We denim fans are just as much obsessed with the way individual brands interpret their own denim styles as we are with doing it ourselves through reworks and DIY. However, it’s not often we stumble across a brand that repurposes old jeans to fabulous pieces of art themselves! Never Too Much Basic is a brand new Italian label that piqued the interest of Vogue after Christophe Decarnin of Faith Connexion teamed up with them for his Resort 2017 collection. Founded in March 2015 with the concept of thinking beyond fashion limits while being environmentally conscious, designer Davide De Vivo slashes and rehashes denim sourced from local markets along with team members and creatives Matteo Paloni and Veronica Massa. His pieces, adorned with hand drawings and various appliqués have gained attention around the world. Here are some of his reworked jeans by Never Too Much Basic for Dapper Afrika, a revolutionary art, music, performance art and TV project with a magazine and book in the works.
These pieces are definitely right on board with the beautiful, colorful African culture, and I’m intrigued about what Dapper Afrika has coming up! Stay tuned, both for this revolutionary project as well as more from the unique brand that is Never Too Much Basic.
