Whilst driving through Tuscany, Diana discovered this obscure and small design house, in the tiny town of Pietrasanta. The designers Alessandra Damiani and Carlo de Bernardi, both from a design background, launched their first collection together in 2010. Since then, the pair have shared a love for creating garments using vintage fabrics from historical Italian weavers.
The cloths used are dead stock, meaning they are from the ends of rolls of fabrics that were created for brands such as Yohji Yamamoto. Each garment is made in a limited number in Italy, and once sewn they are pre-washed and crushed to give a lived-in appearance.
In Australia, Thanks Dad is sold exclusively at Dilettante.
