Reclaim. Repurpose. Relove.
ReLove, formerly Vintage with Lisa was founded in 2013 upon the unique and romantic designs of Lisa Lavalle. What began in Lisa’s home studio has evolved into a company that bolsters an image of free spirits and independence. While studying at Boston University, Lisa felt inspired to make her dreams a reality and began focusing on unique, one of kind pieces which would stand out from the crowd.
Every brand begins as an idea or a concept, and Lisa brought hers to life. One thing people don’t know about her is that she tends to be a perfectionist, an inveterate artist, who takes great pride in all she does. For Lisa, its always personal, which has contributed to the creation of the brand.
Lisa had always felt that there was something missing from her wardrobe and needed to bring to life that special, unique design that could make it complete. Each article of clothing satisfies that need for uniqueness by providing a trendy one of kind vintage re-designed look. Her inspirations started with headbands and keepsakes, transforming into home goods such as pillows and place mats and eventually taking to vintage clothing and now her own unique vintage inspired clothing line.
ReLove consists of all vintage clothing that is up-cycled into new and trendy pieces. During the development of ReLove, we have found that a very large percentage of unwanted garments and textiles find their way to our landfills on a daily basis. Most of these items do not decompose and form the gas CO2. This is the same gas our cars emit on a daily basis.
As a result, our company has found and will continue to find surplus textile, recycled materials made into textiles, organically grown cotton woven into textiles as well as overstock clothing that would have found its way into landfills. We utilze these items in either creating our own patterns and designs or continuing to change the original form into a new and trendy piece.
