A remodel story
This spring we started on an interesting project that was bought to us by one of our favorite and might I say most stylish clients. She is really one of the most influential women in fashion and a real mover and shaker within the industry. Always ahead of the curve – the first to know what is cool and always knowing what will be trending next year and beyond. So when she came to us with this simple idea – I knew it was genius.
The kernel of the idea comes from remaking something new from something that you once loved and wore with joy into something you want to wear again. Make it a must-have again – something classic but still on-trend.
Transforming the mundane into the fabulous
It can be done in so many ways – here is one simple solution
You know that coat ?? That puffer coat from last year with all the pockets ?? and the zips?
That ubpictuyous coat (from you know where ) that was so on trend and you wanted it - and then it was literally everywhere.
From The upper east side lady to the au pair in Tribeca?
It was all over the street and in so many colors right?
And now you are so over it ? not a huge investment but now a little redundant and unworn in your wardrobe
LP the insider I mentioned came to us with a solution to recapture the love you once felt for it.
Take that coat or any standard puffer or puffy jacket or puffy vest (stay tuned for more ideas to come)
Get your fur, take your grandmother's fur, get your friends fur or guess what we have fur.
The idea is the reuse any amazing fur you have on hand (we do take a look to make sure it is viable)
Any fur – sheared works really well
Sew fur into coat * just the body and hood – we quilt the sleeves
The hood!! We can trim the fur with your fur (we can combine more than one of your coats
If you have and mink coat and a fox coat?)
Or go in with a friend and combine both your coats – great way to use up unworn furs
Or Guesss what we have great pre-owned furs here or new fur as well
We can just put regular fur in – or we can super size it !! give it an amazing fluffy trim
Believe me this will be warm and toasty enough
Sub zero temps, bring them on – you are ready for the Tundra – or just walking around with your light sweater underneath
But seriously, what is warmer and more luxe than this – Fur on the inside
Plus very importantly it is SUSTAINABLE – Pologeorgis is known for luxury in furs and outerwear but we are also experts in remodeling furs,
We are remaking previous owned garments and intermixing them with furs and luxury fabrics
WE are upcycling and customizing into the most unique of garments
This is making last years trendy and really disposable puffer coat into a more important trend setting piece
The trend for 2020 – and beyond – is responsible for consuming, buying less and buying better quality.
Our informed client knew this and of course an ahead of the trend
The options are limitless – we are happy to give some suggestions for redesigns and pricing.
