Project H – A Collection of T-Shirts, Tanks and Shorts Made of Vintage Hermès Scarves

Union Los Angeles received the debut collection of new brand Project H this week. Headed by Nino Scalia, Project H makes use of vintage Hermès scarves and turns them into T-shirts, tanks and shorts. The background of the new brand is a rather compelling personal story of Scalia, whose grandmother collected the scarves from a young age, passed them on to his mother who then passed them on to him. The first scarf in the collection was purchased in 1954 in Paris and as you can imagine, the line uses some beautiful deadstock patterns from the last 60 years. The first batch of tees, tanks and shorts has now released, with each piece bearing the information where the designer’s mother and/or grandmother has bought the scarf and in which year. You can purchase the pieces now here.
