Leonard and Atelier R&C Are Showing Us That Upcycling Can Be Luxurious

Vintage jeans are upcycled by Atelier R&C using printed off-cuts from Leonard and the result is a statement-making collaboration.

We're turning our backs on basic jeans and getting our hands on a pair of the very limited edition Leonard x Atelier R&C collaboration. The collab is the epitome of upcycling luxury with French fashion house Leonard, famous for its signature prints, teaming up with Atelier R&C to create 50 pairs of jeans, each numbered and each a one-of-a-kind creation. Atelier R&C, the Parisian label that specialises in upcycling vintage denim jackets and bringing them to life with luxurious patchwork using high-end silk scarves from fashion houses including Chanel, Dior and Hermès, has elaborated this jean collection using off-cuts from Leonard's colourful archives. With pieces dating back 20 years, these Leonard off-cuts render the jeans not only sustainable but also precious with their vintage detailing. The collection is available in Paris's Printemps department store and is a priceless addition to any fashion-lover's wardrobe, especially anyone who values unique, colourful designs.
