New Brand Spotlight: Descendant of Thieves

new brand spotlight, descendant of thieves, Dres Ladro, men's fashion apparel, men's fashion clothing,Descendant of Thieves is designed by the pseudonymous artist Dres Ladro. Ladro translated from Italian means "thief"—as the root of this nom de plume implies, he is a Descendant of Thieves.

As a young man, Dres Ladro would sneak into his father’s closet and steal his traditional shirts in order to de-seam and re-engineer the entire garment. Dres designs from the inside out, paying relentless attention to intricacies of the interior first. He distorts aesthetics by cutting the silhouette slim and integrating his distinct detailing, including hidden messages and signature yellow taping in the finished interiors.

Once he joined the art world, his unique attire continued to set him apart. Dres designed, constructed, and wore only his own clothing, so as to never be seen wearing the same thing as anyone else. Despite the attention his singular button-ups and jackets received, he had no interest in starting a brand or selling his designs: he planned to design these limited edition clothes for himself and himself alone.

Over time, Dres was convinced to develop a line of clothing including shirts, pants, and outerwear based on the blueprints of his uniquely engineered designs. Descendant of Thieves is manufactured in a small-scaled sample room rather than conventional high output production lines. His philosophy translates to no more than 400 units per style being cut and each care label including that unique garment’s number in the limited production run. From laid-back reversible shorts to tailored jackets, Descendant of Thieves is designed for men who are effortlessly stylish rather those who seek attention.

New Brand Spotlight: Amanda Uprichard

new brand spotlight, Amanda Uprichard, fashion dresses, Amanda Uprichard dresses, Amanda Uprichard launched her eponymous fashion label eight years ago in the basement of her house in Queens, New York, with just one assistant. She wanted to be home as much as possible with her daughter, who was seven at the time.

Prior to that, she was a crazy young gal in NYC, attending the Parsons School of Design, doing way too much nightlife, singing in bands, but all the while designing, making, and selling clothes, honing her craft.

She took a break from fashion and the craziness of New York, and joined the PTA of her daughter’s school, where she learned so much from the amazing women there. Every piece of Amanda Uprichard clothing pays homage to her varied experiences in New York City.

“People ask me who I design for, and I always say I draw inspiration from everyone. All kinds of women: doctors, writers, lawyers, sisters, cousins, moms, teenagers,” says Amanda.

Amanda's clothing starts off as sculpture. She usually drapes her work in progress on a mannequin, or anyone standing close by. She and her team sculpt the item until it becomes the easy-to-wear, pull-it-on piece of clothing that her line is known for: comfortable and luxurious with a splash of sexiness.

The Amanda Uprichard woman runs her own company during the day and meets up with her girls for happy hour after that. At home she’s a power mother juggling family, work, and life. She’s well-read, travels a lot and is constantly expanding her horizon. She’s attracted to the feminine, the sophisticated, a touch of edge.
