Fashion brand Lubica Skalská offers upcycled women’s clothing hand-sewn from well-worn men’s jeans, shirts and other second hand pieces. The collection includes shirts, tops, dresses and bags, which are characterized by monochromatic batik-style prints, simplicity, wearability and simple elegance. Each piece is made of a different material, has a slightly different color and style and an original design. Prices are very decent, starting at CZK800 for skirts and CZK 1200 for dresses. In addition to clothing, Lubica also organizes creative workshops such as upcyling denim into jewelery. In the future, she plans to open her own shop with a workshop.
“I have been sewing since childhood. I see wearing upcycled, second-hand or local brands as a manifesto of disagreement with the politics of multinational brands.” – Lubica Skalská, fashion designer
