Of course we love vintage in all it's many shapes and forms, and it offers such a unique and stylish option as well as being a really sustainable and conscious choice. There is a whole other level of vintage glamour and luxury and that is designer vintage. There are, of course, many highly valuable collectors items such as a vintage Chanel purse or a vintage Hermès bag but there are actually many more accessible and affordable pieces of designer vintage clothing and designer vintage accessories in our range.
With that in mind, this week I bring you my Style Spotlight focussing on Designer Vintage, to show you some of my favourite pieces currently in stock at www.myvintage.co.uk so let's dive right in...
Designer vintage sunglasses from Yves Saint Laurent in an oversized rectangular shape. Wine/burgundy coloured metal rims with intricate metal work at each side and resin arms marked with YSL logo. Inner arm marked YSL 6159/K/S, CDJHJ, 63-13, 125> Made in Italy. The hinges are quite loose but this doesn’t affect the sunglasses when worn. Rose tinted lenses. Measures approx 6” wide.
Amazing vintage designer dress from one of the ultimate fashion labels - Courreges. This slightly a-liner shift dress has an unusual side button closure and is in a fantastic colour block style with white, lemon and light denim blue panels.
