materials used, exact composition of the wool blends and the graphic motifs of the sweaters can’t be guaranteed, but it is exactly this feature that makes every piece all the more unique and precious to each customer.
Form follows function – optimizing to the fullest the base and components of the two vintage pullovers – in the details of the silhouette, while still giving the piece a completely new feel. The first sweater composes the upper front as well as the mid piece in the back, preserving its original ribbed finishings at the shaped neckline, shoulders and hem, overlapping over the other sweaters. The overlapping hems are cut diagonally both in the front and back, delineating a single line around the waist.
