AVAVAV’s New Collection Features Leftover Fabric From Burberry, Fendi and More

Firenze-based brand AVAVAV just released its second collection out of deadstock fabrics. This limited drop consists out of leftovers from mega-brands like Burberry, Fendi, and Jacquemus. Designer Beate Karlsson also brings back her infamous monster shoes. These four-toed creatures don’t seem very comfortable, but we would love to own a pair!

The second collection of AVAVAV consists out of 80% deadstock materials and 20%  of their own stock. Their mission is to make fashion consumers aware of how damaging the fashion industry is to our environment. As a small brand, they hope to open up the conversation about sustainable clothing production and adapting to current challenges.

Dumpster Diving

AVAVAV uses luxury fabrics from brands like Fendi, Burberry, and Jacquemus. Their production chains often cross paths in Italy at some point, and that’s where much leftover fabric gets thrown away. How does AVAVAV source its fabric? Well, they check local warehouses and even trash containers when the opportunity arises.

Although it is not possible to make all items with only deadstock materials, they claim to use about 20% of all used fabric to be their own stock. All transportation done to make the garments are being covered by electric vehicles and collections are being kept very small to rule out any further waste. Some sweatshirts even have the words “We only made 32 of this” embroidered on them.

AVAVAV’s limited second collection is now available on their website
