Dr Romanelli “Atlantic Yachting” Collection for Project Wooster

Project Wooster was a special section, hosted by Nick Wooster, at the recent Project Tradeshow in Las Vegas. An impressive line-up of brands was presented in the section, among them also Dr. Romanelli‘s new ‘Atlantic Yachting’ Collection.

“The textiles were sourced through Captain Alexander Pincus and his Atlantic Yachting business in Manhattan NYC. We were at dinner a few months back and Alex offered to ship me a selection of his older sails that had been in storage , some dating back to the late 80′s . I had never worked with sails before but was inspired by the idea of reworking them into a collection of blazers, shorts and bags for PROJECT WOOSTER. I was very intrigued by the spinnakers which help move the sailboat faster downwind. The spinnaker is often a colorful sail and it was amazing to see the effect the salt has on the deterioration of the fabric revealing the under-layer of materials. I tried to mimic this visual by selecting lighter textiles for the DRx garments revealing the bold linings via the blazers and shorts.”

The collection features blazers, pants, shorts and some bags.
