Last December, we revealed some watercooler chatter that Funktional was closing its doors. No need to shed a tear for the beloved LA line, because they're simply being re-named to, uh, Re:Named. Designer Jennifer Park isn't calling it quits, either; the label also tells us she's still involved and that there's "no particular reason" for the branding revamp.
To toast their new name, the blogstar-backed brand formerly known as Funktional is hosting a major warehouse sale next weekend. From Thursday, May 29 to Saturday, May 31, outerwear and leather will be priced at $50 and under, while tops, dresses and bottoms will be slashed to $5 to $30 a pop. Learn more deets at the event's Facebook page here.
