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!
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.
