Wearing a jacket made with Granny curtains

The empress of upcycling and slow fashion, that’s her. Anaïs Dautais Warmel, creator of the Les Récupérables label, a reverse fashion product that is imposing a small fashion revolution.

Her thing: using leftover upholstery fabrics from leading couture houses, that provide her with a wild inspiration.

Parisiennes are very smitten by the idea, Coco Chanel would have love it! Using these unusual fabrics, the styliste designs furiously trendy pieces in very limited series, in keeping with a small production, all manufactured in insertion workshops. The motto “Nothing is lost, everything is transformed,” has never been as desirable.

On the racks: a tapestry bombers (€240), a Japanese-style dress inspired by Dior in the 50s (€190), blue worker’s overalls (€130), a  pleated skirt with a tartan motif (€90) or an irisdescent coffee coloured jumpsuit (€220).
