Stylish silhouettes starting with mid century moderns ending when that Prince song skipped on a discman
Vintage clothing as a concept is still growing in popularity and that is a good thing. If clothing and accessories are sourced with care and integrity it’s a far better deal for consumers and our planet. However the picture is not always so rosy.
Step into the heady, exciting atmosphere of a retro clothes supermarket. The music is loud and the customer service is no-existent. Your eyes dart about the hangers: you’re in love. Your heart beats faster at the sight of a sliver of silk dress and a printed trouser leg poking out of a line of ‘couldn’t care less’. You excitedly prise them from a jam-packed rail. Your heart sinks: a broken zip and a lap stain from Christmas dinner circa 1969. This shopping nightmare is what some people think all preloved and vintage is about. This happened to me. This does not have to happen to you.
At Green Brick our gems are what dreams are made of! And that’s as far as the cliches go…
