Riscarti-upcycling Calypsonia

Info

WHAT will be done

Description:

Calypsonia is a beachwear brand. We are 2 students of Fashion studies at La Sapienza in Rome, Floriana Muzi and Denisa Kucik. Together with Riscarti, an association bringing artists together engaged in creative recycling to give discarded objects a second life in the form of works of art.

We have detected that a lot of luxury hotels cannot give a very long life to their towels and blankets, because of their high standards. And in most cases, they are thrown away after few uses. We have contacted Le Meridien Visconti Roma Hotel, and its willing to supply us with their discarded towels and blankets. We want to experiment with these materials to create beach accessories to accompany the bikinis and trunks, embedding this in the process of brand restructuring.

We are editing a video telling our news experimental accessories. We are confident that much richer ideas and proposals will be outcome of this experimentation.
