About Re See Atelier.
Inspired by 1970s silhouettes, RE SEE ATELIER marries bohemian glamour with modern ease. Whimsical fabrics with romantic prints that any woman can feel strong and beautiful in.
Working with so many extraordinary vintage pieces at RE-SEE.com, we were blown away by the craftsmanship and quality of even the simplest vintage pieces, something we lament not seeing more of in fashion today.
Through RE SEE ATELIER, wanted to bring back this notion of ‘slow fashion.’ Each RE SEE ATELIER piece is hand-made by local Parisian artisans using salvaged fabrics.
Sustainable, Limited Edition, Made in France, and always Modern, welcome to the chic world of RE SEE Atelier.

A New Line From Paris’s Chicest Vintage Site Takes Its Cues From 1970s Yves Saint Laurent
Ask any fashion-forward French woman where she goes for her most prized secondhand wares, be they Alaïa’s form-fitting frocks or Martin Margiela’s deconstructed goods, and she’ll no doubt point you toward Re-See, the six-year-old Paris-based e-shop founded by Vogue and Self Service alums Sofia Bernardin and Sabrina Marshall. As of today, the site will also be a destination for new pieces with the launch of Re-See Atelier, a ready-to-wear line produced locally and sustainably from upcycled fabrics. “When we launched Re-See, we wanted to address overconsumption and waste in the fashion industry by encouraging the recycling of great pieces,” says Bernardin. “This is a natural extension of that.”
Years of working with collectors’ items—which, unlike many of today’s disposable garments, have managed to stand the test of time—have endowed them with a well-trained eye for spotting quality above all else. “We kept seeing these great vintage pieces over and over again, and one thing that always stuck out to us was how they were made,” Bernardin goes on. In keeping with that mind-set, everything is sewn in Paris by a small team of seamstresses (they were recommended by one of Nicolas Ghesquière’s right hands from his run at Balenciaga) and cut from silks salvaged directly from French luxury houses and factories. In a bid to return to slow fashion—“the way it was before,” Marshall notes—the rarest fabrics that allow for just a single one-of-a-kind product will be available as part of a bespoke service where clients can request unique trimmings and embellishments...
Notes from the Fashion Department
Sofia Bernardin and Sabrina Marshall (from Vogue and Self Service, respectively) of Re-See Atelier—which is hands down one of our favorite pit stops in Paris for scoring vintage—just launched a sustainable ready-to-wear line in response to the overall wastefulness of fast fashion. Inspired by big-name designers from the ’70s, the women credit Yves Saint-Laurent as their muse. Each effortless, whimsical piece is handcrafted in France using recycled fabrics salvaged from some of the most prominent fashion houses in Paris. The gypsy skirts, the fluttery dresses, the bohemian prints—everything is impeccably made and so wearable: We want all of it.
