In a statement, Luís Carvalho explains that the Marseille brand entrusted him with the development of a capsule collection developed around the theme “deconstruction-reconstruction”. Made up of 11 unique pieces, the collection gives a second life to leftover fabrics and old denim rolls from Kaporal’s warehouses and used jeans, collected in the French brand’s stores under the “Kaporal Impact Recycling” program, which, since 2014, has been collecting old jeans in order to recycle them.
Handmade in the atelier 13 A’TIPIK in Marseille, the capsule collection is not focused on “a standardized gender”, so 80% of the pieces, which bet on straight lines and oversized styles, can be worn by anyone, regardless of gender.

Indeed, throughout his career Luís Carvalho has worked closely with the denim universe on several occasions. His professional career began at the Portuguese brand Salsa, with which he recently reunited to develop a capsule collection to celebrate 15 years of Push Up jeans. This new project was an important experience, explains the creator: “As I had already worked with denim, it was a good challenge for me to make this recycled collection with my own DNA.”
