It can be so tiring trying to keep up with the latest fashions, and without being glued to Vogue every minute (which I must admit I probably am!) it seems like if you blink you’ll miss something. However one trend that has stood the test of time in more than one sense of the word is vintage! Whether it’s a shabby chic wardrobe or a beautiful vintage fur coat, it’s everywhere we look and we are completely obsessed with it!
Being based at the beautiful Cotes Mill (home of our parent company deVOL kitchens) we are so lucky to be surrounded by so many gorgeous vintage goodies every day! The basement of the Mill is a treasure trove of beautifully looked after vintage furniture pieces, everything from dining tables to snow sleighs – it’s definitely worth a visit! This kind of inspiration that we get to see every day is just one of the many reasons we have completely fallen in love with vintage! The thought of giving a garment or piece of furniture a whole new life is so exciting to us and ‘refashioning’ (as we like to call it!) an item is even more appealing to us because we get to make it totally unique!
All of this beautiful inspiration lead us to our own selection of vintage clothing! All our items are hand-picked by us, we don’t care if they need a button replacing, a seam re-stitching or just a trip to the dry cleaners we are dedicated to giving them a new life – because let’s face it, you don’t throw away Chanel! Our selection of Balenciaga, Diane Von Furstenberg, Mui Mui, D&G and many more are up on our Vintage page now!
