What is Modern Vintage Fashion

Vintage fashion is back in vogue. This is convincing every day. Interest in “clothes with past” definitely increased over the past few years. And for good reason! Like wine, some clothing and accessories become more valuable after years of “aging” especially when it comes to big brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent. They carry a piece of history and the romantic spirit of the past.

Vintage style today has become a source of inspiration to many of the biggest names in fashion – Vivienne Westwood, Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Mcqueen, Valentino. Many Hollywood stars are passionate fans of vintage fashion. Such are the sisters Olsen, Kate Moss, Julia Roberts and one of the most famous style – Dita von Teese. And since in Fashion Days are also fans of vintage fashion, we decided to tell you more about her and share some interesting facts.

  • What does “vintage”?

The word “vintage” is derived from the French word “vintage”, which literally means “aged wine”.

  • What makes a vintage item?

Clothing and accessories are considered vintage if manufactured between 1920 and 1990. Everything before 1920 are considered antique and everything after 1990 – retro. Over time, these years will change. It is important to know that the items are most frequently used. That’s what makes each item unique in itself. Of course, there are those who are brand new, but they are extremely hard to find.

  • Vintage as an investment

Buying a vintage goods has become an investment as time any such product becomes antique, whose price jumps threefold. Therefore, items with past many times more expensive than what we see in stores. For example, a dress worn by Audrey Hepburn is much more expensive than a dress from the latest collection of Versace, as it brings the spirit of a bygone time and is no longer in production. The value of the garment is directly related to trends at the moment. If a garment or accessory do not fit into current trends, the price rose again as the item is easily accessible.

What is perhaps most valuable is that each vintage clothing or accessory inherited memories in a bygone time. People fall in love not so much the product itself but in its past. Very often these are not just fashion benefits, and part of someone’s history. Owning vintage items is something exciting!
