Dr. Romanelli and FRUITION continue their collaboration with their 3rd season’s “Recycled Pop Bubble Vest” collection. The vests are made of Coca Cola inspired premium vintage gear handpicked by FRUITION and made into bubble vests by none other than DRx. The vests comes in a rainbow array of colors and is available exclusively at FRUITION. I heart reworked vintage goods, they’re mostly one-offs so no one will be alike! If you’re in Vegas stop by their store to check out the collection, if not you can call them directly to place a phone order or ask questions.
