One of One Vintage Furniture and Home Furnishing Lovingly restored, whilst maintaining a sense of a life well lived, think of Niente di Nuovo as an old family friend, with exquisite, yet eclectic taste. Niente di Nuovo was born through an obsession with iconic design, vintage fashion, and travel from around the world, Damian’s career as a fashion stylist led into a discovery of vintage and specialized clothing around the world. The world of football has long been at the forefront of sustainability in the clothing world. Dating back to the end of the 00’s the key players have been manufacturing both performance and replica shirts out of recycled plastic bottles.
Adding to this cultural mix, is a passion for sport and the uniforms, with an emphasis on the worldwide phenomenon of “football” or soccer as I’ve now come to know it, and the endless combinations of color, fabric and textural opportunities of reusing the jerseys in unique design language. Over the past twenty years Damian has been developing a new football sensibility where the once performance led product takes on a new life. Each jersey is hand selected and judging each shirt on its own merit, from significance, rarity, condition, age and the intangible to repair, refine and enhance using artisan techniques. It is important for us to subvert yet respect the tribalism of team colours.
Meaning ‘Nothing New’ in Italian we are taking football jerseys and repairing any imperfection to turn these once loved shirts into new and progressive items for lovers of craftsmanship and the beautiful game.
Taking inspiration from the Japanese term boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use.
