ALFA MITO DNA IS IN YOUR JEANS
UNIQUE FASHION PROJECT CELEBRATES ALFA ROMEO'S GENEALOGY AND RAISES FUNDS
Conceived to celebrate the unique genealogy passed from the breathtaking Alfa 8C Competizione supercar to the head-turning Alfa MiTo, the Italian sporting car manufacturer, Alfa Romeo, paired up with TV's fashion expert, Louise Roe, to challenge two up-and-coming fashion designers to create a line of women's jeans that would be as cool and desirable as the Alfa MiTo and, and at the same time, raise money for charity.
The result is a one-off series of limited edition skinny fit jeans – available via www.mitojeans.co.uk - that echo the genealogy concept by deconstructing first generation jeans to create new, high fashion jeans complete with a high quality leather waistband and Alfa Romeo red stitching.
London-based fashion designers Bjork and McElligott, who have already created outfits for a number of celebrities, also introduced other distinct and attractive styling touches including embroidered rear pockets – one featuring the serpent from Alfa Romeo's iconic badge on the right plus their own logo on the left pocket – to create recognisable and distinct jeans.
Significantly most Alfa MiTos feature a DNA button that alters the responsiveness of the accelerator, brakes and traction to suit different driving conditions – Dynamic, Normal and All Weather.
Sophie McElligott said: "The DNA button gave us an extra framework to operate within. The Alfa MiTo's parentage from the Alfa 8C and the concept that DNA is in your genes made the project's beneficiary an easy choice."
The designers chose the charity Jeans for Genes to profit from the sale of the high class jeans and found two boutique retail outlets in London through the charity's patron, Donna Ida.
Priced at £75 a pair, the designer jeans are expected to raise vital funds for Jeans for Genes.
