PRPS RePrps/Artisans Series is a collaborative design program focused on highlighting sustainability while supporting innovative artisans and makers. The series features the customized jeans of PRPS which has been made in collaboration with some of the most reputed denim designers including Gala, Atelier & Repairs, MG&HKM.
Here are some of our favorite pieces :
Le Sabre – Rinse Painted
The newest addition to RePrps/Artisans program is hand-painted jeans by Miami-based, artist GALA. GALA repurposed PRPS’s best-selling Le Sabre Fit Jeans, in deep black rinse denim, with an embellishment process that yields dramatic, one of a kind results. Each size in the range is designed to look the same, but small differences will appear as each piece was created individually.
Prps X Atelier & Repairs Re-Purposed Windsor Bleached
Introducing Prps X Atelier & Repairs, the latest collaboration in Atelier & Repairs which is the fashion industry leader in the movement to reduce excess production, one of the core principles of RePrps/Artisans.
The first collaboration between Prps X Atelier & Repairs is a mashup of iconic Prps designs and vintage textiles from the Atelier & Repairs archives. Atelier & Repairs re-engineered and re-designed these pieces into one of kind jeans and sweatshirts, destined to become collector’s items.
The iconic, bleach wash, slim-fit stretch jeans by PRPS have just the right amount of rip & repair, with signature paint splatter details. Atelier & Repairs repurposed them by adding multi-pattern trim down each leg, floral patches, and knee rip backing.
Prps X Atelier & Repairs Re-Purposed Windsor White
The PRPS’s classic, white slim fit, stretch, ripped jeans have been updated with their signature, subtle black paint splatter details. Atelier & Repairs repurposed them by adding camo, indigo and plaid patchwork on the front, stitching on the pockets and back patch details.
Hand Painted Logo Denim Jacket
The second collaboration between Prps and MG&HKM is a mashup of classic Prps and culture. MG&HKM repurposed the iconic trucker jackets by PRPS into one of kind works of art, destined to become collector’s items.
Each jacket was hand-painted and/or hand illustrated using a combination of bleach, sharpie markers, ballpoint pens, spray paint, acrylic paint, and ink.
On the whole, great art applied to existing jeans in repurposing them to create great value.
