ARCHIVIO J. M. Ribot is a researching project by Karim Fares.
It is split in two clothing capsule :
_Archivio J.M. Ribot , an handmade clothing capsule of limitededition garments made with ancient textiels and buttons.
_RIforma, a series of one of a kind pieces created by combining antique parts of clothing from the early 20th century, turning their priginal function into something different, giving them new meaning while preserving the history and tactile memory.
All the pieces from the project are marked by the flow of time. They
have been handmade in Italy out of antique textiles.
Every detail, from the aged buttons to the antique fabrics and
sewing threads, is the result of a fine research made throughout
several years (not only) in Europe.
They have been made using a slow sewing technique without
involving any overlock machines, the most of the garment was
completely made by hand according to the oldest traditions.
Each piece is unique and any imperfection must be considered as a
precious element that has been gifted by time.
