Upcycled by DP THE LAB
Improve your brand's likeability and increase your market niche by committing to sustainability.
"Upcycled by DP THE LAB" is a service where the brand DP THE LAB provides a start-to-end process in upcycling clothes from your customers.
Working with expert seamsters and seamstresses and with the designer's knowledge in Textile and Clothing Upcycling, we are able to develop prêt-à-porter and made to measure garments by upcycling your customers clothing items.
Besides the main piece brought by the customer, we use discarded fabrics, upcycled textiles and other recycled elements will be used. The different possibilities that exist are available in a customised catalogue for the brand and also in 1:1 meetings with the customer.
CUSTOMIZED TO IMAGE
Refreshed garments that reflect your clients' personalities and tastes
Upcycled means custom and unique. Sometimes even unrepeatable. It's also an enabler for fashion lovers to have a better impact and to wear something with value.
By repurposing pieces your customers no longer wear and transforming them in something they will value, you are sending a message to the world: WE CARE.
The garments are designed by Dan Pontarlier, but the creative input is generated alongside the costumer and based on their taste, with suggestions from the designer to benefit the shape and look of the client.
The designs range from a selection of premade patterns that will be adapted to the pieces, to a custom exclusive order.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
HOW DOES THIS IMPACT POSITIVELY?
THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL
Besides the main creation of the garments with upcycled fabrics, we partner up with local companies to provide an extra input in the creation of the outfits.
From ties and belt made with repurposed denim, to skirts and vests made out of upcycled coffee bags from "Carte Noir" or "Lavazza".
WE USE YOUR STOCK
Do you still have a stock of unsold product? We can upcycle those fabrics and include them in the new designa, preventing waste and increasing responsibility towards the environment. We will organize the pick up for you and used them in the production.
WEARABLE UPCYCLED ART
Wearable art, also known as Artwear or "art to wear", refers to individually designed pieces of (usually) handmade clothing or jewellery created as fine or expressive art. Historically, fashion has rarely been elevated to the same stature as painting, music, sculpture or architecture. But fashion is one of the purest expressions of art because it is art lived on a daily basis.
We are also here to change that.
