Dr. Romanelli

Posted on September 22, 2006 Under Fashion

Now, I am sure most of you are thinking the same thing, did MC Hammer have a garage sale or something? But, don’t jump to conclusions just yet. When Darren Romanelli was just a college student he would go to thrift stores and buy vintage pieces, take them apart and put them back together. After doing this on his own for a couple months, the LA hipsters and hipsterettes started to notice Mr. Romanelli’s (sorry Dr.) creations and soon a clientele of LA’s hottest boutiques were on board. Once an underground demand started to build for Romanelli’s one-of-a-kind hand made pieces, Nike decided they were going to give him a shot at working with the scraps on the cutting room floor. Ten collections later neither are looking back and Romanelli’s client list is getting longer and his clothing is getting even better. Now before you whip out your cell phone in search of these street-wear masterpieces be warned that the jackets cost around $1500 and the hoodies $600!
