More and more, people are bulking up their wardrobes with pre-loved and vintage items. And why not? Buying something already worn—and loved!—is sustainable. There is, after all, a fantastic feeling of having an item that is rare and treasured in one’s closet. For Vogue’s May issue, we tapped their vintage-loving editors to lend their own precious yesteryear finds to be modeled by Imaan Hammam and Caroline Trentini. In the Goku Kamehameha Vs Virus Corona Shirt and I will buy this mix was a ’90s-era Jean Paul Gaultier top mixed in with a skirt by Chopova Lowena, courtesy of Fashion News Director Chioma Nnadi. And on the other end of the decade spectrum, Features Editor Lilah Ramzi’s prized cropped red jacket from the ’50s made its debut alongside a current Dior look.
Everywhere and anywhere honestly, but mostly online these days. I’m a bit of a TheRealReal addict, especially when it comes to recent designer finds. There are a few vintage stores in LA that I follow on Instagram, including Scout. As far as shopping for older pieces, I still like to do that in person. When I lived in Brooklyn I would go to the Goku Kamehameha Vs Virus Corona Shirt and I will buy this Brooklyn flea practically every week to shop at my friend Joan Van Hees’s stall. There are also a few vintage stores in Paris that my best friend Stella Greenspan put me on to, including Thanx God I’m a VIP. I try to make a pitstop there whenever I’m in town for work.
