INDIVIDUALITY - A CORE PRINCIPLE
' WE FOUNDED no_editions TO CREATE INDIVIDUALLY UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT PRODUCTS - CLOTHING, FASHION, ACCESSORIES, OBJECTS - AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO FAST AND MASS PRODUCED FASHION AND LUXURY
DESIGNING AND PRODUCING A COAT OR DRESS 100 TIMES WITH EACH ONE HAVING A DIFFERENT, INDIVIDUAL DESIGN ELEMENT - NOT PRODUCING 100 TIMES THE IDENTICAL COAT OR DRESS
CREATING A UNIQUE IDENTITY AND LAYERED VALUE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL PRODUCT - ESTABLISHING A MORE CONSIDERED AND CONSCIOUS APPROACH TO MAKING AND CONSUMING EACH INDIVIDUAL PRODUCT
THE LUXURY OF OWNING SOMETHING UNIQUE, PERSONAL, MADE FOR YOU - HOWEVER SMALL OR BIG ‘
Every item, style or object that carries the no_editions brand name is offered only once with a unique print, design pattern or decoration, while each product’s silhouette is produced in series. Each unique item's serial number is part of its label and all designs and series remain part of a perpetually growing online archive at www.noeditions.com
no_editions print or application designs are based on specific concepts, comprising one or several series. Each series is listed online with a title, information about the style, material, and the amount of items in this series - every item is labeled with this information, along with its unique serial number and the no_editions logo.
The differences between print or application designs within a series are created and developed based on various artistic, personal, aesthetic or sequential criteria, and are not the result of random manual or mechanical finishing. The differences can be very visible or very subtle, depending on the series.
no_editions - ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP AND MODERN TECHNOLOGY
MADE IN ITALY AND SWITZERLAND
' WE CHOSE TO PRODUCE IN ITALY AND SWITZERLAND - USING EXCLUSIVELY THE MOST LUXURIOUS ITALIAN, FRENCH OR SWISS RAW MATERIALS - TO ENSURE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS, STRICTEST ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION REGULATIONS AND LABOUR LAWS
AS THE LEADING COUNTRIES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LUXURY FASHION, LEATHER GOODS AND ACCESSORIES, ITALY AND SWITZERLAND OFFER THE MOST EXCEPTIONAL RESOURCES, COMBINING ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP AND LATEST TECHNOLOGIES '
no_editions - HANDMADE LEATHER GOODS AND BAGS
Artisanal labour and craftsmanship are a fundamental part of our production - all no_editions leather goods and handbags are hand sewn / saddle stitched - FRENCH COUTURE SELLIER - made in Switzerland and feature hand-forged solid silver hardware.
Very few brands can still produce and offer this handmade quality and no_editions is the first brand to combine the sellier’s craftsmanship with hand-forged solid Argentium silver hardware.
The no_editions signature silver handles, as well as the silver design elements, plaques and foot plates establish a distinct and unique identity.
no_editions silver hardware and silver jewelry is made by combining modern 3D modeling and artisanal, sculpting techniques.
no_editions is produced in Italy and Switzerland ( leather goods and select bespoke services ).
We follow responsible production principles, working with small to midsize manufacturers, often family-run businesses, and artisans - requiring transparency from all our suppliers.
Our raw materials are sourced from highly specialised suppliers in Italy, France, Switzerland, or Austria, Germany - concentrating on renewable, biodegradable or recycled materials and reducing transport
no_editions - MADE-TO-ORDER LUXURY
' WE STARTED no_editions AS AN ONLINE, MADE-TO-ORDER BUSINESS IN 2007, OFFERING DESIGN SERIES OF INDIVIDUALLY UNIQUE ITEMS - EACH ITEM ONLY PRODUCED, FINISHED, PRINTED OR EMBROIDERED BASED ON A CLIENT'S ORDER - CARRYING ONLY A MINIMAL STOCK OF RAW MATERIALS AND PRE-FINISHED PRODUCTS
WE VALUE THE MAKE-TO-ORDER, A CONSCIOUS ACT TO CHOOSE, DEFINE AND COMMIT TO AN ORDER AND WAIT FOR PRODUCTION, ABOVE A PRINCIPLE OF INSTANT AVAILABILITY AND OVER STOCK
INSPIRING CULTURAL CHANGE, REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS '
no_editions made-to-order luxury - produced on order - reducing excess inventory drastically - less wasted material.
Unique, personal, luxurious products, that actively support waste reduction. A unique item with serial number retains value longer, increases resale value and our online archive of all series and artworks at www.noeditions.com creates additional context.
no_editions - SILVER HARDWARE
REUSE | RESELL | RECYCLE
Since 2015 we use real silver for our hardware, decorations, or embroideries on clothing, accessories and leather goods .
STERLING 925, ARGENTIUM 935 / 960, FINE SILVER 999
A dress with real silver chains or silver sequins, a handbag with a hand forged solid silver handle, have intrinsic value, a great touch, will age and wear with personality and always keep a certain material value, encouraging recycling. Throwing away an item with real silver would likely go against most people's principles.
PRECIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL
ARTISANAL AND MODERN
All no_editions silver is ethically sourced through licensed suppliers of the ARGENTIUM silver brand - most is already made from previously recycled silver - part of a circular process.
no_editions - RECLAIMED LUXURY
We understand that people love different brands and we offer a selection of curated vintage items of other luxury brands - the RECLAIMED SERIES - many vintage items of well-known luxury brands ( clothing or leather goods ) are available in very good conditions, often not or very little used.
We offer custom silver design options for these pre-loved / vintage items and mark them with a RECLAIMED SERIES number.
Keeping existing, unused or barely used luxury products from ending as waste.
