Old Skool baby!

Old Skool baby!

The circular economy is on the rise, and fashionista’s increasingly take their responsibility by focusing on second-hand and vintage clothing. Nowadays, every street corner has a vintage store, where you can buy clothes or furniture.

However, most stores sell second-hand clothes from last year’s collection. Is that really vintage?

Nope.

Real vintage is clothing from the 1920s to the 1970s/1980s. Items older than that are called antique, everything that is younger should be called second-hand. Also, don’t confuse ‘retro’ with ‘vintage’. Retro items are products that are made to look like vintage...

Another unsustainable part of the December month are the gifts. And I’m not just talking about the gift wrapping (plastic, single use, lots of trash), but also about the gifts themselves.

Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek

Even though fall has only just begun, and winter is yet to come, we (I) can’t wait for spring to come around again. Longer days, better weather, better and better moods, new trends; what’s not to love? So, to keep you from spiraling into your winter depression, here’s a little sneak peek of the fall and summer 2020 trends!

We see a few continuations of the current season, with 80s vibes and a lot of leather. We see the usual trends (shorts and dresses), but also some newcomers, like the three-piece pantsuit, and bridal wear (also for non-brides!).
