Dr. Romanelli has been busy in 2011: the noted brand and clothing alchemist took on full curatorial duties at the http://project.magiconline.com” target=”_blank”>PROJECT trade show in January, not only creating a museum-grade installation to bring life to his Beetle Bailey theme for the show, but also creating a full collection of jackets for the show, along with http://freshnessmag.com/2011/01/19/dr-romanelli-beetle-bailey-x-converse-chuck-taylor-all-star/”>a re-engineered Chuck Taylor, and a http://beetlebaileydrx.com/”>microsite to support the whole thing. Dr. Romanelli has also been busy with a series of projects for Massachusetts boutique http://unitefootwear.com/#/home”>UNITE. Romanelli and the store’s founder, Jovan James, have worked on several collaborative projects over the past few years, including the http://freshnessmag.com/2010/12/22/dr-romanelli-x-unite-hickory-backpacks/”>Hickory backpack collection; now Romanelli has released a collection of military-inspired jackets which revisit some of his earlier and most popular work, the RECONSTRUCT collection done with Nike. As Romanelli says, these jackets “…are a hybrid between the RECONSTRUCT collection and vintage military one offs.” The jackets, which are exclusive to UNITE, cover a wide range of military influences; the standard array of camouflage and vintage leathers are joined by pieces of backpacks melded into the pieces. The collection also includes a number of brighter styles, incorporating military-grade nylon fabrics. All are finished with a satin interior, with Riri zippers for the primary closures, and vintage Scovill zippers worked into secondary zips. Check out all of the pieces after the jump, and visit http://unitefootwear.com/#/home”>UNITE for availability information.
