Although there’s a new fashion launch nearly every week, some fashionistas remain true to what’s already in their closets for years to come. Still, people get tired of their wardrobe, but can shop vintage for what's “new” to them, and Parks Project is welcoming customers to its vintage shop filled with nostalgic ‘90s style.
Parks Project is a brand that specializes in upcycling one-of-a-kind vintage park tees from landfills to extend the lifespan of a garment, giving new life to retro pieces. Not to mention, the brand directly funds projects within different parks with each collection drop.
According to a representative of Parks Projects, the brand offers unique vintage pulls once every month.
“For sourcing, we rummage and sort through tons of tees throughout Los Angeles to find the most nostalgic pieces for our vintage shop collection,” the brand told Bustle via email. “We drop a new collection of vintage finds on the third Thursday of every month, and each collection sells out by the next drop. For Earth Month, we decided to do 2 drops to encourage upcycling. Each piece is truly unique and one-of-a-kind and we’re thrilled that our customers have responded so positively to the program.”
The monthly launches are exclusive to the Parks Projects website, and each item is the only one of its kind. To find a nostalgic (and renewed) tee, here are all the best pieces from Parks Project.
