See How LA-Based Designer Sami Miró Sources and Reimagines Rare Vintage Denim

Scouring LA for forgotten garments before reconstructing them into coveted new pieces.

Presented by adidas //Footwear 

Designer Sami Miró’s life revolves around vintage clothing. Her studio space is a trove of rare finds from old school Americana like denim and Harley Davidson T-shirts, to salvaged runway pieces which will eventually be meticulously cut, sewn and reimagined for celebrity and fashion-devotee clients. Since making LA her base of operations, Sami has scoured the sprawling city to build a network of suppliers, embroidery specialists and pattern technicians who help bring her garments to life. Giving us a behind-the-scenes look inside the world of Los Angeles vintage, Sami took HYPEBEAST out for a day to shadow her curation and design process. Starting first at her archive of clothing, Sami showed us what makes a piece worthy of obtaining before taking us to the warehouses where she spends hours sifting through old garments. Finally, we caught a glimpse of her construction process in action alongside her pattern technician Elliott Evan.

During our journey together, Sami picked out some of her favorite pieces to rock — selecting a customized retro adidas hoodie along with some throwback 2Pac track pants. She paired the look with the latest NMD XR1 W to add a modern edge and comfort for the long day ahead.
