30 DIY Fashion Innovations

From Luxe Hand-Painted Sneakers to Modular Backpack Accessories

— January 11, 2019 — Fashion
These DIY fashion innovations range from luxe hand-painted sneakers to modular backpack accessories that can be transformed to match a wearer's changing mood. Standouts in the footwear realm include the collaborative Oliver Cabell and Remy Carriat low-tops which boast hand-painted elements and are limited to only 30 pairs. Another notable example is the Up-Part shoe range which is sold in customizable kits. Each kit boasts shoe pieces which can be interchanged and personalized, with each piece featuring recyclable materials as an added, eco-friendly bonus.

Gucci's handpainted bespoke briefcases, Allen Young's customizable dress shirts with removable accents and Acne Studios' screen-printed t-shirt range for Spring/Summer 2018 round off this list and speak to luxury-minded consumers' desire for lavish pieces that reject minimalism and instead allow for self-expression.
