ABOUT THE BRAND
Launched in 2013 as DE LA COMMUNE by Reese De Luca as an androgynous designer loungewear brand using the finest fabrics and meticulously created fits.
After a two year hiatus and a complete retooling of the brand, I relaunched in 2020 as a gender-free brand with a more focused direction in lifestyle loungewear.
by REESEDELUCA was made for everyone and anyone and continues to push the evolution of refined leisure. Using only all-natural botanical fabrics like Cotton, Tencel, Bamboo, and Modal, my collection is made for your daily life, whether you’re lounging around the house, hanging out with friends or out on the town. Lifestyle loungewear takes you through your day no matter the situation and makes you wonder, why does comfort have to come at the expense of looking good?
As a brand, it’s important to pay it forward. The collection is made in small batches in a socially compliant workshop and pays my workers fairly. I use only organic GOTS-certified dyes and plant 1 tree for each transaction on my website.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
An alum from FIDM in Los Angeles and fashion industry veteran, Reese started his fashion career by turning his obsession with Juicy Couture into a major stepping stone in his career. After just one month of interning, Reese quickly moved up to the assistant designer.
In 2004, Reese’s artistic expression helped him win the MTV show produced by Ashton Kutcher, “You’ve Got A Friend”. His personality was just as impressive as his fashion expertise, outshining the other featured contestants on the show.
Reese’s design caught the eye of the Queen of Fashion herself, Victoria Beckham. Her love for his fabrics and techniques sparked a unique friendship amongst the two.
This was just the start of his noteworthy résumé which includes: Head Designer for William Rast, Design Director for Buffalo Jeans, as well as his solo capsule collections.
Reese took the knowledge he learned and guidance from noteworthy friend's positions and started his own brand.
Reese is ready to take the fashion world by storm and it’s important for Reese to “pay it forward” and inspire others.
With his inventive use of fabrics and attention to detail, the energy of Reese will be what moves the fashion industry forward.
