What a solid collaboration between Tisa and Dr. Romanelli. We’ve seen previews of ‘The Americans’ Collection and now here is full preview below. Check it out.
“The result is TI$A’s past – come back to life. The Americans is an experiment in art and clothing – a revamped and reconstructed line of one-of-a-kind wearable work. Taking Taz’s massive collection of vintage Polo, the duo have cut and collaged and reworked and revolutionized. Utilizing a mix of nostalgia, admiration and innovation, The Americans have resurrected and reformed Ralph Lauren’s legendary line.
The result is Taz’s cherished archives – now transformed into a limited run of exquisite, hand sewn jackets, hat, and totes. The Americans have taken Polo’s iconic early ‘90s Teddy Bear/Ski Lodge prep, beloved by early hip-hop icons and cool kids alike… and transformed it into their own poetic ode to pop culture.”
