FADE OUT Label “Cretino Fosforescente” Capsule Collection
The collection renews its eco-sustainable brand philosophy by blending vintage and design in a fresh, urban, and unisex collection.
The name Cretino Fosforescente was created by Gabriele D'Annunzio for Marinetti — the founder of the Italian Futurism movement from which FADE OUT Label adopts its energy, grit and will to propose originality in a saturated fashion market.
Cretino Fosforescente is a collection of geometric cuts that exalt the body and its movement. In addition to the dynamic vibe of Futurism, the collection is inspired by the practicality and aesthetics of workwear, the raw-cut fabrics typical of the punk movement, and street art graffiti.
The fabrics and colors are defined by vibrant tones of neon-yellow and orange, and are printed on two different types of organic cotton. The denim that is dyed pink and has hand-bleached macro-lettering, wraps around the body just like a slogan that urges immediate action NOW. The typical patchwork of FADE OUT Label has been reinterpreted by combining various shades of black and blue denim that is sewn together inside out.
All processing techniques are strictly hand-made at the FADE OUT Label's Berlin atelier, making each piece unique, repeatable, but always different.

Fashion Films

A unisex line of exclusive clothing and accessories made from deconstructed vintage using handicraft methods, where the patina of used material recombined in a fresh and different way creates new unrepeatable alchemies. FADE OUT embodies a dump-to-hanger ethos and celebrates responsible recycling of materials and innovative designs. We do not believe in the timelines of the fashion system but in timeless creativity and in the originality of every single idea and item. We therefore create permanent collections to which new items are added every season. We create comfortable, unisex garments, which due to the use of recycled material become hand-crafted one- offs, repeatable but always different. All FADE OUT items adapt to various occasions and to different personalities due to their simple yet well studied oversized fit. The originality of our idea and our handicraft approach to both the creative process and the production itself outdare the overproduction, conformism and exploitation of present day’s fashion system. FADE OUT’s belief in sustainability of both material and actual production leads us to a direct relationship to our costumers, which allows custom- tailoring and made-to-measure garments.
