In line with his recent LN-CC capsule, DRx Romanelli is introducing another set of upcycled furniture ideal for lived-in living spaces. In partnership with pal Sean Wotherspoon, Romanelli is introducing a selection of chairs and loveseats crafted from vintage adidas apparel to be given away as adidas’ debut RE:NEW project.

Part of adidas’ CONFIRMED app, RE:NEW is an eco-conscious effort that seeks to offer vintage and upcycled items with less detriment to the environment, a conceit that’s well within Romanelli’s wheelhouse. For this effort, Romanelli invited Wotherspoon to source primo vintage adidas garments for Romanelli to transform into a eight one-off chairs and loveseats. Everything from graphic T-shirts, nylon windbreakers, jersey sweatpants, ripstop shorts and old school EQT items will be repurposed into panels, which Romanelli will then piece together into finished products by hand within Los Angeles, filled with sustainable cushioning.

Download adidas’ CONFIRMED app to enter the giveaway beginning November 26. It ends on December 6 and winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

adidas has more hyped drops in its near future, including the forthcoming YEEZY BOOST 380 “Onyx.”
