From Somewhere is the brainchild of Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci, stalwarts of the sustainable fashion scene. Focused primarily on using textile surplus from the luxury fashion industry, the brand’s foundations are based upon upcycling materials and fabrics once intended elsewhere, or more matter of fact, left for waste–a common problem in the fickle fashion industry.
Normally blending combinations of scrap materials to give an almost urban-ethnic feeling to the clothes, the label has recently teamed up with Central Saint Martins graduate Brandy Easter and pattern-cutter Jack Kindred-Boothby, to create expertly re-crafted cashmere and angora knits.
These look fabulous pieced together with autumnal toned tweed separates, which reflect this season’s trend for pleated skirts and well-used plaid, without losing sight of the brand’s signature in creative upcyling.The launching of this new, more classic collection coincides with the introduction of on-line shopping for the brand. Both off-the-rail looks and made-to-order treasures from ‘the Trunk’ section of the website are available for delivery. Finally, fans of From Somwhere will find their favourite label is now available from anywhere.
