LOS ANGELES, CA - July 18, 2017 - Talon International, Inc. (OTCQB: TALN), a leading global supplier of zippers, apparel fasteners, trim and stretch technology products, announces a collaboration with vintage legend, Dr. Romanelli for DRxTALON zipper collection.
Los Angeles-based designer “DRx” Romanelli (whose real name is Darren Romanelli) is well known for collaborating with brands to create limited edition sets of unique, one of a kind, vintage pieces. Bringing his pieces into conception often involves his passion for discovering old, well made garments from a particular brand and reconstructing them into beautiful pieces of apparel that are art as muchas they are clothing.
Dr. Romanelli’s work includes collaborations with iconic brands like Coca Cola and Levi’s as well as artists like Cali Thornhill DeWitt and Madsaki. Now for the first time, he is launching a limited edition collection with Talon International Inc., the Original Zipper Company,
Known for their reputable position in the fashion space since 1893 and famous zippers like “Hookless,” Talon has been the brand that helps fasten up the jeans, jackets, shoes, and garment of trendsetters everywhere. Whether it’s Levi’s, Ralph Lauren, Eddie Bauer, All Saints, or Phillip Lim, everyone’s fingers have clenched onto a Talon zipper at some point, if not on a daily occasion. This summer, these two joined forces to launch a very special collection, DRxTalon. This is the first time Talon has partnered with a designer, and also the first time Talon’s zippers will be sold online directly to the public
With Dr. Romanelli’s affinity for vintage and magnificent pieces, and Talon’s decades of success and prominence in the vintage and zipper space, this collaboration will draw designers, creatives, and brands with an appreciation for art, time, and fashion. The collection will be available only for three months on DRxTALON.com. Anyone will be able to purchase the zippers. People will find zippers with unique names like Cheech, Vitro, The Doctor, Dyscopia, The Zebra, and more!
