We encourage you to be creative and find your own style that expresses you the most. Fashion is about you; picking clothes and combining outfits is a matter of personal choice and taste.
Our vintage garments come from all over the world, and are chosen from thousands of other pieces with special care
We truly believe that combining old clothes of different eras with new elements of contemporary fashion offers the chanse of revealing a specific and individual style.
That is why we provide small series of contemporary garments along with our vintage supply for both men and women.This enables the free crossing of styles , and gives you the chanse to find the pieces and accesories that reflect your personality the most.
