Unimpressed Studios, an LA based Italian sustainability clothing brand just released their SS24 line and we recently sat down with the mastermind behind the 60s and 70s vintage textiles clothing brand sweeping the fashion scene all over the country and beyond. If you want to know more about this collection and the mindset behind its inspiration keep reading below to learn all about how Vittoria Buraschi did it:  

Tell us about this collection.  

The “Safe Space” collection is inspired by the strong silhouettes and colors of the Space Age, with references to André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin. Playing with the concept of ‘‘Space’’, I extended the physical meaning of a far distant place on Lunar soil with the closest, but immaterial, Space within our head as a Space to still explore and keep protected at all costs.  

Safe Space is also a celebration of a regained sense of belonging to One Self again: feeling safe with One’s own thoughts and beliefs. Not compromising, not watering down, not adapting to the norm. 

All the clothes are hand made here in Los Angeles, using bouncy materials like heavy Cady and double Crêpe in order to replicate the defined shapes of the Era.  

These fabrics – sourced in Paris – are all dead stock materials from LVMH brands such as Dior and others. Other fabrics include vintage remains from original Italian fabrics sourced in Florence, with original Italian vintage buttons from the 60s Era. 

Where does the brand name come from? 

Growing up in the art capitals of Siena and Florence, I was constantly surrounded by the masterpieces of the past. The streets themselves hum with the creative energy of legendary figures like Cosimo de Medici, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo.  

It’s an inspiring but humbling experience for any artist. The constant comparison fuels a relentless pursuit of excellence, a burning question: how can I even approach such heights? It’s a powerful motivator, a constant drive to create work that will stand the test of time.  

Therefore, it takes something truly exceptional to spark a deep creative fire in me…I’m simply left Unimpressed most of the times.

Who is your ideal girl? Describe her?  

She is the modern Barbarella, electric and analog at the same time. Fearless, not afraid to speak out loud, empowered and a bit careless too. She enjoys life, biting the apple and eating that whole. She has multiple girlfriends and goes clubbing at the Dalston Superstore (yes but during the 2014 era).

What is fashion to you? 

Fashion is escapism from reality, where everything is possible. You can create something from scratch, with your bare hands, and make it anything you want it to be. It’s that alchemic process from blank page to final constructed garment. Fashion transforms you, conceals you, emphasizes you, makes you feel like a god.  

What’s your favorite piece from this collection?  

The Lunar Orbit Set in the Spremuta Orange. With a loud Blue Mod Daisies shirt and its necktie. Or just naked underneath.  

Who are your SHEROES?  

Yves Saint Laurent, Raffaella Carrà, Marchesa Luisa Casati, Renato Zero.  

Leave us with your favorite fashion moment.  

That time Rihanna wore a Dior bag I designed, or dancing at a couture party with Stephen Jones, in Shanghai.
