“Philip Lim and I went vintage shopping at the Manhattan Vintage Fair last summer. It was a lot of fun. He chose this dress for me.” - Natalie Joos (via The Coveteur)

A bunch of us from the men’s and crewcuts design teams went out to L.A. recently for a Spring ’12 research trip. The Inspiration event was held in Long Beach, California, at the Queen Mary and is very vintage-menswear specific. A lot of menswear companies head out here for inspiration. There are a bunch of booths set up from Japanese labels and vintage collectors from all over the country, as well as the UK. You can find more info on it here http://inspirationla.com/.
Every year we take a design trip to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, which is set up on the second Sunday of every month. This is a big industry thing to go to, especially in menswear. People from all over the world set up here —you even brush shoulders with celebrities from time to time.

Oh hey, just being jealous about this amazing flea market.
When Odd Twin opened its doors in April of 2009, there was a new reason to celebrate vintage fashion as a wearable and trendy option for anyone looking to revel in the joy of getting dressed in the morning. We are proud to offer our friends all over New York, the best in men’s and women’s vintage clothing from the 1920s through the 1980s.
Owner, Francesca Neville, who has been collecting and wearing vintage for as long as she can remember, decided it was time to share her passion with Brooklyn. Armed with a degree in apparel design and her own line of children’s rock and roll clothing under her belt, she opened Odd Twin, knowing that she could present to the public a well edited collection. Not only does she handpick each item found at Odd Twin, but she has also found a way to ‘save’ many beautiful pieces that have been damaged through their years of love and use, by redesigning them and giving them a second chance. This is Odd Twin’s Born Again line of fashion.
Aside from a store full of clothing, Odd Twin also offers a large assortment of men’s and women’s jewelry and accessories, including everything from hats to ties and belts and gloves. You will also find a small selection of adorable vintage baby clothes and a good sized home section featuring beautiful working radios, lamps, record players and records, and lots of knick-knacks that will bring you back in time.
A trip to Odd Twin is nothing short of a sensory adventure and a stroll down memory lane as well as an amazing opportunity to add some key pieces to your wardrobe and your home! You are so very welcome to come and share in our passion for vintage!
