Prologue

When I was a teenager, my mom made me discover thrifting. I was always impressed by how she used old jewelry and made them into new brooches on her dress. She taught me that with creativity anything can be transformed into anything new. This philosophy is the core of 88th Company! The more I can remake from vintage items, the best it is! I use military surplus, vintage clothes or any accessories (such as buttons, pins and more) to create a one of a kind art piece! Finally, I also use surplus leather, threads and fabric. This is what I call the “-REMAKE- Philosophy of 88th Company”!

Today, we are living through the biggest environmental crisis of our time. I think, itโ€™s our responsibility to try to help in any way we can. First, I only use vintage items (expect t-shirts) and accessories for my designs. Second, all the dyes used are 100% natural such as coffee, turmeric, dirt and oil. Third, I use brown paper and recycled boxes for the packaging. I just try my best to use all the right canvases and tools for an eco friendly art pieces.

Born In Philadelphia, Since 2013

Passion for history and military design

Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love and I had embraced it with all my heart! I owe to Philly my first Army surplus store, the famous and irreplaceable: Goldberg Army & Navy store. There, I found my dream, love and passion! It is also there, where I got my first bags and made my first designs that sold fast on Etsy! The Goldberg Army & Navy store is part of the birth of 88th Company and will always be part of our history! Iโ€™m forever grateful to the store and to Philly!

Inspiration & Themes

I love to illustrates tales of courage and valor from historical characters that inspire me! I would like to celebrate women and men of all background that have made a difference in history (from 1900 to 1970). It's important that we remember what they all did, so the future would be better! It would be an honor to paint their stories on unique pieces of art that will spread their message in the 21st century.
Unfortunate wars has pushed the military to develop the most incredible technological inventions of the 20th century! I love military aircrafts, ships, submarines, tanks and all kind of vehicles. I have been fascinated by the design, technology, engineering, colors, emblems, camouflage, nose art, patches, ribbons and any kind of art form. Furthermore, military uniforms and soldiers' customization are also a great part of my inspiration to create a one of a kind art piece. Finally, itโ€™s also my way to tell incredible stories of bravery and courage from WWI & WWII. I think itโ€™s very important that we donโ€™t forget!
Civilian vehicles industries work closely with the military, so it inspires me too! I love classic cars, vintage motorcycles, bicycles, trucks, cars, trains, racing and anything old! Finally, the industrial force and racing, created their own designs, uniforms, fashion, styling and accessories that hold millions of interesting stories. So, they are an outstanding source of inspiration!
Fashion has always been influenced by icons, the military, the industrial revolution and vice versa. For example the M65 field jacket has become a classic jacket for men, that Ralph Lauren and many other brands has customized for their brands. On the other hand, uniforms for the military or for hard industrial work, have been influenced by fashion by getting colors and patterns that are fashionable. So, itโ€™s only natural for me and to be inspired by the fashion and style from 1900 to 1970.

The Art of "Remake"
