With the intricate distressing of an iconic garment, Raquel Allegra swathes her cult following in unapologetic comfort and modern romanticism. In creating the shredding technique that has become synonymous with the namesake label, Raquel Allegra has introduced elegance to the once basic tee. Full length webbed cocoon shapes evolved out of laborious experiments with oversized vintage shirts recycled from the Los Angeles County Prison System. The ethereal and informal beauty of the pieces has garnered admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists and savvy consumers. Raquel remains dedicated to the tradition of artistry and craftsmanship in the fashion industry. With the exception of some knitwear, everything is manufactured and dyed in Los Angeles. Each tie dyed piece is individually hand tied and dyed.
