Vintage Heaven: Did these treasures fall out of the sky?

June 19th, 2012

NO. THEY didn’t! Although you would be forgiven if you thought so.

So how is it that we have new vintage arrivals all the time, every week? It’s because we make two to three major buying trips a year, sourcing our a** off for these vintage goodies! We travel the world, carefully selecting choice vintage pieces using our very, very discerning eyes.

And when the job is done, we ship it all back to Singapore, where you can enjoy it, touch it, try it, see it with your own eyes.

All the clothing is one-off, as it’s vintage, unique. They can thus be altered to fit.

So come down and try on that piece you’re eying before someone else snaps it up first and you never see it again for the rest of your life. -.-

This album features a friend we used in one of our previous shoots – Linda Lim of White Antler. She was in our “Notes from the Secretariat” photo shoot!

Check it out!
