We're obsessed with the art of embellishment and have been experimenting with how it can apply to repair. Designers such as Area, Alexander McQueen, Simone Rocha, Tom Ford, and Prada (among many, many more) have inspired our latest repair techniques. We are excited to share a couple techniques including a DIY redesign of a torn cashmere sweater inspired by Area's crystal leopard FW20 detail coming later this month (check out our Youtube) as well as a Simone Rocha beaded bralette made entirely of vintage beads which we will unveil on our IGTV. For now, get inspired by our favorite beaded pieces and imagine a world where you can solve any rip, tear or hole with beads.
