She is a talented singer who followed in her mother's footsteps, but thanks to the closures and isolations, she found a new passion.

The new local brand One Peace Revalation is a particularly chic example in the category of positive corona side effects.

His story begins with a kimono sewn in the long and free hours of closures from an old quilt that no one wanted, and within a few months became an all-existing label offering unique handmade pieces on pure recycled vintage fabrics, sold not only here in Israel but also in Paris, Hong Kong and soon around Europe.



The person behind the charming venture is

Shirel Sage

, 43, a mother of three and a French-Israeli-American singer who immigrated to Israel 15 years ago, and by the time the Corona era began, she had managed to maintain an international career alongside starting a family in Israel.

An act in a quilt that has been passed down from generation to generation in the family until the moment when Sage's three children vetoed its use.

"I was born in Paris to an American Christian mother and a Tunisian Jewish father," Sage says in a special interview with Walla!

Fashion.

"My mother is a singer, Gene Manson, and at the time she had a serious pop career in France and that's how she met my father, a film producer from Paris who worked with Fellini among others."

Shortly after Shiral's birth, the two divorced, and she moved with her mother to the US with her family in Los Angeles, California. And the piano.



At the age of 12 she had already participated in a competition of the Jewish community in France and won first place, and at the age of 18 she decided to immigrate to Israel, convert to Judaism and continue to cultivate music.

"I was in the cycle of Miri Mesika and Keren Peles in Rimon, I realized that was my vocation and I decided to dedicate myself to it."

A lead role in the musical 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame', Emerald, led her to perform at any point in Europe and even to taste a bit of China, but the homesickness increased and the connection to the country was stronger than anything.

"I still fly to shows, even with my mother, but I left my career for Zionist reasons. Two years ago my grandmother passed away, and we found out she was actually a Jew from Poland, the Boronowski family, and she was adopted after World War II and kept it a secret all these years. "I need to convert. This piece of history has closed the circle for me."

Just when Shirel was starting to record a new album, which means a daily recording studio schedule with a team of musicians, the corona arrived and with it the closures and isolations. “I saw the musicians were very creative in finding other things to make a living and I really wanted to too.

But as someone who only sang all my life I did not know what to do.

I had an old cotton blanket full of patches from the sixties in a crazy color that has been in the family for generations, and in my house no one wanted them to see it, they vetoed it for me.

I had an idea to make something different out of it and I went with her to a seamstress I knew along with an old kimono I had and I told her - 'Make me one'.

"When the kimono was ready, I was really excited and brought it home, but the reaction was that even removing the garbage, they do not approve of wearing it."

One day Shirel went out with the new kimono for a trip at sea and within an hour four people stopped to ask where the lottery was from.

"I decided to make more and ordered vintage fabrics from the fifties, sixties and seventies. It was important for me to fall in love with colors, it's like a song for me. I made several new versions that are different from each other. That's why I called it One Peace Revelation. I turned to Ovlac, a photographer I knew "He made music and became a good friend, and I asked him to help me with the photography of the items. He fell so in love with the idea and we became partners. I also don't like being alone on stage and that suited me well."

So there are pieces, a partner and beautiful pictures, but how did you get to sell so quickly in Israel, Paris and Hong Kong?


"I know Elise Juilliard, the owner of the Numero 13 boutique, from the neighborhood in Neve Tzedek. I showed her things and she really lit up. She immediately ordered ten pieces from me and everything was sold within a week. Later she linked me to a boutique in Paris and Hong Kong. Luckily I am a collector. "Of vintage clothes from the fifties and sixties, so I just unpacked piles of items, all to satisfy the new orders."

The labels also have a section, what's the story?


"We wanted to put on each item something that represents Israel and we located an amazing collection of old pennies, so each item has a penny attached. The label has old slides from music photographs, something else from me and dusty."



Recently the two also returned from an exhibition in Paris, where they arrived with 120 kimonos and everything was sold, "We have orders from 35 boutiques across Europe, including Marseille in Paris, Italy, Spain, Austria. There is full work."



In Israel, the brand maintains a store via Instagram, with most items modeled by Sage, with a price range between NIS 1,200 for vests, and up to NIS 2,800 for a more elegant kimono, which also comes with a tie belt.



When will you have time to sing with all the intense work on the designs?


"Next month at the President's House in a solemn ceremony for the absorption of new immigrants in Israel."
