This past Saturday, Greg Lauren was on hand at Barneys New York to present his new collection of reconstructed jackets for men and women (fashioned of deconstructed vintage military uniforms, tents, and bags). Each piece is one of a kind and hand sewn by Lauren and his team of artisans. An established artist and actor, Lauren enters into the fashion design market with a mature talent. This collection is proof that no matter what wash, be it acid, stone, or any other, and no matter how many times you run over your new pair of jeans over stones with your tires, you just can't beat the original vintage piece whose patina comes with age and wear and tear. Fantastic!!!
