Italian sportswear label Paul & Shark, produced and distributed by the Dama company, has officially launched a limited-edition upcycled line called Re-Sail. The line consists of a series of anoraks made from pieces of re-engineered discarded sails. The Varese-based label has launched Re-Sail at an event held in Milan during the menswear fashion week

The Re-Sail urban anoraks are characterised by large inner labels and feature numbers, logos and other sailing-inspired details. Each jacket is unique, since the availability of discarded sails is variable and limited.

The jackets are already available at select Paul & Shark monobrand stores, as part of the Spring/Summer 2023 collection.

Paul & Shark is a certified plastic-free company, and is included in the list of 100 Italian green companies drawn up by Kon Group and Credit Suisse.

Andrea Dini, CEO of Paul & Shark, has highlighted a new fabric technology developed by the label’s in-house R&D office, which created the first prototype of a cotton wool derived from the label’s production offcuts. “I’m convinced that, within a year, we will be ready to produce the first clothes using this cotton wool, not made of recycled polyester,” said Dini.
Paul & Shark has reported a sales growth of 18.5% in fiscal 2022, reaching €150 million, of which 10% were generated in Italy and 90% on other markets.

“As we await the definitive reopening of the Chinese market – one of our primary commercial regions – after repeated lockdowns, I’m looking forward to significant growth rates for us in sub-Saharan Africa in the near future,” said Dini. Paul & Shark has opened several monobrand stores in the region, in Lagos (Nigeria), Abidjan (Ivory Coast) and Kinshasa (Democratic Republic
“The next directly operated Paul & Shark store will open in London in early September 2023, on Regent Street
