This is the latest project from Dr Romanelli, made exclusively for retailer JUSTONEEYE (Check out the Ed Ruscha designed web interface!)

Inspired by rock icon Janis Joplin, Made For Pearl introduces a new collection with limited edition vests created exclusively for Just One Eye by designer Dr. Romanelli. Part Gypsy Rambler and part Cosmic Cowgirl, Janis Joplin took Flower Child fashion and gave it grit and fire. She flaunted a vibrant, unapologetic persona and brash, in-your-face glamour.

The Janis Joplin estate carefully sourced vintage pieces for the project, allowing Dr. Romanelli to work the restructure and re-purpose magic for which he’s known.

The result is the first pieces of what promises to be an incredible upcoming collection – 5 stunning vests of fur and leather that perfectly capture the spirit and aesthetic of Janis Joplin.

Modern bohemian fashion owes it’s very lifeblood to Joplin freewheeling, revolutionary style and it seems only fitting that we take that inspiration to create a line as enduringly modern and timelessly relevant – as Joplin’s own colorful legacy.

The collection is available here.
