How can refurbished clothing look this great? Leave it to Ropa Doceñada (12-Na), a fashion firm based in both Argentina and Chile, to do the work. You might remember them from a brief post a few years ago, but you have to see what they've been up to lately. Even if you're not in South America, the ideas for clothing refurbishing are something to have in mind.If you don't know the brand yet, Ropa Doceñada is a clothing firm that works with the concept of 'clothes re-interpretation' turning old pieces into new, incredibly cool ones, which are produced with tailors and seamstresses and without industrial workshops.
