Over the years, Vintage fashion has become more popular perhaps because of nostalgia or because of the beautiful singularity of the garments that cannot be duplicated easily. To us, Vintage clothing is so much more than just “old used clothes". It is history, and art, amazing craftsmanship and the stories of those who have come before us. Stories often untold, but shown in a desirable piece of art. With owning and wearing vintage clothing we are keeping those people, the times they've lived in, their stories and that special artistry alive.
Despite of all the mystery, fantastic craftsmanship, singularity and history behind each piece, wearing Vintage means to us escaping the standardization of style and fabrics, assert stylistically speaking. Faced with a globalized overproduction, synonymous with uniformity of style and loss of quality, Vintage fashion is a fantastic opportunity leaving the big Department Stores behind creating an unique and personal style. To us wearing Vintage is an alternative to consumption more committed, transparent and ecological.
Vintage stores do not produce, we only give a second life to garments. Shopping Vintage is a conscious decision in combating mass industry and giving our planet a break. In other words: Vintage fashion is made to last. If you invests in quality vintage pieces, you may have that item often times for decades. Most times it holds its resale value quite well, and the majority of pieces appreciate over time.
Vintage is an investment in both: your wardrobe and the environment.
