Mirco Gaspari is a young upcycling brand based in Paris. Its vision is organic and avoids any ideas of season, collection and mass production. All pieces are resurrected by the designer himself thanks to different customization techniques. They are available on the brand ecommerce website. A fresh approach already supported by big names in the industry like Browns or Farfetch.
Born in Italy, Mirco Gaspari settled in Paris few years ago. His inspirations come from his country and his mother, a seamstress who gave him the passion of fashion. He aims to give to his customers a unique experience thanks to unique clothes and accessories.
Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality and environmental value.
Upcycling is a way to give rebirth to an existing object. Mirco Gaspari has carefully selected some second-hand pieces for their design and their authenticity and then customized them so that they become unique artworks.
His process is aimed at giving a second life to an existing garment without using new materials. The designer is conscious enough about the fact that we live in a world full of treasures where new textile production is not necessarly needed. On the contrary, he thinks that a cloth he will enrich will be ready to live again and perform for decades.
ABOUT THE TECHNIQUES
Mirco Gaspari uses a lot of interesting techniques to regive birth to these pieces:
paintings to design unique colourful patterns, tie&dye process to draw arty shapes, patchwork to re-assemble old fabrics and create a new unique textile combination, screen-printing that enrich the piece with geometric patterns, photo-developping onto denim to immortalize a picture from the past and many others..
