Before we got caught up with the holiday madness, Freshness had the privilege to check out the latest project by Dr Romanelli here at Recon New York flagship store. The process for each started with Dr Romanelli and his team of specialists, prospected mint condition, authentic apparels from the original Nike Air Jordan One thru Four Collections (circa 1984-1989). Next, the doctor “re-animate” each piece by the practice of cut-and-sewn, adding on only the newest and finest materials he can find: premium Italian calf leather, perforated leather, custom zippers handcrafted in Switzerland.
The result is one-of-the-kind artwork you can wear, with added details only the doctor and the end user would notice. Each piece also comes with a “prescription”, with Dr Romanelli‘s stamps of approval, signature pins, and a Polaroid photo of the garment “before” he worked on it. The collection is only available at Recon/NORT New York flagship. This also marks the first time Dr Romanelli‘s goods are available in the New York area.
