About us

The Brand

_We are 1/OFF

1/OFF is a fashion label rooted in the upcycle movement. Celebrating the legacy of grand designers; we transform high-end vintage garments into contemporary design.

Our vision is based on the ideology that fashion items are no longer disposable, but part of an eternal cycle of inspiration.

(Re)thinking vintage garments of iconic brands like YSL, Chanel, Burberry, Ralph Lauren and many others. We see ourselves as part of a fashion ecosystem, helping brands to extend the longevity of their pieces, and enabling people to actively participate in creating circularity.

Our designs can be described as fun and eclectic urbanwear. We love to play with contrasts to connect the past with the future, the fun with the formal and the gutter with the catwalk.

_A collection of unique designs

Our pieces are (re)created by hand by a team of talented couture makers. We work with individual creative ateliers who master their own specialties. It is a collaboration between the know-how of Paris and the contemporary vision of Amsterdam. 

_Founded by Renée van Wijngaarden

Originally from Amsterdam but before, I was living in Paris and working for the luxury vintage e-tailer Vestiaire Collective. There I got inspired by seeing on first hand how the second hand designer pieces still have such good quality and the thrill of finding that unique pieces that reflects your personality and the journey it takes to find it.  Along the way, I got more and more into vintage shopping and treasure hunting. By seeing large warehouses of unwanted luxury products I decided to create a brand that would use these discarded clothes, extending their lifecycle and helping to make the industry more circular with our love for contemporary design.
