Here is another exciting proposition from the well known Dr Romanelli, having teamed up with Japanese label Anachronorm. Dr Romanelli provides with a greater insight to the background of the project.
Anachronorm is one of my favorite brands, has been for many years now . A little Japanese company that does workwear really well. The great thing about Tomoki Tanushi is his distinctive style, a relaxed Americana approach, very casual , almost hippiesque. At the same time, it’s incredibly authentic workwear to the bone screaming pure quality and craftsmanship.
The collection I did with them is in two parts. The first is a easy to digest cut-and-sew collection. We honed in on a small capsule collection of traditional Anachronorm garments accented with Dr. Romanelli branding.
The second phase developed when Anachronorm sent me their premium vintage items from past seasons. I sat for two-and-half months with them, getting in touch with them so-to-speak, then deconstructed them to bring them back as a collection of bomber jackets and tote bags. They’re about 85 percent vintage Anachronorm and 15 percent new material, but they take on an entirely new life.
