Vintage Week here at FYP

So as most know, next week in Paris is ‘Haute Couture Week Spring/Summer 2014’.

Already the shows have kicked off in Milan, and this year’s offerings are as amazing as ever!

However, here at FYP, we are taking a retrospective step back and before diving into the world of lace, luxury and couture next week,

we are going to be having a Vintage/ Thrift store week, focusing specifically

on one of our favourite quartiers in Paris- Le Marais.

Each day, FYP will let you into one of our best kept secrets of where we bag the best vintage items.

Whether you are searching for a pair of Vintage Levi jeans, or perhaps a Classic ‘Timeless’ Chanel handbag,

FYP will give you the ultimate vintage/thrift shopping guide to

Le Marais to help you find exactly what you are looking for!

Shhh! Don’t tell everyone- this secret is between us and you!

Let’s start with a bit of Lux!

                                                                                                                                                                      La Jolie Garde-Robe

Fashion in Paris

Small, exclusive-feeling and known mainly among designers and fashion-loving locals

rather than the tourist-flooded stores in the Haut Marais,

La Jolie Garde-Robe is one-of-a-kind. As with its garde-robe (antique wardrobe),

the clothes you’ll find here are delicate and refined designer pieces from a mix of French labels

including Chanel, YSL, Céline, Charles Jourdan and Hermès.

There’s a special emphasis on ‘60s bits, so if you’ve a hankering for a shift dress or cat’s eye sunglasses, here’s your chance.
